Mango is most important commercial grown fruit crop and World’s mango production is averaging about 22 million metric tons per year. India is largest fruit producer after China. However, the country having advantages over mango producing countries, but productivity continues to be low. To increase the overall plant health and fruit yield as well as to protect the trees from harmful fungal diseases, spraying is necessary for mango orchard. Aero blast and air assisted sprayers are commonly used for spraying orchards, but energy required for spraying is more as compared to boom type sprayer. Loss of pesticides also observed with these sprayers. This study paper presents details about development and performance of better boom type orchard sprayers; which can reduce spraying cost and loss pesticides.
