Modified Knapsack Sprayer
The conventional knapsack sprayers has certain limitation like poor work rate, problem of blockage of the nozzle, pressure drop after short duration of use and poor pressure resulting less effect of pesticides on the pests/insects, etc. The idea of making such device came from working on the limitation of conventional knapsack sprayer thereby providing higher productivity, higher pressure, less use of pesticides and effective operation.
