Cost, Nozzles, Pump, Spraying time
In agricultural sector generally farmer uses traditional way that is spray carried on backpack and spraying crop. This becomes time consuming, costly and human fatigue is major concern, these problems can be overcome by using agricultural reciprocating multi sprayer. It facilitates uniform spread of the chemicals, capable of throwing chemicals at the desired level, precision made nozzle tip for adjustable stream and capable of throwing foggy spray depending on requirement. In our project we use slider crank mechanism to convert rotary motion into reciprocating motion to operate the pump, thus the pesticide is spread through the nozzle. This work gives continuously flow of pesticide at required pressure and height. A special arrangement is implemented in this project to adjust the pressure as high or low. We also use a weed cuter in our model for removing unwanted plants. By using agricultural sprayer, spraying time and weeding time, human efforts reduces and results in cost reduction.
