Plant Protection Chemistry New Zealand : Dispenser applications and examples

A version without the spreader cone, the EZidose, can be used for other granular products such as fertilisers, insecticides or even to dose animals. The Weed-a-Metre was developed to spread herbicide granules around newly planted trees. Granule application has many advantages over liquid applications of herbicides. It is light, robust, versatile and can be used with any suitable granule on.
