  • Patent number: 6622935
    Abstract: Disclosed is a crop spraying system. The system includes an articulated spraying assembly that is secured to a tractor and/or a pull behind crop sprayer. The articulated assembly permits a fluid, such as an insecticide, to be effectively delivered to a commercial crop, such a citrus tree. Specifically, the fluid can be delivered upwardly from a pivotal boom that is preferably horizontally positioned at a location adjacent the ground. In this manner, the fluid is released upwardly from a position beneath crop canopies. The result is a more effective penetration of the crop by the dispensed fluid.
