1.1 Background to the study
Sprayers are devices that are specially designed to spray liquid quickly and easily. They come in a number of different varieties. A sprayer is used to cover large area such as lawns quickly and easily. A boom sprayer of this type is typically used for spraying chemicals such as pesticides, herbicides, herbicides, insecticides, and fungicides.
Along with proper plant selection and cure, controlling pests in lawn or garden is an important part of maintenance. Pesticide, insecticides, herbicides and fungicides should be limited where possible, but when necessary, they should be used responsibility. This is the major reason why crop protection is highly required by dealing with the destructive agents that that usually attack crops as: weeds, pests, insect, diseases e.t.c.
In the dynamic and post changing agricultural system of the country, especially diversification in the dropping particle and commercialization of agriculture, more equipments are required. The existing boom sprayer is operated by tractor.
Hence a battery operated solar-charged boom sprayer is to be designed with a low weight compared with the existing boom sprayer which is operated by a tractor.
