Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9817105A1] A spraying assembly suitable for market spraying, the spraying assembly comprising a plurality of spray heads (16) each comprising a spray nozzle within a spray hood (17), each spray hood (17) having an aspect ratio of at least 3 when viewed in plan. The heads (16) are mounted on a vehicle (10) to be adjustably orientated in relation to the direction of travel of the vehicle (10) to vary the width of application of each head (16). The spray nozzle is mounted in a major wall of the hood (17) such that the spray material does not contact the interior surface of the hood (17) while the hood (17) minimises spray drift by protecting the spray from the influence of wind and air currents.
