Abstract

The article presents a review of literature in the field of microbiological preparations used in agriculture. The aim of the article is to test the substance called EmFarma PlusTM and establish the correlation between the pressure and design of crop sprayer nozzles and the survival of beneficial microorganisms. The data obtained was used to design an appropriate nozzle for the application of microbiological preparations.

 

Keywords: Microbiological preparations, crop spray nozzles, bacterial mortality.
