Abstract
One of the major problems in attempting mechanized spraying of cotton is the difficulty of utilizing a row crop sprayer without causing considerable mechanical damage to the crop. Early work at Serere Experiment Station in 1952/53 indicated that this damage would cause a loss of three-quarters of a sack of bolls per acre per application. To overcome this a type of row crop sprayer was needed which did not require the passage of a tractor through the cotton, and on this specification the Uganda Long Boom was developed.
