The article presents some suggestions for buying efficient sprayers in order to overcome soybean rust diseases. It states that as concerns mount about a possible fast-moving outbreak of Asian soybean rust disease, the market for new and used sprayers is heating up. Because of the fast-spreading nature of soybean rust, complete fields can be defoliated in 15 to 21 days. That increases the likelihood of having to spray in wet or muddy fields to provide fungicide coverage just prior to or at the earliest stages of spore infection. To curb losses as quickly as possible, one's sprayer assembly should include a number of features that make up a good rust package, including optimum horsepower, traction and boom stability.
