Proper Tank Cleaning Focus of New Webcast

A new webcast – titled “Tank Cleaning” – has been added to the Focus on Cotton online series from the Plant Management Network and Cotton Incorporated.

Inadequate or improper cleaning of sprayer systems can often cause contamination issues and costly damage to plant foliage. This new webcast helps cotton growers, consultants and other industry experts properly remove all unwanted residue from equipment and prevent the unintentional introduction of herbicides to sensitive or non-labeled cotton crops.


This 29-minute talk by Fred Whitford, Clinical Engagement Professor at Purdue University, provides information that helps users thoroughly check sprayer systems for herbicide residue, avoid common cleaning mistakes and residue build-up, and develop a comprehensive step-by-step cleanout procedure.

This presentation is part of the Focus on Cotton series made available by the Plant Management Network and Cotton Incorporated. The Focus on Cotton series contains more than 50 webcasts on various aspects of cotton crop management, including agronomic practices, crop protection and ag engineering. The presentations are accessible online at any time.

The resource also features a newly improved Cotton Extension Search tool, where users can conveniently search for extension resources across all U.S. land-grant universities serving cotton producers.
