Abstract:

In 1971, in the training and experimental farm of Tashkent Institute for Engineers for Irrigation and the Mechanization of Agriculture which is located on the territory of the rayon district, the OVKh-14 was employed for the ground defoliation of the cotton plant. And although a comparatively small area was treated 1170 hectares, the new sprayer with a dusting device demonstrated high effectiveness and great advantages both in comparison with the old sprayer and in comparison with aviation defoliation. In worldwide cotton raising these machines are considered the best for treating fields against agricultural pests.
