Development of a Self-Propelled Cost-Effective Herbicide Boom Sprayer

Michael C. Amonye; Maiwada L. Suleiman; Usman S. Mohammed; Uche P. Chukwu; Abdullahi El-Okene; Aminu Saleh
The common herbicide application technology used in Nigeria is the Knapsack sprayer. Though designed for small farms and gardens, all scales farms in the country utilize the Knapsack sprayer. This is due to the exorbitant cost of imported Self-propelled boom sprayers and the attendant lack of spare parts and maintenance technicians when imported. Apart from exposing the operator to poisonous chemicals, the Knapsack sprayer is very laborious and has very low coverage with unsteady pumping and irregular walking steps. It is obviously ineffective for sized farms. This study developed a cost-effective Self-propelled Herbicide Boom Sprayer with greater coverage, reduced exposure to chemicals and better uniform application. Components were selected locally to ensure availability of spare parts and maintenance technicians. The prototype machine was constructed at the Welding and Fabrication Workshop of the Department of Agricultural and Bio-resources Engineering, Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria. It is essentially a mini-truck modified with locally available components to a Self-propelled Herbicide Boom Sprayer. A gear reducer is mounted in-between the gearbox and axle of the mini-truck to deliver operational farm spraying speeds at the wheels. The vehicle engine also powers the spray pump mounted at the back. The pump draws herbicide from a 100-liter’s capacity plastic tank to five impact nozzles set on a boom mounted at the rear end of the vehicle chassis. The Prototype was built at the cost of one million two hundred and three thousand (₦1,203,000:00), naira only.
