The Expedite® Pesticide Application System is a unique backpack application system. The system is unique in that the packaging, formulation and applicator are an integrated system. This closed, ready-to-use system gives a pesticide applicator a way in which to apply pesticides that reduces exposure to chemicals through direct handling of the pesticide[1]. The light weight, accurate delivery, Controlled Droplet Application (CDA) spray system allows for a more efficient way to apply pesticides[2] [3].
