LUDHIANA, DECEMBER 28:- Spraying techniques are important for efficient use of pesticides. Wrong methods of spraying leads to health and environmental hazards and their effect may not be desirable. Majority of the farmers do not follow proper spraying application techniques due to which pest control remains unsatisfactory.
