Agricultureâs (USDA), Agricultural Research Service (ARS) who has worked close with the Dept. of Defenseâs Deployed Warfighter Protection Program (DWFP) to evaluate a number of sprayers used to spray pest control products targeted insect vectors of human and animal diseases. Using facilities at the U.S. Navy Entomology Center of Excellence, nearly 100 different sprayers have been tested for droplet size under various operational setups (nozzles, pressured, flowrates, spray solutions, etcâ¦). Over the past several years, this data has been incorporated into an extensive database. This app provides users with a quick, easily searchable interface that returns droplet size data for the specified operational setup. The database is structured such that users are requested to select specific operational parameters which include: - Company Name (of the spray system used) - Spray System (model number) - Solution Type (carrier solution used) - Additive/Insecticide - Sprayer Setting/Nozzle - Pressure (psi) - Flowrate (oz/min) - Dilution Using the above specified parameters, the app will provide droplet size results to the user. These include: - DV0.1, DV0.5, and DV0.9 o Droplet size (in Âµm) such that 10, 50, or 90% of the spray volume, respectively, is contained in spray droplet sizes of equal or less. The results, along with the initial parameters, are time and date stamped and can be saved to the userâs device under any name of their choice. The app allows for these results to be emailed to any address of their choice. The saved results can be viewed or emailed at any time.

I created this app to give you information about your yards. I have been gardening nearly my entire life since my Grandfather gave me a package of tomato seeds and my Nana taught me about bearded iris. I want to combine my knowledge of horticulture with my love of weather to give you weekly information about what to do in your yard, that week.If the weather is going to affect the garden, you will hear about it here first.Over the years I have been fortunate to be able to put together my love of gardening and television into the forerunner of this app. For over three years I hosted Extreme Garden Makeover on WCVB in Boston and brought scores of weekly tips to viewers throughout the region. Now, with the ability to put video on an app, you can bring these video tips to you anywhere.

Discover the Art of Flower Arrangement!WHAT is it about Flower arrangement that gets into our blood and makes it have such a hold on us? Why is it, that once intrigued by this new art, we are impatient to go forward and explore every avenue of thought on the subject?The reason why Flower Arranging has such a broad appeal is because it satisfies a need in all of us to do something creative, and, because flowers are within the reach of us all, it seems natural that we should want to learn and practice a subject that we can not only easily execute, as and when we feel like it, but which can be employed to beautify our homes for friends and family alike to enjoy.We all know that a sense of achievement brings with it pride and satisfaction and I am certain it is this feeling which is bringing so much joy into the lives of tens of thousands of men and women who are devotees of the art of Flower Arranging. I have much evidence of this from the thousands of letters I receive from happy people who tell me with great feeling that " they had no previous idea that they could do it " and I recall a simple incident which happened at a Flower Show and which seems to enforce this theory.I had been judging the flower arrangements and had returned to the exhibits for a final look when a little boy about seven years old came up to me and, pointing to the design I was admiring, said " Don't you think that's niceâmy Mummy did that one." His mother then appeared and after chatting she added, " Please don't take any notice of him, although I must tell you that since I have taken up Flower Arranging I have assumed a new importance in the eyes of my family and naturally I am proud."At first the desire on the part of the enthusiast is only to place flowers in a vase better than before and they usually impatiently say " Oh just tell me how to do it quickly, that's all I want to know." But is it?Soon afterwards comes a request to have colour explained, then design. Design is fascinating for, if you really want to delve into it, it includes such subjects as line, rhythm and balance. Discussions on the merits of various types of flowers, the textures of plant material and their relation to the container to be used and the general decor of the room usually follow.

Southeast Early Detection NetworkIdentify and Report Invasive Plants, Insects and Plant Pathogens in the Southeastern United StatesThe Southeast Early Detection Network (SEEDN) app brings the power of EDDMapS to your smartphone. Now you can submit invasive species observations directly with your smartphone from the field. These reports are uploaded to EDDMapS and e-mailed directly to local and state verifiers for review. SEEDN was developed by the University of Georgiaâs Center for Invasive Species and Ecosystem Health. SEEDN is more than just a smartphone app; it is an integrated invasive species reporting and outreach campaign for the Southeastern United States that includes the app and the EDDMapS website.Every year new invasive plants, insects and plant pathogens are found in the Southeast. These non-native invasive species threaten to undermine the health of our environment. More than an inconvenience, invasive plants and animals can greatly alter our native landscape, adversely impact native wildlife, destroy agricultural crops and threaten our health. Invasions of exotic species cost the United States over $120 billion each year. The economic costs are small compared to the ecological ones. The southern United States has millions of acres of public lands; these lands furnish us the water we drink, the air we breathe and countless recreational opportunities. These public lands are highly vulnerable to invasion by exotic plant and animal species; it is estimated that over 18 million or 10% of forested acres in the South have been infested by invasive species.By reporting sightings of invasive plants and other invasive pests, we can better assess the extent of the infestations and hopefully eradicate new infestations before they become huge problems such as kudzu. The goal of SEEDN is to make identification and reporting as easy and efficient as possible.Just a few minutes of your time can help provide vital information needed to protect vital wildlife habitat, agriculture, forestry and your favorite recreational areas from the damage caused by invasive species. This app is so easy to use, you can collect data while out fishing, hiking, kayaking or walking around your neighborhood.Features:â¢ GPS automatically captures your current locationâ¢ Submit an image of your sighting to add validity to your reportâ¢ Online reportingâ¢ Offline reporting: reports saved on your phone to upload when you have network connectivityâ¢ Species ID Guides include images and information on the worst non-native invasive plants, insects and plant pathogensin the Southeastern United Statesâ¢ Provides real-time point distribution maps centered on your current locationâ¢ Invasive species resourcesPowered by EDDMapS - The University of Georgia Center for Invasive Species and Ecosystem Health's Early Detection and Distribution Mapping System. EDDMapS allows for real time tracking of invasive species occurrences using local and national distribution maps and electronic early detection reporting tools.
