    I know it’s been awhile but I kind of got thoroughly defeated by this task. BUT! Willing to look into it again.

    I’m in Texas actually, and am doing a 3 acre hemp plot. We’re doing plastic mulch for it, and I’m curious how you would recommend doing any foliar sprays on it? My regular tractor won’t be able to clear the plants after they get very tall, so straddling the rows won’t work – do you just leave a tractor width of space between every n’th row based on the width of the booms?

    I think I prefer a three point mounted to a pull type based on the extra set of wheel tracks and maneuverability penalty, and understand it’ll take longer to do the application if I do 100 or 150 gallons instead of 300.
