Fewer plant protection products are now authorized for use than in the past. Frequent spraying with the same product or a suboptimal technique can lead to resistance in pests and diseases. Therefore, better application techniques could improve the sustainable use of the plant protection products still available. 
This paper presents research results on the optimal use of spraying equipment and technology when growing ornamental crops. This project included a survey of Flemish ornamental growers, in which they reported using knapsack sprayers and lances for crop protection purposes.
Previous research has shown that boom systems may considerably improve crop protection management in greenhouses. The effectiveness of horizontal booms can be negatively affected by nozzle type and boom configuration. We studied the effect of nozzle type, spray pressure, boom height and spraying angle on the result of the spraying in ivy pot plants
