        Since no single sprayer can serve every need, nearly all CEA growers will find that two sprayers will best fill the tool box. An HV sprayer can
        serve as the go to for sanitation and spot treating, while an LV or ULV sprayer will be a solid choice for treating large areas. With these two
        tools in place, preventative and curative applications can be made to prevent damage and disease from pests, keep crops growing well and
        protect crop quality – all of which will help to maintain profitability.
