Thanks, Clare!

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
neutral  Oliver Dirs: This could be correct, particularly if we're talking about hand-pumped crop sprayers; not so sure if we're talking about tractor-mounted "boom" sprayers. Helen, any idea which it is? In my answer to "preparatsluss" I assumed it was for the latter.
