"The ESS half rate application required the same number of treatments but it used half as much material to provide the same level of control."

"We have reduced our pesticide rates by 50–66%. It costs $300 per acre for chemicals to spray cabbage, so we are really able to cut costs."

"The ESS sprayer is a very well built machine. In the past three years we have had no problems other than replacing one gauge. There is very little maintenance except for general cleaning. It works very well with all our crops such as lettuce, peppers, tomatoes, cabbage and spinach.
Since we have been using the ESS sprayer we have been steadily reducing our spray bills per acre each year. The biggest advantage we have seen is the reduced disease pressure and increased crop quality in all our vegetables. We spend less time in the field spraying due to less fill-up time because of the low volume (gpa) rates per acre."

"The [ESS 450RC] sprayer’s coverage on top and bottom sides of the leaves is surpassed by none. With this type of coverage I was able to cut some rates on pesticides and fungicides up to 50%.Time is also an issue in spraying vegetables and with some minor modifications to my 70’ boom, I am able to spray 20 acres in about an hour.The control box in the cab is set up with an individual side to side tilt, not a solid boom adjustment. This option makes maneuvering much easier with rolling terrain and stakes. Maintenance is fairly minimal and [ESS] was willing to assist with any issues along the way. Over all we are pleased with the purchase."
D. Spina & Sons, Inc. —
"We used ten times less water and get better coverage. We saved enough on chemicals to pay for the sprayer in four months."

"This week Belco finished the harvest season for Table Grapes. It was a good season for us in terms of quantity and quality, always supplying the best fruit to our customers. Many factors are components of a good season and one of them was the ESS technology. For that reason we would like to say thank you guys for the idea, for the machine, for the professional attitude and technical support we received from you guys this season.
In E. sweet we have got some results I would like to show:
Season 2007, conventional deeping of Gibb and PGR:
|-B (under 18 mm)||23.5%|
Season 2008, ESS spray for Gibb and PGR:
In my personal opinion this variation in comparison with last season is a big success related to the ESS technology. We have to say also the grapes bunches got better looking and are better quality this season. In the same time, the efficiency of the technology in the farms operations has a direct impact on the cost reduction.
|-B (under 18 mm)||10.7%|
I think ESS have a huge potential in Egypt in all kind of crops is for that reason you are always welcome to continue working with Belco in the long term."

"The highest percentage of leaf area coverage was observed on the underside of leaves treated with the ESS Sprayer."
Dr. Richard Derksen —
"Could we demonstrate a difference between ESS & hydraulic sprayers in terms of better foliage & fruit disease control
& higher marketable yields?
"Yes, and significant in most cases."
Dr. Thomas Zitter —
"The ESS is an excellent piece of equipment [ESS Sprayer Model 350RC]. You get great coverage and save time by not having to make so many trips to fill up your tank because you spray less gallons per acre. You also spend less time overall spraying your crops and reduce your spraying costs. It works well on all our crops, i.e. Pumpkins, sweet corn, tomatoes, peppers, summer squash and winter squash. No problems have occurred with nozzle clogging. I highly recommend this piece of equipment."

"I BELIEVE IN THE TECHNOLOGY of the Electrostatic Spraying Systems SC-1 and XT-3 Sprayers. I’ve never seen a product
that can disperse the chemicals we need to use to fight MRSA and Staph so effectively. The [electrostatic] nozzle is truly amazing! I believe in providing our players with the best protection against staph and other bacteria commonly found in our profession.
The ongoing problem of fighting bacteria and fungus now has a solution and the
[ESS electrostatic] sprayer provides us with that."

"EO water [electrolyzed oxidative water] was found to be effective when used in conjunction with electrostatic spraying for eliminating pathogenic and indicator populations of bacteria from hatching eggs."
