Readers Review Their Backpack Sprayers

We initiated an online reader survey and sweepstakes in January of this year to gather information about how TechLine performs and ask our readers to answer a few questions about their herbicide backpack sprayer’s safety, durability, ease of use, and performance.

Northern Minnesota Ag Inspector Takes the Prize

Steven Sindelir, County Agricultural Inspector for Lake of the Woods County in northern Minnesota is the winner of the Techline Reader Sweepstakes! Steven responded to our email announcement with, "Wow, that’s fantastic. I never win anything!” For his prize, Sindelir chose a SP Systems International Professional Model 100 Backpack Sprayer (~$180 value). 

We expect he will put that sprayer to good use. Sindelir is responsible for controlling noxious weeds on county land, mainly small patches of purple loosestrife. He documents population location and control history, and monitors all known locations. Searching for new populations and responding to new sightings of noxious weeds in the county are also among his invasive plant management responsibilities. 

Congratulations, Steven. And thanks to the 189 others who responded to the TechLine Annual Reader Survey.
