In order to improve spraying results, an inductive electrostatic sprayer was designed. The performance of the sprayer was then tested. The test result shows that the charge-to-mass ratio can reach 0.951 mc/Kg when electrostatic voltage is 20 KV and working pressure is 0.25 to 0.4 MPa. The particle size distribution of charged droplets are more concentrated than that of uncharged droplets, the axial velocity of charged droplets is faster than that of uncharged droplets, and the velocity distribution uniformity is also improved. The average deposition rate under charging conditions is 14% higher than that in uncharged conditions. Moreover, the deposit rate of the back of the leaf is evident.
