Technical specs about companies and products for sprayer manufacturers, safety regulations, costs of steel components were asked and the data obtained were evaluated. According to the results obtained 48% of the companies manufacture crop sprayers with 400 L tank capacity and 10 m sprayer boom width most commonly, 94.74% of the manufacturing companies stated that they produce in compliance with the Machinery Safety Directive and 35.46% of them are consumables as the highest cost in the production of the sprayer booms. Advices of decreasing manufacturing cost, machine safety regulations and suitability of related standarts TS 4807 and TS 4808 were also made.
