The general practice in cotton farms is that the laborers have to hold the spray boom of the tractor-mounted sprayers for spraying pesticides. This makes spraying slow and tiring for the laborers. The innovator conceptualized a drawing of a sprayer using a four-bar mechanism so that more area could be covered. He developed a tractor-mounted PTO-powered machine to spray over crops of small height (mainly cotton). The sprayer has two semi-revolving guns, which continuously spray a liquid with an automatic semi-circular movement using a four-bar mechanism and two independent hydraulic controllable arms.
