Sprayer Nozzle Selection (B 1158)

Summary

Nozzle selection is one of the most important decisions to be made related to pesticide applications. The type of nozzle affects not only the amount of spray applied to a particular area, but also the uniformity of the applied spray, the coverage obtained on the sprayed surfaces, and the amount of drift that can occur. Each nozzle type has specific characteristics and capabilities and is designed for use under certain application conditions. This publication describes the types that are commonly used for ground application of agricultural chemicals, including flat-fan, even flat-fan and cone nozzle.
