For indicative freight prices, see page 69. www.croplands.com.au Spray Quality Systems of nozzle classification (BCPC, ASAE) have been developed around the world to unify and simplify the description of droplet size ranges that different nozzles produce. Accordingly, nozzles can be classified as producing an EXTREMELY COARSE, VERY COARSE, COARSE, MEDIUM, FINE and VERY FINE spray quality. The spray quality a nozzle produces is very important. Generally, FINE spray quality will increase potential for coverage, but the small droplets are very prone to drift and environmental loss (evaporation). On the other hand, COARSE spray quality with larger droplets will greatly reduce drift potential but may compromise coverage, especially on small targets using low water volumes. Choosing the coarsest spray quality without compromising efficacy is the trick. Refer to the information provided by the manufacturer of the chemicals being used, eg chemical labels or data sheets, or consult the Nufarm Spraywise Boom Spray Application Guide – available from Nufarm or Croplands. The tables on the left will assist you in finding a nozzle suitable for the job. An important point to remember when choosing a spray nozzle is that one nozzle can produce different spray qualities at different pressures. For example, an AirMix® 02 will produce a COARSE spray quality at 3 bar, but a MEDIUM spray quality at 5 bar. Droplet size classifications are based on BCPC specification and are in accordance with ASAE Standard S-572.
