Three Tools For Making Better Spray Nozzle Decisions

Soybean College breakout session focuses on best management practices for spraying applications.

Deciding when and what to spray can quickly put farmers into a decision-making maze. What nozzle type should they use? What part of the canopy are they targeting? What psi will work best? What about body type? Size? Angle? And how do these factors affect potential drift?
