Abstract

Weed control efficacy and droplet size were evaluated for the Turbo TeeJet nozzle, the Turbo Drop Twin Fan nozzle, the Air Induction Extended Range nozzle, the Turbo TeeJet Induction nozzle, the Turbo Twin Jet nozzle, and the Low Volume Sprayer Turbo nozzle with a spray solution containing the herbicide active ingredients glyphosate and dicamba. The nozzles were each tested with and without a deposition aid included in the spray mixture. There were no significant differences in weed control efficacy among the nozzle treatments, with or without the deposition aid. Droplet size varied among the nozzle types, and increased substantially when the deposition aid was added to the spray solution.
