For use in band application and improved wetting in ridge crops, Horsch has developed tilted sprayer nozzles caps. Two variants are offered: a grey nozzle with a 17.5-degree angle for a 10cm tilt and a red nozzle with an 8.75-degree angle for a 5cm tilt.
The company states that using a combination of straight and tilted nozzle caps offers a broad range of row width configurations. Each nozzle cap is equipped with an Agrotop RowFan 40-02 E nozzle including seal and nozzle inserter. The tilted caps are available for the spring spraying season.
In band spraying applications with a 25cm nozzle spacing, the tilted nozzles allow the row width to be adapted by 5cm (red nozzles) or 10cm (grey nozzles). This means that in sugar beet, a row spacing of 45cm is possible.
In combination with the main nozzle and secondary nozzle at a spacing of 25cm, the new nozzle caps can also be used for the wetting of ridge crops.
