Syngenta XC Turf Nozzles

Syngenta XC Turf Nozzles

The new Syngenta Turf XC Nozzles suitable for application of herbicides and fertilisers using a knapsack or boom mounted and produce significantly more droplets per ml of spray liquid in comparison to other AI or low-drift nozzles tested which ensures greater coverage of the target leaf.

The added velocity of the larger droplets means they are significantly less vulnerable to drift. Importantly, research has shown the 04 XC foliar nozzle produces less than 3% small sub 100 micron-sized droplets that are highly susceptible to drift, compared to 14% with a traditional flat fan nozzle. In practice, the drift reduction naturally gives an average three to four extra days per month suitable for spray application - enabling more timely treatments that are crucial to achieve improved results. The size of the nozzle orifice primarily dictates the spray water volume, within the restrictions of the sprayer speed and the operating pressure. In addition, when operating with larger 08 sized nozzles designed for wetting agents, liquid fertilisers and soil treatment fungicides, the angled spray pattern can achieve better penetration of the dense turf sward, to reach the target soil surface more effectively. The outputs are regulated, with an 04 nozzle giving twice the output of an 02 at any given speed and pressure, whilst an 08 will give twice the output of an 04, etc.

Application

  • Forward speed also has an effect on the water volume physically applied. Reducing the speed will increase the water volume, and therefore the product application rate, by 50%.
  • Elevating the operating pressure will also increase the water volume, but as a result will tend to increase the risk of drift. Reducing the pressure will reduce the driftiness of a nozzle, but can compromise the spray pattern and the momentum of droplets to hit and stick on the target. Most nozzles are designed to work most efficiently at three to four bar.

  • Whilst one nozzle size can deliver different water volumes by adjusting speed and pressure, you can be more efficient and precise in your accurate application of the most appropriate water volume by selecting different nozzles sizes. A good selection to have available for consistent application in most turf situations at two to three bar would be a set of 025 nozzles for greens, delivering a water volume of 200 - 300 l/ha at four to five km/h; 04s applying 220 - 380 l/ha at five to seven KPH on fairways and a set of 08s that will deliver 450 - 770 l/ha at five to seven km/h.
