This new spray tip is ideal for postemergence products. The tip has all polymer construction for chemical and wear resistance, plus it has a 100-degree wide-angle, air-induction, twin-tapered, flat-spray tip pattern and a 60-degree angle between leading and trailing patterns for increased canopy coverage and penetration.

HYPRO 3D NOZZLE
Pentair introduces the Hypro 3D nozzle, designed to reduce drift compared to conventional flat fan nozzles. The goal is to deliver up to a 10% increase in preemergence weed control because more spray hits the target. These nozzles have been 10 years in the making, and were developed in partnership with Syngenta. The key is optimum droplet size for coverage, with fewer droplets bouncing away.

Y-DROP HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT
Even people who love Y-Drops sometimes report they would prefer better control of where nitrogen is placed. 360 Yield Center is working on a solution. In fact, height control for Y-Drops could be released as soon as 2018. The goal is to maintain a designated height, often 12 to 14 inches. A pair of hoses delivers the product to the base of plants. Your sprayer will need an existing boom height controller to use this system. Visit 360yieldcenter.com.

TACTICAL WAND FOR GUIDANCE
It can be hard to steer that sprayer through tall corn. For those using the 360 Yield Center Y-Drop system, here is a simple add-on solution. The tactical wand is a sensor placed in front of the wheel to help drivers make sure they are in the center of the row. This yellow u-shaped sensor connects to existing steering device systems. If you have a globe, simply unplug it at the base and plug in the wand electronics. Using GPS logic, it alerts when the sprayer ventures off center.
