NOZZLE TECHNOLOGY SPRAYING QUALITY The objective of an agrochemical treatment is to reach a biological efficiciency to satisfy the needs of the farmers. The nozzle is a key to the performance of the sprayer. It also influences the biological efficiency of the sprayed product. Several factors are key to the result of each application: The product used, and its performance; Criteria influencing the application timing: - growth stage, - pesticides, - diseases, - general status of pesticide, disease, and weed activity, - climate, - spray quality.

NOZZLE TECHNOLOGY CHOICE OF NOZZLES SPRAYING QUALITY Coarse: (e.g. AVI/CVI) nozzles which produce big droplets provide a low risk of drift. Very Coarse: (e.g. AVI) specific nozzles which produce very big droplets. for post-emergence treatments where excellent coverage is necessary. Medium: (e.g. ADI) nozzles which produce medium droplets are less prone to produce drift, depending on the pressure used. Classification of droplet sizes The nozzle "spray quality" is divided into 6 categories, of which 4 main ones : Fine: (e.g. AXI) nozzles which produce fine droplets are more often recommended...

NOZZLE TECHNOLOGY CERTIFICATION Some European countries have spraying regulations which require sensitive areas to be protected by untreated "buffer zones", in order to reduce the risks from spray drift. Spray drift comprises those fine droplets which do not reach the target. The finest droplets (smaller than 100 μm) are the most susceptible to drift from the effect of the wind or other influences. Drift can have hazardous consequences on: Water contamination; Human and animal health; Nearby vegetation. ALBUZ® nozzles are certified in France, the United Kingdom, Germany, Belgium and the...
