Wheat School: Choosing Water Volumes & Nozzles for Tank-Mix Partners

Episodes:

When considering tank mixes, whether in-crop or pre-seed, most farmers spend most of their time ensuring the products will control what they’re targeting and if there are any re-cropping restrictions. Rightly so, as these are the two most important factors, however how much thought do you give to the water volume and nozzle selection when mixing two or more products? For some applications, the ideal scenario for each product might actually be opposite each other. What do you do then?

In this episode of the Wheat School, Tom Wolf, sprayer specialist, discusses this pesky problem of sprayer settings and set up in a less than idea situation. Wolf explains how as farmers work to address glyphosate resistance with tank-mix partners — a smart move — their chosen water volume and spray quality may negatively impact the glyphosate’s performance. Do you meet in the middle, switch to two passes (!!) or up active ingredient rates? Watch to learn more.
