Soybean School: Do Twin-Fan Nozzles Make a Big Difference?

Double nozzles are necessary to get the best possible coverage of a vertical target, true or false? Turns out, the answer is more likely that third option — the dreaded “it depends.”

In this Soybean School episode, Real Agriculture’s Bernard Tobin is joined by Jason Deveau, Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Food spray specialist to recap some recent research done out at Ridgetown, Ont.
