Consistent boom height is important to combating weed resistance for three reasons: to reduce uneven spray dispersion if the boom is too low, to reduce spray droplet drift if the boom is too high and to reduce damage to the boom or crop if the boom is on uneven terrain.
During a busy spraying season, the sprayer you use is just as important as the product you apply. But even more important than either factor is an operator keeping an eye on it all.
Build your weed management plan with a yearlong focus.

When evaluating your weed control plan, it important to consider proper cleanout of your system. It could help protect your yield.
In recent years, weed resistance has made the need to flush out tanks and equipment between pesticides and herbicides more frequent. Direct injection can make the life of a farmer a lot easier by helping to reduce time spent on this chore. Learn more about the number of advantages direct injection systems have in today’s crop systems.
