Generally, this is the time of the year you complete shopping for nozzles because the spraying season is just around the corner. This task must be on top of your to do list if you are one of those who will be applying the new 2,4-D or Dicamba products for crops that are resistant to these products. According to a survey conducted by Farm Journal magazine and reported in its Mid-February issue, out of the 411 people they contacted (mostly in Midwest, including Ohio) 40% of them indicated they plan to grow dicamba-tolerant soybeans. About 11% indicated they are still undecided. If you happened to be one of these people who will use dicamba products for weed control, you better check the labels because you now have to use one of the nozzles they recommend on their labels, and operate those nozzle within a recommended range of pressures.
In the past, the labels on chemicals gave some vague and general statements when referring to application equipment.
