Horsch introduces ‘tilted’ sprayer nozzles caps for more effective application.

Horsch has developed ‘tilted’ sprayer nozzles caps for use in band application and improved wetting in ridge crops. Two variants are offered: a grey nozzle with 17.5 degree angle for a 10cm tilt and a red nozzle with 8.75 degree angle for a 5cm tilt.

Using a combination of straight and tilted nozzle caps offers a broad range of row width configurations. Each nozzle cap is equipped with an Agrotop RowFan 40-02 E nozzle including seal and nozzle inserter. The tilted caps are available for the spring spraying season.

Band spraying

In band spraying application with a 25cm nozzle spacing, the tilted nozzles allow the row width to be adapted by 5cm (red nozzles) or 10cm (grey nozzles). For example, in sugar beet, a row spacing of 45cm is possible.

Ridge spraying

Another interesting advantage of these nozzle caps is that the combination of main nozzle (HD) and secondary nozzle (ND) with a nozzle spacing of 25 cm, allows for a highly effective wetting of ridge crops.
