New Nozzle Improves Fungicide Application

TeeJet Technology’s recently introduced AI3070 Dual Pattern Flat Spray Tip was designed to maximize fungicide performance. The AI3070 provides thorough plant coverage with minimal spray drift. This spray tip utilizes a patent-pending design that provides two spray patterns at angles of 30 degrees forward and 70 degrees rearward. The leading pattern provides good penetration into the foliage while the trailing pattern provides thorough coverage of the upper crop canopy and grain head. The AI3070 incorporates air induction technology to minimize spray drift, while producing a large percentage of droplets in the medium to coarse category to maximize surface coverage.

The AI3070 was designed specifically for fungicide application in cereal crops making it ideal for controlling fungal diseases. “The prevalence of fusarium in wheat and other cereal crops makes this an ideal nozzle for small grain producers” states Tim Stuenkel Marketing Manager at TeeJet Technologies. “The AI3070 is designed to maximize the efficacy of a grower’s fungicide application which contributes to higher yields and a higher quality grain sample.”
The AI3070 is offered in six VisiFlo color-coded sizes from -015 to -05 capacities. It is constructed of acetal (polymer) with a recommended operating range of 20-90 psi. The AI3070 tips are easily installed on Quick TeeJet nozzle bodies. The tips are currently available at local TeeJet Authorized Distributors.

TeeJet Technologies manufactures a comprehensive line of products including agricultural spray nozzles for various herbicide/fungicide applications, boom components, valves/manifolds, strainers, and spray guns, as well as light bar guidance systems, sprayer control systems, ISOBUS job computers, assisted steering systems and other precision farming products. In addition, TeeJet Technologies continues to invest in research and development to advance precision application and control technology.

  1. Very interesting however I fail to understand how a nozzle pointing forwards can direct small droplets forwards when a sprayer is moving at 10-15 mph forwards. Would greatly appreciate if you could please send me technical information on the droplet spectrum produced by the twin orifices since its been proven beyond doubt that smaller droplets penetrate better than large droplets. For the control of difficult diseases such as soybean rust my clients have proven for a number of years over s=many million acres that we can obtain superb control using ceramic hollow cone nozzles with spray volumes of 1.5 to 3.0 gpa. Very concerned that this new nozzle will join the numerous others on the shelf increasing a growers costs without making any positive contribution to diease control. Look forward to your response.

  2. Al, I am with TeeJet.I’d be glad to provide you with more information or discuss further at your convenience. This product was designed with input from existing University studies and several more field/lab test are currently underway on the AI3070.

    Thanks.
