Control Grassweed and reduce drift with the new Syngenta Defy3D Nozzles – Now available from stock with FREE SHIPPING*
An evolved version of the 2004 “Hawk” spraytip and the later “Defy”, the Defy 3D nozzle launched late August 2015 and is claimed to help improve Grassweed control and reduce spray drift.
Syngenta application expert Ben Magri says the Defy nozzle has now been trumped by the new Defy 3D, further improving coverage and reducing drift by a huge 60-75% over the standard flat fan, depending on nozzle size.
“Although the Defy was very good, the coefficient of variation – or evenness of spray – along the boom when alternating forward and backwards wasn’t as good as it could be.
“You would get the “rugby ball” effect, whereas the new 3D nozzle gives perfect 50-50 distribution between front and back and was the main reason for the redesign,” explains Mr Magri.
In Syngenta trials the improved nozzle performance has equated to a 6% improvement in blackgrass control when using a Liberator + Defy pre-emergence herbicide stack in 100 litres/ha of water.
