Abstract/Contents:Discusses field trials "initiated using a four-wheeler spray system to evaluate boomless nozzles evaluating pattern quality, swath width, droplet spectra, and efficacy" for weed control in pastures, rangelands, and roadsides, stating that "tank mix treatments containing glyphosate and paraquat were applied to a growing wheat crop planted in 20-foot wide strips for comparing each nozzle treatment." Lists the nozzle types compared, including "TeeJet BoomJet (XP), Hypro Boom Extender (XT), Wilger Combo-Jet (WC-J), and the Evergreen Boom Buster (BB)" and states that "visual ratings for efficacy, uniformity of control, and measurements for width of control at four weeks after treatment [were] reported." Pofiles further materials and methods of the trials, and reports results, stating that "the highest uniformity score was with the XT and the BB...and the lowest was with the XP...The widest swaths were found with the glyphosate treatments." Mentions that "efficacy and control uniformity ratings for this trial are no yet completed [as of publication date]."
