Agriculture Applications

Please choose from these three general categories of spray application:

Broadcast Spraying

Broadcast Spraying

Broadcast applications deliver spray over the entire surface area of the field or crop foliage.  Set up your boom nozzle spacing to overlap nozzle output, and use flat fan or flood style nozzles to ensure uniform coverage.  Use nozzles with matching patterns- all spray angle degrees the same.  Use wider spray angles, lower your boom height, use air induction nozzles, and drive slower to minimize drift.

Banding and Row Crop Spraying

Banding and Row Crop Spraying

Banding and directed application delivers spray to targeted treatment zones.  Spray nozzles are mounted on the boom and positioned to minimize overspray.  Lechler nozzles and boom parts enable you to reach your application zone- above, beside, or underneath the crop- with efficiency.

Orchards, Vineyards and Specialty Crops

Orchards, Vineyards and Specialty Crops

Vineyard, Orchard, and Specialty Crop applications may use air blast sprayers that aim the spray pattern into a moving steam of air that carries droplets into the plant canopy.  The air steam, with the right size nozzles or orifices,  work together to deliver on-target spraying. 

Lechler offers a complete line of nozzles and parts that range from ceramic  or stainless steel orifices, traditional hollow cone nozzles, standard ceramic and stainless steel flat fan, and a full range of innovative air induction nozzles designed to deliver on-target results when higher spray pressures are required.
