I'm wanting to spray my own corn/beans next year, hired it before. I plan to spray at ~15" corn. Beans pre-emerge and ~18". I bought an old pull type 40', and am in the process of getting it all ready. It has 30" spaced with 2 way "drop" nozzles between the rows now for taller corn. I just want to broadcast. If I just went to single fan nozzles at the bar what would be a standard nozzle spacing and a good rule of thumb on nozzle/bar height?

Thanks Gary. I'll do 20" spacing. This just has u-bolts holding the bar height, so I'll try setting it for the pre-emerge on beans and then try moving it up once for the corn and beans post-emerge being that the heights are similar. Hopefully I won't have to mess with it too much. I just farm 80 acres part-time, so I will be spraying when the weather is just right. If I have to do a second corn spray I'll hire it being that they'll knock over much less with their width.

get a chart to determine gallons per acre, it will have nozzle size, speed, spacing and pressure and will give you a gpa based on these factors, I use 8003 flat fan stainless tips which are pretty common.
