Thanks for the reply. So 02 or 025 for 7gpa sounds like a good plan. On the 80 degree note, I have thought about that with the tight 15" spacing. Another thought was to use 110 degree on 30" spacing for burndown and be able to double my rate by buying a full set and turning the other half on to make 15" for contact work. However, with my stripper head wheat stubble coverage is sometimes an issue, so I might be wise to stick to 15" spacing. Contact herbicides I have used are AIM, Vida (ET), Sharpen and paraquat.
I have always seen better work done at 12-13 than 16-20mph, especially when the wind is blowing more off target at those higher speeds.
All of my in crop herbicides are systemic so that isn't as much of an issue.
If I had the money, I would like a Capstan Sharpshooter system so I could really dial in my droplet size!
