Wind Shields For Planter Sprayers
"I got tired of the wind blowing away half of the herbicide spray when I was planting my corn and beans. I came up with this idea to stop the problem and it
works great," says Dave Kovar, Braddyville, Iowa, about his "wind shields" for spray nozzles on his Deere planter.
Kovar made triangle-shaped boxes out of 26-ga. steel and mounted them over each row nozzle. The top of each shield is 6 in. across and flares out to 12 in. at the bottom, enough to let the spray pat-tern fan out across the entire row.
"Now I can plant on any day whether the wind is blowing or not," says Kovar.
