LERAP 3-star accreditation for fan nozzel

SPRAY equipment manufacturer Lurmark has gained LERAP (Local Environmental Risk Assessments for Pesticides) 3-Star accreditation for its new DriftBETA 025 flat fan nozzle.

DriftBETA is the only complete range of air-inclusion nozzles on the market to have received such accreditation, according to the company.

The new 025 nozzle is expected to appeal to spray operators striving to meet tight spraying windows, caused when weather conditions are changeable. Lurmark points out that it gives operators the ability to apply chemicals accurately, with minimal risk of drift, at 12kph and at 3bar pressure and obtain an application rate of 100 litres/ha.

The Lurmark DriftBETA 025 nozzle costs £3.50. &#42
