I think the most important thing with spraying is to be able to get around in a timely manner. Low water rates help with this.
I have an out lying block I always do in 2 tank loads. I could do it in 1 tank load if I went at 60 l/ha, does anybody go this low?
Which would be the best nozzles in this situation?

I use blue BFS nozzles, 120l/ha at 3 bar 12km in the main. Used to be on lilac Guardian Air but the nozzles block far to easily with tiny specks and buggering the spray pattern. Also use small blue top hat filters.

It’s ok guys no need to fall out there invariably never is a true best nozzle a lot of horses for courses we tend to use guardian air for most jobs but wo7ld be interested in knowing the price of the ex ray bfs nozzles just out of interest although I have just replaced a se5 of guardians so not needing new ones for a bit
Same here, get good results from GAs but every day's a school day. Also aware of the fact that the flat fan boys will be quietly laughing at us fashion victims rushing headlong in to the next trend.

While we are talking Guardian Airs how do people go about dismantling them to clear a blockage. Is there a special tool rather than a pen knife which inevitably cuts the spurs off in time?

Get a 6" piece of multicore copper flex, strip half the insulation off then use one of the wires to poke through the nozzle, saves dismantling them and twisting off those little tabs

Five nature-recovery projects spanning nearly 100,000ha across the West Midlands, Cambridgeshire, the Peak District, Norfolk and Somerset have been announced by the government and Natural England today (Thursday, May 26).

This is the equivalent in size to all 219 current National Reserves.

The aim of the projects is to deliver nature recovery at a landscape scale, helping to tackle biodiversity loss, climate change and improve public health and well-being.

All five projects will make a significant contribution towards the national delivery of the international commitment to protect at least 30% of land and...
