But they all yield UC (=ultra coarse?) droplet size. Not good?
AI and AIC TeeJet tips don't have ratings below 30psi in the chart.
AIXR tips have XC (=extremely coarse?) droplet sizes at 20psi, not ideal for prodiamine?
Not sure why you think UC or XC droplets are not ideal. Prodiamine is a soil app, not contact or systemic. I am personally going to choose at least an XC, preferrable UC droplet size for soil apps.
The question marks signaled I was asking if XC or UC was OK or not.

Yes, I saw that. Doesn't change my response. Not trying to be snarky or anything, I was just wondering. If you don't know because this is all new to you then let me rephrase. For soil apps, you generally want coarser droplets. TBH, I'm not sure how coarse you need to be but my thought is the coarser the better so the drops are bigger and heavier and drop below the canopy easily. If you're going to irrigate right after applying, it probably doesn't matter much. But, seeing as when you choose a 15 or 20 psi CF valve, you do get a lot of options in the UC size, I don't see why one wouldn't just pick that.

Just got my dfw_wand on order. Little tricky finding all the correct parts on spaysmarter so I figured I would post some direct links to what I pieced together.

Cap and Seat

Here are the links to the teejet tips suggested by ware.

For foliar blanket apps

For foliar spot spraying
TeeJet XR Extended Range Flat Spray Tip Color:Yellow

For soil treatment blanket apps
Teejet AI Air Induction Flat Spray Tip Color:Red

Total cost of everything here was ~$85

Does this mean that each color cap is specific to the spray tips indicated in each row? i.e. if you want the AI Teejet tip then you should get the red cap (3rd row) and that tip wouldn't fit the white cap (first row)? At first, I thought that it was all the same part and you just picked a color based on preference. It's not clear on the spraysmarter site. It just lets you select color of the cap but no indication that there are differences.
You would want that red one for an AI nozzle, but no - most of those caps are available in 10 colors. See color code chart on the top right corner of the catalog page. Also see "How to order:" section on the bottom right corner of the catalog page.

So will the cap & gasket set linked by @FlaDave work with all three tips he linked?

Yes those are the parts I ordered and they all fit together just fine for me.

With limited experience today, I would say the chapin 20v can not keep up with a 2-3 boom nozzle setup. I had a significant pressure difference between the 2 aixr nozzles I had on the 2 boom.
which nozzles were you running?

I ordered the 2 boom chapin and XR11002 VS nozzles. At 0.2gpm@40PSI the 2 nozzles will put out the 0.4gpm that the original red fan tip and keep under the pump spec of 0.4-0.5gpm from chapin.

Just wondering if I am doing this right.

Will a 1.8gpm pump rated at 60psi (although usually runs around 40 psi when spraying) be capable of spraying 3 nozzles?

This is on an atv sprayer that I am wanting to build a small 3 nozzle boom for to provide faster spraying of my property. I would be using this for both Pre-M and Post-M spraying.

It can. You will need to stay under the GPM rating of the pump AI110-04 nozzles operated in sets of three need 1.2 GPM. The extra 0.6 GPM is to maintain pressure and agitation

right now, the tank has no agitation. How difficult is it to add it? Or would it require a different pump.

Also, 3 of these nozzles would require a 40" boom, correct? One nozzle in center and one on each end?

Agitation would be nice to have but I have a 16 gallon tank with no agitation on a 3 nozzle boom and have had no problem spraying common liquid and wettable granular herbicides with no clogging or material settling out. I also have TeeJet 50 mesh screens installed behind the nozzles to catch any foreign matter before it gets to the nozzles.

I first mix all ingredients thoroughly with water in a five gallon bucket with a drill attached stirrer. I fill the tank half way with water, add the mix from the five gallon bucket then top it off with water and then use the stirrer inside the tank for final mixing.

Stirrer link: https://www.lowes.com/pd/Allway-17-75-i ... s/50427878

I used 43" boom length to account for nozzle bracket widths and to cap off the ends of the 3/4" Sched 40 PVC pipe I used as the boom.
There are quite a few boom builds you can search for and get ideas from in this equipment forum.

Thanks guys!

I have the stirrer and normally just put everything into the tank and then use the drill and stirrer in the tank.
