When plants aren’t healthy, nitrogen utilization can be limited and yields can suffer. With 360 UNDERCOVER, you can target your fungicide, insecticide and nutrient application where it’s needed most — under the crop canopy.
- Flexible fungicide, insecticide and nutrient applications
- Under-canopy application
- Targeted application
TARGET PROBLEMS AT THE SOURCE
Protect your crops from late-season disease and insect infestations by applying protection where it’s most effective. 360 UNDERCOVER completely surrounds the ear leaf and upper canopy, attacking your target from the top, sides and bottom.
SMART DESIGN FOR SMART APPLICATION
360 UNDERCOVER mounts easily to your 360 Y-DROP® riser and glides smoothly through the field for targeted fungicide, insecticide and nutrient applications. It also gives you multiple nozzle choices, which allow you to adjust your application speed and pressure accordingly.
- Each unit operates up to four multidirectional spray nozzles
- Multiple nozzle types can be used for customized spray pattern and droplet size
- Ability to gain 150-degree horizontal spray application side by side
- Special shell design for better nozzle protection
- Vertical positioning to match your crop’s growth stage
- Ideal for simultaneous application of nitrogen and fungicide/insecticide in dual tank sprayers
- Can be used in corn, seed corn, soybeans, wheat, cotton and sugar beets
Find out what farmers are saying about 360 UNDERCOVER® and how it’s helping improve their yields.
If you don’t control the white fly they’ll suck all the nutrients out of the plant and you might get half a yield or a third of a yield. Now they have some chemicals that work, if you can get the product to the leaf and that’s what the UNDERCOVER does. See More
+ 360 UNDERCOVER VS. OVER-THE-TOP
- Spraying both in the canopy with the 360 UNDERCOVER and from the top from the sprayer boom resulted in the best coverage.
- Coverage matters - the best coverage resulted in the top yields, an average of 3.9 bu/A more than no coverage.
- In-canopy application with 360 UNDERCOVER allowed for optimal disease control especially this year for the stem rots in central Illinois.
The grower used 360 UNDERCOVER on a 60 ft. Miller system. This soybean field had multiple row spacings (12”,20”,30”) and populations (100,000 and 140,000) to study application effects in multiple management strategies. Insecticide, fungicide, and a foliar fertilizer containing Mn,Zn, and S was applied.
A check strip was left in each row spacing and each population. Strips included 360 UNDERCOVER in the canopy, above the canopy with the regular spray boom, and a combination of both in and above the canopy.

+ 360 UNDERCOVER IN SOYBEANS AND CORN
- Even when disease wasn’t present in soybean fields, an application resulted in an increase in pod and grain fill.
- 360 UNDERCOVER was able to spray into the canopy and knock out the progression of grey leaf spot from the lower canopy into the upper canopy.
On these farms, the grower, Aaron Downs, used a Hagie equipped with 360 UNDERCOVER to apply Headline Amp fungicide in Corn at VT and Priaxor in Soybeans at R2. Check strips were left within each field to study how plant health affects crop yields.

+ FOLIAR APPLICATIONS ON CORN AT VT
Water sensitive spray paper was placed within the corn canopy to evaluate (1) how far into the canopy sprayed product penetrated and (2) how much of the leaf’s surfaces the applied product covered. Spray paper was placed vertically on the stalk of the corn plant from the top to just below the ear leaf to determine penetration. Additionally two pieces of the spray paper were placed on the center of the leaf, one on the top leaf surface and one on the underside, to observe spray coverage.
Applications using three nozzle types were made: flat fan, Turbo TwinJet® and 360 UNDERCOVER® Turbo TeeJet nozzles. A total of 10 gal/A at 40 psi was applied.
