A properly equipped and operated boom sprayer is usually the most accurate way to make a broadcast application. For certain broadcast spraying situations, however, using a boom sprayer is not practical. Another option is to use a boomless sprayer, which can provide a wide spraying swath through the use of a single nozzle or a small number of nozzles without the use of a boom, according to Scott Bretthauer, University of Illinois.

Types of boomless nozzles include the XP BoomJet, the Off-Center, and the FieldJet from TeeJet; the Boom X Tender from Hypro; the Boom Buster from Diversified Fabricators, Inc.; the Boominator from UDOR U.S.A., Inc.; and the Combo-Jet from Wilger.
