Controlled droplet application technology for ultra low volume-oil spraying of insecticides in cotton


, : Controlled droplet application technology for ultra low volume-oil spraying of insecticides in cotton. Southwestern Entomologist (Supplement 11): 9-18

This review of the development of controlled droplet application (CDA) technology focusses on the use of these techniques for ultralow-volume (ULV) applications using vegetable, petroleum or blended oils as carriers for insecticides. Particular reference is made to the use of CDA for ULV-oil techniques in applying pesticides for cotton insect pest management.
