Can drift be reduced with expensive equipment ?

, : Can drift be reduced with expensive equipment ?. Pflanzenschutz Praxis ( 2): 10-13

Spray drift, influencing factors and general ways of restricting drift are discussed. A number of different spray systems, including air-assisted sprayers, sprinklers with spreader nozzles and a Canadian system which has a closed aluminium cover over the spray boom were assessed in terms of the amount and the distance of drift which occurs. Results are presented.

When the Ulvamast drift sprayer was operated correctly, operator exposure to short-distance drift proved to be low but was marginally greater than that recorded in operations with a hydraulic sprayer. The drift potential of the Ulvamast spray over...
