Droplet size distribution of a pesticide spray is recognised as a main factor affecting spray drift. As a first approximation, nozzles can be classified based on their droplet size spectrum. However, the risk of drift for a given droplet size dist...

Two techniques for measuring the size and velocity of droplets in agricultural sprays produced by hydraulic flat fan nozzles have been evaluated for their ability to produce consistent results. These were a one-dimensional phase Doppler particle a...

The present study assesses the drift potential of spinning discs using wind tunnel tests, by comparing the drift profiles of sprays from discs with those from standard fan nozzles. Drift from fan nozzles was used as a reference, and comparison tes...

The results of the tests showed the superiority of windbreaks of a lattice structure (e.g., metal hurdles and particularly coconut-matting) over solid constructions. The latter should be somewhat raised above the soil surface, thereby reducing the...

The principles and uses of a new laser-based high-speed imaging system that utilizes an infrared laser and a high-speed digital camera are described. Drop sizing and statistical corrections are achieved through software. Measurements of droplet si...

The effects were investigated of intermittent flow control on droplet size spectra from fan nozzles operating in air streams similar to air-carrier and aircraft sprayers. Droplet size spectra were slightly affected by flow control over a 4:1 range...
