Effect of drift potential on drift exposure in terrestrial habitats

Effect of drift potential on drift exposure in terrestrial habitats

Nachrichtenblatt des Deutschen Pflanzenschutzdienstes 55(9): 181-188

Drift deposits were measured on plant surfaces in natural canopies and hedgerows, comparing spraying techniques with different drift potentials. Drift deposits on plants were compared with drift sediments measured on Petri dishes placed downwind on bare ground. Trials were done during 2001 and 2002 in meadows in Germany to simulate real off-crop habitats using a fluorescent tracer (sodium-fluorescein) at a rate of 50 g/ha in 200 and 380 l/ha. Canopy height was less than 20 cm.
