In a series of experiments the effect of sprayer set-up was assessed for spray deposit. A cross-flow fan sprayer was set-up to produce a uniform or a tree-shape liquid distribution on a vertical patternator. These distribution set-ups were used to quantify spray deposit stationary on the vertical patternator and also in a dynamic situation using a fluorescent tracer. Sprayer speeds of 0.6, 1.2 and 2.0 m/s were used.
