Improving the effectiveness of aerial pesticide sprays



Improving the effectiveness of aerial pesticide sprays



Journal of ASTM International JAI 2(4): JAI12166



Thirty-eight aircraft setups were submitted in order to have droplet size and drift analyses performed. Four of the eleven insecticides predicted Dv0.5s were in the 351-400 :m range. Seven of the herbicide setups had predicted Dv0.5s in the 205-250 :m range, while ten Dv0.5s were; 351 :m. Five of the ten predicted Dv0.5s were between 386 and 413 :m. Twelve different herbicides were reported as having been applied with aircraft setups that had predicted Dv0.5s between 386 and 413 :m.
