Mr Tepper says growers and spray applicators must be able to identify good or bad weather conditions at a local scale and react almost immediately to start or stop applications... Together the control the amount, concentration, transport and final destination of airborne pesticides and this knowledge will help them plan and effectively execute spray applications to avoid spray drift, he says... "Micro-weather factors important to the application of pesticides over a specific target can be significantly and critically different to the broad-area conditions indicated by weather forecasts, weather maps and off-site weather observations - especially overnight and into mid-morning," Mr Tepper said...
