Higher travel speeds create the majority of issues associated with poor application.. Advisers need to be able to identify application issues and provide feedback to the operator when application technique is affecting efficacy.. I believe all advisers should provide a short report on spray results to follow-up all recommendations, which indicates if an application or control issue has been identified, and how that may be remedied and prevented in the future...

PrACTICAL TIPS TO rEDUCE SPrAy DrIfT.. Use the coarsest spray quality that will provide efficacy... If considering spraying at night, be Consider using auto-height control, suitable Other studies have shown that at night aware many product labels state: "DO the airborne fraction can be up to 5 times touch-down wheels, or lower travel speeds NOT spray under surface temperature greater than that occurring during the day to improve boom stability and to assist with inversion conditions", which have been minimising boom height...

Use the coarsest spray quality that will provide efficacy... spray during favourable weather conditions Wind speed is critical Air movement is needed to ensure that mixing occurs in the air... A Canadian study, conducted by Dr Thomas Wolf of the Saskatoon research Centre, showed that high travel speeds combined with higher wind speeds (20km/h) almost doubled the amount of chemical left in the air when compared to low travel speeds (8km/h)...
