The Services are to increase awareness by growers, advisers, machinery dealers and trainers (primary information providers) in the Northern and Southern grain growing regions of the factors that contribute to spray drift and the tools and techniques available to minimise the potential for spray drift to occur without significantly impacting on product efficacy by: 1) Developing and updating resources and training materials for spray drift management courses and to the GRDC to include the most current information available for spray..... Spray operators can obtain advice on minimising the risk of spray drift by consulting the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) Fact Sheet Practical tips to reduce spray drift... Resource can help growers plan for summer spraying..

A useful new resource for growers and spray operators will help them meet the technical requirements for a successful spraying program in the coming season... "Preparing a spray plan assists with nozzle selection, controller inputs and systems checks," he said... Dr Rainbow said it was also critical to check and record controller settings; use the self-test or test speed function to check the machine for leaks, restrictions and uniform output; and check the machine's output against the spray plan...

I am the principle spray operator and, like the vast majority of broad acre farmers, I regularly apply pesticides including herbicides, insecticides and fungicides to control weeds, insects and crop disease... Pesticides are widely used in agriculture to control weeds, insects and crop disease, reducing labour, energy and water requirements, and optimising potential crop yield and ultimately farm income... The overall objective of the project was to promote the adoption of the best practice spray application process by engaging key stakeholders (including government, chemical and spray applicator manufacturers, researchers, farmers and spray operators) and by applying principles from around the world on ways to simplify pesticide application whilst maximising pesticide efficacy and field efficiency, and sustaining the environment...

Spray operators can obtain advice on minimising the risk of spray drift by consulting the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) Fact Sheet Practical tips to reduce spray drift... The resource advises that the risk of spray drift increases substantially when spray equipment travels fast during higher speed winds... To reduce the amount of spray drift spray operators are advised to avoid travel speeds above 16 to 18 km/h during higher wind speeds unless there is excellent boom height control and equipment is set up to minimise airborne droplets by providing spray quality which is coarse or larger...
