air inclusion droplet

Catalogue: GRDC 2014 Research Summaries
3) It is widely accepted that fungicide applications are generally most effective when applied with small-droplet technology, but such applications are also associated with the highest risk of spray drift... The project is about optimizing pesticide spray applications by: identifying spray technologies and spray settings with low risk of spray drift, applying pesticides in accordance with latest knowledge about pest behaviour in response to pesticides and minimizes the risk of target pests developing resistance, and by using pesticides with documented efficacy against target pests... A key nozzle technology on which we will focus is air-inducted nozzles and we will screen several popular ones first in the wind tunnel to select those that produce good control of droplet size with at least 20% air inclusions by volume...
