" Date: 22.09.2010 TIPS TO MINIMISE SPRAY DRIFT.. It is also important that growers carefully select the nozzles that they intend to used and operate their sprayers to maximise efficacy while reducing the potential for spray drift... The main factors that influence efficacy and drift potential are how the machine is operated (spray quality, speed and boom height) and the weather conditions at the time of spraying...

Grain growers in the southern cropping region are being offered practical advice on the correct use of auto boom spray height control systems... The Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) has developed a Spray Height Control Fact Sheet which provides useful information on the types of auto height boom systems available, the importance of maintaining optimum height, set up considerations and calibration requirements... The Fact Sheet states that when properly adjusted, auto boom height control systems can allow the operator to focus on monitoring other machine functions, which improves spray accuracy and reduces operator fatigue...
