The Iowa State University Pest Management and the Environment program is looking for your help. We need ideas on how producers and commercial applicators measure wind speed prior to pesticide applications. Not everyone has wind gauges or other wind-monitoring equipment. Some of you rely upon common-sense types of observations. What do you use or how do you measure or estimate wind speed? What works for you to give an accurate estimate of wind speed if you do not have a wind gauge? If you use a gauge, which one works well and holds up season after season? Give us the details.
