Description

Efficient spray application requires applying the correct amount of pesticide in a proper manner to successfully reduce the pest population. In addition pesticide should not be allowed to drift to non-target off-site plants, insects, animals, or humans. Balancing between use of a droplet size small enough for efficacious application, yet large enough to avoid off-target drift is an important consideration for most applications.

Nozzle and droplet size effects on pesticide performance and drift

In addition pesticide should not be allowed to drift to non-target off-site plants, insects, animals, or humans.
