Abstract/Contents:"Spray particle size affects both drift and efficacy of pesticides. Drift needs to be managed to acceptable levels because it may result in under or over application of chemicals and ineffective pest control. Drift may also cause losses and/or costly litigation if sensitive crops in adjacent fields are damaged, and cause unintentional contamination of foodstuffs from unacceptable pesticide residues. Drift may contribute to pollution of air and water resources, and may affect the health and safety of susceptible human and livestock populations. By obtaining maximum efficacy from the pesticide one may be able to reduce rates and/or improve performance. A laser particle anaylzer was used to determine the spray particle size and distributions of four kinds [of] nozzle tips from Spraying Systems: Extended Range (XR)11002/4/6/8, Turbo TeeJet (TT) 11002/4/6/8, Air Induction (AI) 11002/4/6/8, Turbo FloodJet (TF) 2/3/4 under various pressures. Some nozzle tips are affected more in particle size distribution by changes in pressure than others. Also, field research was conducted to measure spray drift and efficacy of nozzle tips. The air induction and turbo flood nozzles reduced drift with one of two formulations of glyphosate. In efficacy, one treatment was significantly better on weeds while another treatment was significantly lower."
