Spray drift has been a part of the agricultural landscape since the very beginning of pesticide application through sprayers. Although our ability to contain drift has improved, current application technologies are never fully able to eliminate drift. Applicator understanding of the forces involved in delivering pesticides through a sprayer is critical for proper sprayer management in drift prone conditions.
