Spray drift as influenced by meteorological and technical factors

Arvidsson, Tommy; Bergström, Lars; Kreuger, Jenny


CONCLUSIONS: Under specified conditions, the present results indicate a simple relation between the total spray drift and volume fractions of droplets <= 100 mu m. Given the nozzle type, it was concluded that the most decisive factors determining TSD are wind speed and boom height. Evaluating the relative importance of the meteorological and technical factors contributes to increasing knowledge in this field of research. (C) 2011 Society of Chemical Industry
