This publication is an electronic download.  Reducing spray drift is vitally important because applicators are legally liable for any damage that drifting pesticide spray causes to off-target plants. This publication explains droplet size and why some droplets are more drift-prone than others. Included are tables and figures that show various nozzle sizes and designs along with the droplet size they produce at different operating pressures. By selecting the proper nozzle and operating pressure for your particular needs, you can minimize potential wind drift. By Josh A. McGinty, Paul A. Baumann, and Gaylon D. Morgan (3pp., 1 table, 2 figures)
