Factors like severe temperatures, high wind speeds, nozzles used, and small droplet size can increase drift and decrease the performance of crop protection products.

After successful completion of this course, you will be able to share with customers:

  • How drift and deposition aids improve on-target placement of pesticides
  • The benefits and types of drift and deposition aids
