Cards of Kromekote® paper dyed with du Pont Oil Red dye commonly used in the past for field assessment of air-borne spray deposits have not been satisfactory for the more critical analysis required for ultra-Iow-volume (ULV) spraying techniques. A Kromekote paper dyed with Sudan Black BR gave good definition of droplets of malathion as small as 15 in diameter produced by ULV spray. The contrast between the spots and the surrounding surface was increased by limited exposure to sunlight or infrared heat lamps. The preparation of these cards and the relationship of the spot sizes to the true drop sizes is described, and a table of spread factors is presented.
