Abstract:

Good pesticide stewardship requires understanding how pesticide applications work because how we apply pesticides influences their efficacy and their impact on the environment. This article describes how pesticides are applied to a field at the most basic level – that of individual droplets from a spray cloud. By using a worked example, this article provides the basic tools needed for anyone to run through these calculations using their own products. Based on these calculations, we question the validity of common approaches used to assess the relative value of different application techniques: equipment, adjuvants, or formulations.
