New Ways to Predict Aerial Spray Deposition and Drift
Abstract:Computer modeling of the behavior of a spray after it is released from an aircraft is intended to reduce the inherent complexity of pesticide application. Two new models developed by the USDA Forest Service seek to predict the effects of the atmosphere and the aircraft wake on sprays, and their predictions compare favorably with field studies. The models can improve application practices and enhance public confidence in the use of chemicals and biorational agents in forestry.
