Use of FSCBG to Predict Pesticide Deposition on a Piedmont Pine Seed Orchard
Abstract:This study demonstrates the usefulness of the FSCBG aerial simulation model as a forest management tool. In general, the model closely predicted the measured deposition of bifenthrin in a pine seed orchard. An exception was the August application during which wind gusts caused the pesticide to drift further from the application area than predicted by the model. FSCBG tended to underpredict drift and evaporative losses based on the input parameters of this study. Simulations of other registered pine seed orchard pesticides demonstrated no potential environmental risk to representative aquatic organisms in surrounding ponds or waterways based on the test conditions presented.
