Droplet evaporation and spread on waxy and hairy leaves associated with type and concentration of adjuvants.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Adjuvants can improve pesticide application efficiency and effectiveness. However, quantifications of the adjuvant-amended pesticide droplet actions on foliage, which could affect application efficiencies, are largely unknown. RESULTS Droplet evaporation rates and spread on waxy or hairy leaves varied greatly with the adjuvant types tested. On… (More)
