Three nozzle types were compared in a trial investigating the potential for herbicide drift during aerial spraying. Water containing a colorimetric tracer, a fluorimetric tracer, and a foaming agent was sprayed from a helicopter boom along a single flight line. Deposition on steel plates located on the ground was measured to a distance of 300 m downwind. The airborne flux was measured to 225 m downwind, using "Rotorod" samplers. Conventional D8-45 nozzles were found to have greater drift… Expand
