Determining the drift potential of Venturi nozzles compared with standard nozzles across three insecticide spray solutions in a wind tunnel
BACKGROUNDPrevious research has sought to adopt the use of drift-reducing technologies (DRTs) for use in field trials to control diamondback moth (DBM) Plutella xylostella (L.) (Lepidoptera: Plutellidae) in canola (Brassica ...
INFLUENCE OF AIRSPEED AND ADJUVANTS ON DROPLET SIZE DISTRIBUTION IN AERIAL APPLICATIONS OF GLYPHOSATE
(Amer Soc Agricultural & Biological Engineers, 2018-01-01)
Drift is one of the most hazardous consequences of an improper aerial application of glyphosate. Wind, droplet size, application height, and distance to sensitive areas are the most important factors for drift. Droplet ...
Characteristics and challenges of pesticide spray applications in Mato Grosso, Brazil
Brazil is now one of the world’s largest exporters of grains, particularly for crops such as soybean (Glycine max) and corn (Zea mays). It gained prominence in international commodities trading with large exports to several ...
SPECTRUM AND VELOCITY OF DROPLETS OF SPRAY NOZZLES WITH AND WITHOUT AIR INDUCTION
(Soc Brasil Engenharia Agricola, 2018-03-01)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the spectrum and the velocity of droplets produced by nozzles with and without air induction, under different pressures and flow rates. The experiment was conducted in a completely ...
Simulated spray drift of aminocyclopyrachlor on cantaloupe, eggplant, and cotton
Aminocyclopyrachlor (AMCP) is a herbicide with an auxin-mimic mode of action. AMCP is registered for use in the United States on right-of-way and other noncropland sites, causing concern for potential off-target spray ...
Espectro de gotas gerado por diferentes adjuvantes e pontas de pulverização
The application technology shows many parameters related to the quality of the application, one is the droplet spectrum, which is influenced by the spray nozzles and the adjuvant used. Therefore, the objective of this work ...
Absorção de Subdoses Glyphosate aplicadas em diferentes locais de plantas de eucalipto
(Sociedade de Investigações Florestais, 2014)
Assessing the deposition and canopy penetration of nozzles with different spray qualities in an oat (Avena sativa L.) canopy
(Elsevier B.V., 2016-03-01)
Consistent spray coverage that is evenly distributed throughout the canopy is necessary to control pest populations that can negatively affect yield. As applicators are switching to Coarser spray quality nozzles to reduce ...
