SPRAY DRIFT MANAGEMENT
Avoiding spray drift at the application site is the responsibility of the applicator and the grower. The interactions of many equipment and weather-related factors determine the potential for spray drift. The applicator and the grower are responsible for considering all these factors when making decisions. Aerial Applications Do not apply at wind speeds greater than 10 mph at the application site. Do not make any type of application into temperature inversions. Apply as a medium or coarser spray (ASABE Standard 572). Do not release spray at a height greater than 10 feet above the ground or crop canopy. Boom length must not exceed 75% of the wingspan or 90% of the rotor blade diameter. Aerial applicators must consider airspeed and nozzle orientation in controlling droplet size. When applications are made with a crosswind, the swath will be displaced downwind. The applicator must compensate for this downwind displacement at the downwind edge of the application area by adjusting the path of the aircraft upwind.
Do not release spray at a height greater than 4 feet above ground or crop canopy.
Direct spray into the canopy. Turn off outward-pointing nozzles when spraying row ends, and when spraying outer rows. SynerPro PBO is for use as an additive to insecticides or acaricides applied according to label directions on growing food, feed, or seed crops outdoors, or in greenhouses, or on dormant crops.
