Pesticide applicators - Take steps to reduce drift during spraying season By WSDA

(click above for full article)

To ensure that pesticides do not drift beyond the intended treatment area, pesticide applicators must:

  • Read the label on the pesticides being applied and abide by all precautions and restrictions on safe handling, necessary protective equipment, buffers, the effect on crops and more.
  • Be especially diligent near sensitive areas such as highways, homes, schools and other occupied dwellings or where workers are present.
  • Properly calibrate equipment, using the proper nozzles and pressure to keep the spray on-target.
  • Scout the areas bordering the area being treated.
  • Evaluate conditions such as wind speed, wind direction, and temperature.
  • Halt the application if conditions change such that the risk of drift rises to an unsafe level or if anyone approaches the area without proper protection.
