One of the main concerns by operators, bystandewrs, and regulators is spray drift. This talk explores the definition of spray drift, the amounts of spray coming off average applications and where it goes, and the main tools for mitigating drift in practice. These include sprayer setup (nozzles, boom height, pressure, travel speed) and weather conditions (wind speed, direction, atmospheric stability (inversions), relative humidity, temperature, and topography (trees, hills). New research results with low-drift nozzles are provided. An introduction to buffer zones, label language, and an new on-line tool for calculating buffer zones is offered.

Sprayers are actually fairly simple machines meant to apply pesticide accurately and evenly. Many applicators are reluctant to work or overhaul a sprayer as they may not work on it on a daily basis. Many mechanics are not taught about sprayers in their training and thus they are reluctant to work on them. Tim Garner will go over some simple sprayer circuits that sprayers follow depending on types of pumps. Let Tim show you that sprayers are uncomplicated and fairly easy to work with.

Unfortunately, we are seeing minute amounts of pesticides in our surface waters. One of the herbicides, 2,4-D is showing up in surface waters due to its large usage in the area of weed control. Is it having a detrimental effect on amphibians and other wildlife in an aquatic environment. This web cast seminar looks at some of the latest research on the sublethal effects of 2,4-D on amphibians and wildlife.

Technology is continually changing and GPS units are becoming part of our everyday life. GPS and weather stations can also play a big role in pest management and pesticide application. This web cast seminar looks at how pesticide applicators can use GPS and weather stations both in pest management and in pesticide applications.

As Pesticide Applicators, we are continually exposed to pesticides. Many of our pesticides may either an immediate serious effect if we contact it or may have a long term effect as a chronic exposure. With today's personal protective equipment, it is easy to limit your exposure to pesticides during mixing and loading, application and clean-up. Choosing the correct and appropriate equipment is important. This seminar looks at the equipment available, materials and features of safety equipment. Laundering of protective equipment is also discussed.
