Many of us have applied pesticides for many years but there are many aspects of a pesticide applicator that we do very infrequently and thus do not know all the answers. Join Tim as he goes through some aspects of regulations in a question and answer form to help remind us of some things we probably knew when we took the exam but now could use some refreshing. This web cast is very interactive as you will be asked to answer questions throughout the session using the chat box. All you need is your computer screen, speakers to hear and your keyboard to answer. Let's have some fun and discussion.

Nozzle manufacturers over the last few years have really stepped up to the plate when it comes to developing drift reducing nozzles. As pesticide applicators, we are always concerned about spray drift to off target locations, thus many applicators have chosen drift reduction nozzles to reduce the potential for spray drift. Unfortunately spray coverage may not be adequate for some pesticides with drift reduction nozzles and the pesticide may not be doing as good a job as we have hoped for. Join Tim as he looks at the topic of balancing spray drift vs. spray coverage.
