General information on drift

Drift is one of the main problems in spray technology, responsible for over 1/3 of all misplaced applications, which means that in more than 30 % of the applications farmers are wasting money.
Some basic principles can help to understand the most important factors for higher drift and its relevance for chemical applications.

The drift potential is strongly related to the droplet size of the spray. Bigger droplets can reduce the drift drastically in the same application conditions.
