BACKGROUND: The objective of this study was to investigate spray drift from a conventional field sprayer as influenced by meteorological and technical factors, and to provide spray operators with data on which to base sound judgements when applying pesticides. The study was conducted in grazing fields and cereal crops. RESULTS: Interpreting the results from 15 field trials under varying meteorological conditions using different boom heights and driving speeds indicates that, during normal sprayi...

Windbreaks present a porous obstacle to the approaching airflow, forcing air to flow through the windbreak at a reduced speed and accelerate over the top. In this research, windbreaks were considered as border structures to mitigate spray drift. Air flows, with an interspace between it, particles are filtered from the flow by deposition on the windbreak. Hence there is a reduction in deposition in the downwind sheltered area (the ‘quiet zone’) behind the windbreak. Peak deposition in the shelter...

The quality of agricultural sprays plays an important role in the application of plant protection products. For 13 nozzle-pressure combinations, droplet size and velocity characteristics were measured 0.50 m below the nozzle using a PDPA laser-based measurement setup. Nozzles were mounted on a transporter to sample the whole of the spray fan. The effects of nozzle type (standard, low-drift, and air-inclusion), nozzle size (ISO 02, 03, 04, and 06) and operating pressure (2.0, 3.0, and 4.0 bar) we...

Abstract Germany, England, the Netherlands and Sweden have adopted measures to reduce the pollution of surface waters by spray drift in field crops and orchards. In 2004, Belgium also adopted a drift mitigation strategy. The Belgian legislation mainly consists of a classification list of spray nozzles; air assistance and shielded systems are also considered. The nozzle list firstly is an integration of the classification work of Germany, England and the Netherlands; it uses the most stringent of...

Spray drift can be defined as the quantity of plant protection product that is carried out of the sprayed area by the action of air currents during the application process. This continues to be a major problem in applying agricultural pesticides. The purpose of this research is to measure the amount of sedimenting drift from a horizontal boom sprayer for different (drift reducing) spray application techniques under field conditions and to compare the results with the results from a reference spr...

A wind tunnel study was conducted to determine pesticide deposition on commonly used windbreak tree species used as spray drift barriers and associated exposure of honey bees. Although it has been known that windbreaks are effective in reducing chemical drift from agricultural applications, there is still an enormous information and data gap on details of the dependence of the mechanism on the biological materials of the barriers and on standardization of relevant assessment methods. Beneficial ...

The drift of fluorescent tracer in water and formulated pesticide sprays was measured at different heights and distances within 6-m-wide buffer strips (“Conservation Headlands”) and field boundaries surrounding mature winter cereal fields. Spray deposits were taken from artificial collectors. There was a diminution in deposition at the hedgerow, where a 6-m-wide buffer strip of unsprayed crop was employed between the sprayer and the hedgerow compared to where the entire crop edge was fully spray...

Abstract Terrestrial adult stages of freshwater insects may be exposed to pesticides by wind drift, over-spray, contact or feeding. However, studies addressing insecticide effects on freshwater invertebrates focus primarily on the impact of pesticides reaching the streams and potentially harming the aquatic juvenile stages. This is also reflected in the current risk assessment procedures, which do not include testing of adult freshwater insects. In order to assess the potential impact of insecti...
Agroforestry can provide ecosystem services and benefits such as soil erosion control, microclimate modification for yield enhancement, economic diversification, livestock production and well-being, and water quality protection. Through increased structural and functional diversity in agricultural landscapes, agroforestry practices can also affect ecosystem services provided by insect pollinators. A literature review was conducted to synthesize information on how temperate agroforestry systems i...
: The primary tool used currently for preventing pesticide drift from entering streams is a no-spray buffer zone. Riparian hedgerows may provide an additional option; however, quantitative information on their effectiveness is limited. To quantify the potential benefit of riparian hedgerows for drift reduction, aerial malathion {diethyl 2-[(dimethoxyphosphorothioyl)sulfanyl]butanedioate} applications on blueberry ( L.) farms with fields adjacent to streams or ditches were monitored. Drift from f...

Abstract Pesticides, in particular insecticides, can be very beneficial but have also been found to have harmful side effects on non-target insects. Butterflies play an important role in ecosystems, are well monitored and are recognised as good indicators of environmental health. The amount of information already known about butterfly ecology and the increased availability of genomes make them a very valuable model for the study of non-target effects of pesticide usage. The effects of pesticides...

Following a request from the European Food Safety Authority, the Panel on Plant Protection Products and their Residues developed an opinion on the science to support the development of a risk assessment scheme of plant (crop) protection products on non-target terrestrial plants (NTTPs). This scientific opinion is largely a literature review on the most up-to-date knowledge of factors influencing phytotoxicity testing and risk assessment of NTTPs. Specific protection goals (SPGs) were defined for...
