Do you know the ins and outs of spray drift?

Getting ready for Summer spraying

As most Australian’s minds turn to Summer holidays, farmers around the country are starting to think about Summer spraying. The work never stops for those feeding and clothing the country!

There are many factors that impact safe and effective spraying. Physical and inversion drift can move product away from a spray target and cause significant yet unintended crop damage to you and your neighbours.

The GRDC has shared this informative video that explains the factors that can cause physical and inversion drift and shares the key best management practices for you to ensure your Summer spraying is a success. We recommend you view it, and then have a look at another handy resource, our own Spray Decision Wheel.
