Abstract
Procedures are given to determine the effect of volume application on downwind drift of aerosol of 2,4-D dimethylamine salt at two application levels, to measure the downwind drift and vapour evolution from 2,4-D isooctyl ester sprayed at two ground temperatures, to determine the mmd and size range of droplets from selected spray nozzles, to determine the density and drop size of ground deposits from the sprays with each 2,4-D compound, to determine the drop size of the airborne droplet clouds and the change in droplet size with downwind distance, and to examine the distribution of 2,4-D compounds in vegetation on and downwind of the sprayed areas.
