Why Droplet Size Matters
Too Fine of a Spray Pattern Leads to Drift
Fine spray droplet size, usually less than 200 microns, are the most light, remain airborne for an extended time, and are most prone to drift. The result is application to an area not intended to be treated and field claims to damaged crop.
Too Coarse of a Spray Pattern Reduces Coverage
Too large of a droplet can either roll off the leaf or not have the coverage needed to take care of the pest.
If you don’t accurately and efficiently control the pest, you’re sacrificing the potential yield of your crops and money in your pocket.
Depends on What You're Spraying
Some pests require fine droplets while other require coarse droplets.
