dc.description.abstractAir-assisted spray equipment used for horticultural cropping systems depend on high air velocities to project the spray as well as to open the canopy for greater droplet penetration and deposition. However, these sprayer-types are also at a heightened risk for spray drift as they possess the potential to place drift prone droplets in the atmosphere where they can be carried to off-target locations. Unfortunately, quantifying these droplets can be difficult and expensive using samplers such as high-volume air samplers, rotating rods and strings. However, while these measuring techniques may give some idea of flux, no particle information can be gained which is imperative to predicting the mass which may be the most prone to drift. In wind-tunnels and field studies, polyester and nylon strings have proven to be an efficient collecting surface. Therefore, it was the objective of this study to assess the potential for the use of a novel, field grade Phase Doppler Interferometer (PDI) as a replacement for strings as a sampler for driftable mass for orchard type sprayers.en
