Generic Verification Protocol for Testing Pesticide Application Spray Drift Reduction Technologies for Row and Field Crops

This generic verification protocol provides a detailed method for conducting and reporting results from a verification test of pesticide application technologies for their potential reduction of spray drift. This testing approach is used to generate high-quality, peer-reviewed data for drift reduction technologies, including test design and quality assurance aspects. EPA utilizes this test protocol as part of a program to accelerate acceptance and use of improved and cost-effective application technologies which can significantly reduce spray drift and thereby provide benefits to applicators, the public, and the environment.
