New Ontario Spray Drift Awareness Videos

Drift is a concern whenever a liquid is sprayed onto a crop field, whether it is a pesticide a fertilizer or other liquid.  To help growers address this, OMAFRA specialists Kristin Callow and Jason Deveau have collaborated with Crop Life Ontario have developed two entertaining yet educational videos on the causes and mitigation of spray drift, complete with rock music and professional actors.  “What is Pesticide Drift?” highlights the causes of spray drift and various factors that impact drift. “Equipment and Methods to Reduce Pesticide Drift” focuses on methods that applicators can do to reduce incidents of drift, ranging from awareness of surroundings to mechanical application equipment modifications.  The videos can be found here: www.ontario.ca/spraydrift
