NRM/PESTICIDE INPUT EFFICIENCY: Using vegetative barriers to minimise spray drift on cotton farms

There are many spraying practices that can reduce potential spray drift, such as using larger droplets, lowering boom height, slowing down and spraying during appropriate weather conditions. Another practice that can greatly minimise the potential for spray drift to cause damage to sensitive areas is the establishment of vegetative barriers on the farm.

This fact sheet outlines the key considerations for growers in using vegetative barriers to minimise spray drift.
