Publication Troff document Understanding Air Temperature Inversions Relating to Pesticide Drift
This publication is a basic explanation of the impacts of temperature inversion on pesticide drift. It is intended to be a shorter, more concise version of AE1705-Air Temperature Inversions Causes, Characteristics and Potential Effects on Pesticide Spray Drift.
Publication Troff document Selecting Spray Nozzles to Reduce Particle Drift
This technical bulletin provides characteristics of various nozzles to enable the efficacious application of pesticides and to minimize particle movement to non-target organisms and soil.
Publication VCS/ICS calendar Agricultural Remote Sensing Basics
When farmers or ranchers observe their fields or pastures to assess their condition without physically touching them, it is a form of remote sensing. Observing the colors of leaves or the overall appearances of plants can determine the plant’s condition. Remotely sensed images taken from satellites and aircraft provide a means to assess field conditions without physically touching them from a point of view high above the field.
Publication Troff document Reducing Spray Drift
Spray drift is becoming an increasingly important part of every spraying operation. More diversification of crops, more active and non-selective herbicides, and a greater awareness of pesticides in the environment has caused spray drift management to become every applicator’s business.
Publication Strip Till for Field Crop Production
This publication explains strip till purposes, equipment options, research and applications to specific crops.
Publication Spray Equipment and Calibration
Many pesticides used to control weeds, insects, and disease in field crops, ornamentals, turf, fruits, vegetables, and rights-of-way are applied with hydraulic sprayers. Tractor- mounted, pull-type, pickup-mounted and self-propelled sprayers are available from numerous manufacturers to do all types of spraying.
Publication application/x-internet-signup Ground Application of Fungicide for the Suppression of Fusarium Head Blight in Small Grains
Fusarium head blight (FHB) has caused considerable income loss for wheat and barley growers during the past 15 years. Estimates of crop loss to growers in North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota are significant. Serious yield and quality losses from FHB occur whenever wet weather coincides with the heading and flowering stages of the crop.
