Pesticide Spray Drift-Reduction Technologies:
Verification and Incentives for Use
Note: EPA no longer updates this information, but it may be useful as a reference or resource.
Application of pesticide sprays that benefit agricultural production can result in the sprays being blown by wind. If exposed to the drifting spray, pesticide applicators and other people nearby could face health risks. Near and distant ecosystems wildlife may also be exposed.
Improved pesticide application equipment could reduce inadvertent pesticide residues in the environment. This Action Team works to develop and implement drift reduction technologies and strategies.
