Strategies for Managing Pesticide Spray Drift Webinar (with Greg Kruger)

On March 15, 2018, at 11:30am—1:00pm EST, the Environmental Protection Agency will offer a Strategies for Managing Pesticide Spray Drift Webinar. This webinar is tailored for growers, pesticide applicators, and other interested stakeholders who work with pesticides and pesticide application equipment. 

Pesticide spray drift is the movement of pesticide dust or droplets through the air at the time of application or soon after, to any site other than the area intended. Spray drift can affect people’s health, damage nearby crops, and pose a risk to non-target organisms. This webinar will focus on general strategies for reducing pesticide spray drift.

Our presenter will be Greg Kruger, PhD., Weed Science and Application Technology Specialist with the University of Nebraska at Lincoln.  Dr. Kruger is the director of the Pesticide Application Technology Lab at the University of Nebraska.  His research covers areas such as droplet size, efficacy, spray drift deposition, canopy penetration, and the influence of nozzle type and other parameters on droplet size.
