Abstract/Summary Australia and New Zealand have recently implemented plans to encourage the use of drift reduction technologies. Research into the development and validation of these technologies is based on studies in wind tunnels as well as field trials. This paper reports on technologies including adjuvants designed to work with specific nozzle types, barrier vegetation designs optimised for drift interception without displacement over the vegetation top, and retrofit devices for aerial and ground sprayers.
