Abstract/Summary Several countries have developed or are developing drift management regulatory schemes that include options for the use of technologies and application practices for the reduction of spray drift exposure risk. These schemes aim to offer greater flexibility in application timing and options as well as encouraging best management and application practices. However, while there are a few international standards covering the validation of such technologies, significant differences and gaps still exist among them. The present paper reviews the standards and protocols that are used by the various international schemes and provides a comparison of some technologies as verified through each.
