Avoiding Spray Drift

BY David Schiff | June 27, 2017 - 

Badgerbean has had a close to home case of spray drift.

Sad to say, Dr. Shawn Conley reported on June 26, 2017 that one of his field trial plots was affected by an offsite movement (he suggests volatilization) of a dicamba product.

The Xtend beans in the trial showed no damage but the rest of field incurred significant damage—and the subsequent possible loss of data.

In the spirit of moving ahead, Dr. Conley thought it would be helpful to share these four resources to help understand and mitigate off- site movement.
