Pesticide Spray Drift Management in the U.S.


In this section of Syngenta Crop Protection's Stewardship Web Site, Syngenta has attempted to summarize important general information concerning drift. Due to the large amount of information on this subject, and the evolving technology of application equipment, this Web site cannot be all-inclusive or always up-to-date. We invite your suggestions and additions to Carol Somody.

Although various general spray drift management strategies are provided here, always follow local regulations and the specific directions on the product label. Drift management strategies can differ for specific combination(s) of crop, product, application technique and geographical areas.

As a basic manufacturer of crop protection products, Syngenta takes very seriously its role in including drift minimization information on its labels, which are reviewed and approved by Regulatory Authorities. The grower and applicator, however, have to take into account many factors that are site- and time-specific. Ultimately, it is the responsibility of the applicator to assess the specific situation and to minimize drift.
