Crop Spray Hazards

Hi. My name’s John Ortiz with BigYield.us

Today we are looking at a research plot here that was looking great all season. This is one of the reasons why anti-drift is so important and why you don’t spray in windy conditions. As you can tell the leaves are speckling from drift from a local farmer or neighbor I guess you could say who was spraying in the spring in windy conditions, and he was spraying some gramoxone and some glyphosate and not sure he used an anti-drift.

But as you can see the leaves are speckled and it’s just affected this entire plot. Drift throughout the field as you can see the field beside us was what was sprayed and it drifted over probably a good two hundred feet or three hundred feet into our corn plot. So that is why it is important to use and anti-drift and not spray when it’s really windy.

Thank you very much and have a great day.
