When chemicals are used, droplets are produced that can remain suspended in air and may be carried by wind away from the target area. This is known as 'spray drift'. Chemical spray drift cannot always be contained or controlled completely, despite correct application.
What are the effects of chemical drift?
When pesticides drift, they could be inhaled or land on skin or in eyes. Symptoms include eye irritation, nose irritation or runny nose, coughing or wheezing, or rash. Different pesticides affect different body systems and can cause different symptoms.
What are the different types of drift?
