Thursday, April 30, 2015

Due to illness, this seminar will be rescheduled.  We’ll update when we have more information.

 

Title:

International pesticide drift reduction technology schemes and their optimized application with US EPA’s and Australia’s new approaches to drift management and modeling.

 

Abstract:

In Europe and Canada, schemes have been in place to support and encourage the use of drift reduction technologies (DRTs) for many years. The US launched its DRT scheme in early 2015 and Australia will launch its scheme later this year. The presentation will examine the different approaches taken in each country and explore the optimization of the US and Australian schemes.
