    Description

    This publication provides silviculturists and managers of utility rights-of-way with a description and evaluation of available helicopter spray application equipment. Modified conventional equipment will reduce drift of sprays in normal carriers and apply various high-viscosity sprays. Specialized spray systems have found limited use in forestry; they are more commonly used on utility rights-of-way. Most of the available spray systems or spray adjuvants reduce but do not completely eliminate drift. Maximum drift reduction with present equipment and adjuvants is obtained with the Microfoil Boom.
