Influence of Droplet Size on Effectiveness of Low-Volume Herbicidal Sprays

  • W. B. Ennis (a1) (a2) and Ralph E. Williamson (a3)

Abstract

Foliar applications using volumes of 100 to 500 ml per acre were used to determine the effect of droplet size on herbicide toxicity to five plant species. Several types of plant response were used to indicate effectiveness. Herbicide toxicity increased as the particle diameter decreased from 0.3 mm to 0.1 mm.
