Publication Series: General Technical Report (GTR)
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.
Keywords: Herbicide applications, spraying (brush control), application equipment, helicopters, silviculture
