Updated April 30, 2002 - Drift management is the responsibility of everyone involved with pesticide applications.  While drift cannot be completely eliminated it can be managed.  Nozzle selection, equipment setup, and applicator attitudes are all a part of a drift reduction program.

This reference page contains materials used by ISU Extension and other organizations to educate applicators about drift and how to manage it.  There are also links to manufacturer's information and other educational resources used throughout the county.
