History

  CHARTERED:  
April 17, 1990 with seven members. Currently 39 member companies.

  GOALS:  
Develop generic data base on premise that spray drift behavior is independent of  active ingredient.  Support current and future Part 158 registration requirements for spray drift data for member company products.

  STATUS:   
The field testing is complete.  Reports have been written and submitted to the US EPA.  EPA  has reviewed all the Task Force data and is preparing a  response for each study area. 

  INNOVATIVE APPROACH:  
By pooling the resources of the member companies, the Spray Drift Task Force, SDTF, with the cooperation and encouragement of the US EPA Office of Pesticide Programs, was able to develop a database of drift studies.  The field drift studies, when combined with evaporation data and over 2000 atomization measurements enabled the SDTF to identify and in many cases quantify the relationships between the application conditions and the magnitude of off target movement of pesticides during application.
