Spray drift simulations to estimate the exposure of residents to pesticides close to a sprayed field

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

Abstract

Downwind deposits and airborne emissions of spray drift after a pesticide application on flower bulb fields were computed using the IDEFICS spray drift model. The simulations closely followed real spray applications that took place on selected flower bulb fields. Spray deposits on the ground down to 5 m off the downwind field edge were determined. Vertical airborne emission profiles were determined at the same distance. 14 cases were studied; the airborne emission results of these are to be used as input for a spray and vapour dispersion model.
