Figure 3 (Droplet Size): This figure shows a series of water-sensitive papers set up at 1.5 metre intervals from 1.5 metres downwind from the point of spray release to 7.5 m, inclusive. The papers demonstrate differences in spray coverage comparing a nozzle spraying with medium-sized droplets to one spraying with extremely coarse sized droplets. The resultant coverage is graphed to show that smaller droplets drift further than larger droplets.
