DRTs for aerial application

Aerial sprayingThe NWPPA is tasked with facilitating targeted research that supports the use of practical downwind buffers and this extends to the use of DRTs in the Australian aerial application industry.

In aviation, innovation and continuous improvement are embedded deeply in the industry, as is the commitment of the Australian industry to sound research, client service and strong engagement with government regulators.

The aerial application industry is supporting current NWPPA initiatives to review current DRTs and application practices and undertaking research work at the University of Queensland that allows pilots to predict the spray quality performance of (DRT) nozzles and chemicals using nozzle calculator software.

The Aerial Agricultural Association of Australia (AAAA) provides training and tools for agronomists and growers through tailor made courses offered across the country and its website www.aerialag.com.au.
