Fine droplets produced during agrichemical spraying are more likely to land on neighbouring farms due to movement caused by wind and other weather conditions. These agrichemicals can be damaging to neighbouring crops, leading to lower yields and economic losses. Specific additives added to the tank can reduce fine droplet formation, but suffer from damage and loss of function during the pumping process. This thesis details the development and testing of new additives, more resistant to this pumping damage.
