Core Level Module 20 - Weatherwise Application (0.5 Core credit in NYs)



Weather-wise application can reduce pesticide hazard to the environment. A good applicator carefully checks the weather conditions before beginning spray procedures. Not only do a few simple precautions protect the environment, but in terms of dollars and cents they aid the applicator. Pesticides which do not reach or remain on the target areas are wasted. More pesticide, time, and money must be used to control the pests in the target area.

Students completing this module will:

  • Learn the role that weather conditions can play in both helping and hindering the applicator.
  • Understand the hazards of windy day application and who is legally responsible for mistakes.
  • Learn the advantages of early morning or evening application.
  • Understand the roles of humidity and temperature inversion in regard to pesticide application.
