8332. Brosten, D. and B. Simmonds. 1990. Air booms stir the industry.. Agrichemical Age Aug/Sept 1990, p. 5, 18-19.
New sprayer technology using high air velocity and/or electrostatic charge has the potential to deliver pesticides more effectively to the target and reduce their use by 25-50%. These sprayers can often be used under much windier conditions than conventional units with minimal risk of drift. The electrostatic unit gives droplets a negative charge, and thus they are attracted and attached to the positively charged plants. Pesticide half-life may also be increased by the charge.
8917. Cutler, H.G. (ed.). 1988. Biologically active natural products: potential use in agriculture.. ACS Symposium Series 380. American Chemical Society, Washginton, D.C. 483 pp..
This technical volume highlights the biochemistry of a number of potential compounds derived from microbes, plants, or insects, that may have a role as a pesticide or plant growth regulator. Topics include screening for microbial herbicides, the role of glucosinolates, compounds from sea organisms, and chitin/chitosan products.
