Abstract

Spray deposition was measured within canopies of bracken fern (Pteridium aquilinum) and greenleaf manzanita (Arctostaphylos patula) following ground application of a spray mixture containing water a fluorescent tracer and surfactant A high proportion of spray (3538) reached the ground through manzanita canopies whereas only 113 reached the ground through a bracken canopy Spray deposition was closely linked to the quantity of foliage projected on a plane normal to the trajectory of droplets passing through the canopy Droplets that had trajectories with a significant horizontal velocity component were more effectively captured because of an increase in the quantity of foliage in their path
