Slide 1

Climate and Application Instruments Robert E. Wolf Extension Specialist Application Technology Bio and Agricultural Engineering Robert G. Bellinger Extension Associate/Associate Professor Soils and Plant Sciences Biological and Agricultural Engineering

Slide 2

The significance of utilization time climate observing? To abstain from showering in conditions that may bring about float!!! Spotty vermin control Wasted chemicals Off-target harm More high esteem strength crops Urban sprawl and..... Less tolerant neighbors Litigious Society Result-higher expenses $$$

Slide 3

All ensured instruments are required to keep up records of governmentally limited utilize pesticide (RUP) applications. Documentation – Recordkeeping:

Slide 4

Pesticide Recordkeeping Requirements: Optional data ?????? Target pest(s) Size/thickness of nuisance Adjuvants Application strategy Aerial, ground, chemigation, fuse Special gear subtle elements Boom/spout, plane, helicopter, banding Droplet estimate, weight Reentry time/date Environmental conditions – Actual Wind speed, bearing , temperature, moistness, time what number passages?

Slide 5

Pesticide Recordkeeping Survey Pesticide Education Program - Carol Ramsay and Carrie Foss Washington State University At-Program Recordkeeping Survey – Jan.–March 2002 number of participants = 2,191 specimen estimate = 826 example is 38% of participants Post-Program Recordkeeping Survey – August 2002 overviews sent = 490 specimen estimate = 155 reaction rate is 32% of sent studies

Slide 6

How would you gauge wind speed? Hymn Ramsay and Carrie Foss – Washington State University-2002

Slide 7

What measure do you use for wind speed? Utilize words: quiet, windy, variable At Program 38% Post Program 33% In miles every hour (or feet every second) At Program 62% Post Program 67% Carol Ramsay and Carrie Foss – Washington State University-2002

Slide 8

How would you quantify wind course? Ditty Ramsay and Carrie Foss – Washington State University-2002

Slide 9

What measure do you use for wind bearing? general bearing (S, SSW, ESE, W) At Program 94% Post Program 97% compass perusing (172˚) At Program 6% Post Program 3% Carol Ramsay and Carrie Foss – Washington State University-2002

Slide 10

How would you quantify temperature? Song Ramsay and Carrie Foss – Washington State University-2002

Slide 11

Record keeping: Why am I keeping the majority of this data? Revive your memory Safety Better execution Demonstrate care and concern Stay in front of the opposition Defend yourself!

Slide 12

Weather components of concern: air development (bearing and speed) Topography, and so on temperature and moistness air dependability/reversals Courtesy – George Ramsay, Dupont

Slide 13

Wind heading: Wind course is essential Know the area of delicate territories - consider safe cradle zones. Try not to splash at any wind speed on the off chance that it is blowing towards delicate regions - all spouts can float. Shower when breeze is delicate, unfaltering, and overwhelming from touchy regions. "Dead quiet" conditions are never suggested.

Compasses: *Prices from web

Slide 16

Determining wind course: Compass Provide attractive portrayal Direction blowing from Into your face!

Slide 17

Determining wind heading: Point compass into the wind course and read in degrees.

Slide 18

What influences wind bearing: Wind streams can definitely influence splash bead statement Structures radically influence wind ebbs and flows Wind breaks Tree lines and plantations Houses and outbuildings Hills and valleys

Slide 19

Determining wind speeds: Handheld gadgets Mechanical - gliding ball, wind vane Electronic – turning turbines In-the-field stations On-the-go stations

Weather station being used:

Slide 25

Enabling innovation: GPS (Global Positioning System) Increased processing power in littler bundles Ability to exchange information to PCs

Slide 26

Aventech Research Inc. Flying machine Integrated Meteorological Measurement System –AIMMS AIMMS-10 AIMMS-20 Air stream test 2 - estimation modules CPU (20 second upgrades) Wind speed and course transmitted on-load up Used and logged PDA programming accessible for constant show of meteorological conditions.
