Spray Drift Management focuses on managing the risks associated with pesticide spray application, in particular, spray drift onto non-target areas. Designed to assist chemical users and primary industry sectors to develop spray drift management strategies, this is essential reading for landowners, spray contractors and operators, growers, government agencies and consultants.

Spray Drift Management is designed to assist chemical users develop spray drift management strategies that address the specific nature of the pest problem and the climatic and geographic characteristics of the region involved.

The comprehensive nature of the supporting information makes it a useful tool for developing education and training programs and is a useful reference for policy makers.

The Australian Commonwealth and State/Territory governments created several new Ministerial Councils from the amalgamation and redirection of the work of several existing Councils. These changes saw the winding up of ARMCANZ (and SCARM) and the establishment of a new Council, the Primary Industries Ministerial Council, its primary source of advice will flow from a committee of senior officials, the Primary Industries Standing Committee (PISC).
