Summary: This presentation reports on results of the use of “Adjuvants” for improvement in the deposition of spray droplets thanks to their effect in reducing losses due to evaporation. During the tests it was observed that the products behave differently when applied through rotary atomizers than when applied using hydraulic nozzles. Field tests conducted in Argentina have confirmed that the products have a positive effect on the number of droplets collected using water sensitive cards
