Crop protection equipment - Spray deposition test for field crop - Part 1: Measurement in a horizontal plane (ISO 24253-1:2015, IDT)
ISO 24253-1:2015 specifies field measurements of spray deposition to determine the quantity and distribution of spray in a plane surface area, treated by horizontal boom sprayers with downward directed application.
ISO 24253-1:2015 allows flexibility in the arrangement of field tests, but specifies standardized measurement procedures that are useful to be able to compare the results from different field experiments or to compare with laboratory tests, such as that described in ISO 5682-2.
ISO 24253-1:2015 may not be appropriate for those spraying systems which rely on the presence of a crop canopy for efficient deposition (for example directed spraying, electrostatic charged spraying, very fine spraying, variable rate spraying).
ISO 24253 is not intended for use in or for a regulatory framework.
