Modelling to determine the optimal porosity of shelterbelts for the capture of agricultural spray drift
Shelterbelts are not only useful as windbreak protection for stock and crops but can also be used to capture spray drift and reduce the spread to non-crop areas with important environmental consequences. The porosity of a shelterbelt can significantly influence the ability to capture spray drift. The aim of this work is to determine the optimal shelterbelt porosity that maximises spray drift capture. This has implications to future shelterbelt plantings and species selection. Here a model is...[Show more]
