The proper training of those who apply crop protection products is critical to the safe and efficient application of pesticides used to control pests in our environment. Wolf Consulting & Research LLC will utilize expertise to educate pesticide applicators* on the latest application technology and utilize sound research methods through applied research on new and improved application technologies to protect floricultural, nursery, landscape, turf, horticultural, and field crops against damage from diseases, insects, and weeds, while safeguarding environmental quality, food and worker safety.
Application technology is rapidly changing how crop protection products can be applied to maximize pest control efficacy while minimizing spray drift. Application companies can no longer risk not having their applicators properly trained with the latest knowledge and techniques for applying crop protection products. Making an application resulting in poor pest control or an application resulting in off-target damage will have an impact on company profits as well as the environment. This is especially true as managing resistant and hard-to-kill weeds is the critical aspect of a successful application program. Increasing use of multiple chemistries and working with more and more herbicide tolerant crops will require applicators with a high level of training.

Drift Reduction Technology Program Description:
The EPA's purpose for the Drift Reduction Technology (DRT) Program is to encourage the manufacture, marketing, and use of spray technologies scientifically verified to significantly reduce pesticide drift. Initially, the focus of the program is on spray technologies used primarily for pesticide applications to row and field crops by ground or aerial application equipment. Plans to expand this program to include technologies for orchard and vineyard crops are being considered.
