Pesticide spray drift is affected by 4 main factors: weather conditions, spray application technique, physicochemical properties of the spray Liquid and surrounding characteristics. This research studied the importance of crop type being sprayed for drift occurrence. Drift experiments were performed over cereals, cereal stubbles and grassland according to the international standard ISO 22866. From the results it was found that drift occurrence in cereals and cereal stubbles was lower than drift occurrence in grassland. The differences between cereals and cereal stubbles were significant only at low wind speed.
