    Uittreksel

    When sowing pesticide-treated seeds using pneumatic seed drills, contaminated dust particles may be abraded from the seed treatment and expelled into the
    environment. In this study, a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model was
    developed to calculate the airflow and the dust particle trajectories around
    stationary pneumatic seed drills, as a first step towards assessing dust drift
    in the field. Three machine configurations were studied: a pressurized seed
    drill and a pneumatic precision drill with and without air deflectors. Model
    results were compared to experimental data.
