    I'm doing a first spray on 2 acres that will be planted in the spring to prairie. I have some first year tree plantings that run the border on one side and would like to know a safe distance to spray. These trees are tubed and sounds like a 6-7 mph wind clipping the plantings. any thoughts? Thanks

    How high in the air is the sprayer boom going to be? Also what kind of sprayer tips?

    I wouldn't think it will drift very far if only 2 ft off the ground. What style tips you use can make a big difference. Flat fans will drift more than some others that have a bigger droplet size. You could always add a drift control agent if you were worried about it.
