Mist-Control improves deposition (up to 45%), which means more active ingredient on the target, less spray movement (Fines) and reduces evaporation by approximately 30% based on field studies. Downwind fall out is reduced by 60-70%

Contains: Polyvinyl Polymer

When pesticides are used on farms and in forests, the wind can carry droplets of the sprays quite a distance away from the targeted area, potentially causing severe damage to neighbouring crops as well as harming the environment.

Spray drift has wreaked havoc on wine grapes and kiwifruit in several New Zealand orchards recently, causing several hundred thousand dollars worth of damage.

Agrichemicals can cause severe damage to natural ecosystems, especially when they end up in surface waters, as most aquatic species can be very sensitive to these chemicals.

Spray drift exposes people and animals to harmful substances from pesticides. Some health risks linked to spray drift are asthma, watery eyes and skin rashes, polluted waterways and harm to native wildlife.

In 2019 and 2020, a local Hawkes Bay company was fined $14,000 and $14,400 respectively for illegal spray drift.


Follow the checklist for both organic and conventional sprays when spraying:

  1. Landowners and contractors are both responsible for spraying safely
  2. Know the rules, such as taking extra care around boundaries or water
  3. Use an experienced operator certified GROWSAFE®
  4. Notify people and use signs where required
  5. Take care spraying near sensitive areas and buffer zones
  6. Have a property spray plan as required
  7. Watch weather conditions and adapt as needed
