Abstract
HAZARDOUS WASTE IN THE FORM OF UNUSED PESTICIDE MIXTURES IS OF SIGNIFICANT CONCERN. RECENTLY INTRODUCED CHEMICAL INJECTION GROUND SPRAY SYSTEMS DO AN ACCURATE JOB OF APPLYING CHEMICALS. RESEARCHERS ARE NOW ADAPTING THESE TECHNOLOGIES FOR USE IN AIRCRAFT APPLICATIONS. THE EQUIPMENT PROPOSED FOR DEVELOPMENT WOULD SOLVE FOUR PROBLEMS AT ONCE WHICH ARE IMPORTANT TO AERIAL PESTICIDE APPLICATION: 1) INACCURATE CALIBRATION; 2) DISPOSAL OF LEFTOVER TANK MIX; 3) EXPOSURE OF WORKERS TO PESTICIDE CONCENTRATE; AND 4) EMERGENCY INFLIGHT DUMPING OF FLIGHT MIX.
