Technical Abstract: This review of pesticide application research will be discussed in two sections. First, a summary of research in the U.S. will be given, followed by a discussion of research in Ohio. There are several universities, federal laboratories and industrial locations in the U.S. where research on pesticide application is being conducted. We will review only selected research projects here, mostly related to spray drift, precision farming, whitefly control, and bio-control methods. The major effort on application technology research in Ohio is conducted in three research units. All authors are associated with the Laboratory for Pest Control Application Technology (LPCAT) with at least adjunct appointments, and work cooperatively on many projects. For discussion purposes, projects will be divided into three groups, based on the major source of funding. The groups are: LPCAT, FABE Department, and USDA-ARS, ATRU. Research projects now active and/or active in the recent past are discussed. Approximately 30 research projects in Ohio are summarized and published references listed.
