Pink florescent dye is added to spray solutions to evaluate pesticide drift in the field. Mylar cards spread at known distances from the spray rig to evaluate particle travel. Under a black light in the lab, even drift invisible to the naked eye can be seen and measured.&nbsp;</p> Photo: university of Nebraska-Lincoln, pesticide application technology lab 5 Ag stories: Soybean planting, pesticide labels, price expectations http://cornandsoybeandigest.com/soybeans/5-ag-stories-soybean-planting-pesticide-labels-price-expectations <div class="node-body gallery-body"><p>In the 5 ag stories to read this week, get some considerations for soybean planting and a reminder about pesticide labels.
