Executive Summary :

This research has three aspects: 1. Impact of larger drops (coming out of the reservoir tank) on a mesh fitted at the spray outlet tube for better atomisation before hitting the leaves 2. Analysis of the spread once the drop hits the leaf 3. Drying/evaporation of the drop on the leaf after the impact, leaving the stain.
