In a previous article, the authors summarized two ground boom sprayer datasets used for spray drift model development. One dataset contained data collected with four sprayer paths, whereas the other dataset contained data collected with only one sprayer path. Conclusions reached in the technical community regarding these datasets appear to have overlooked this critical piece of information. This technical note summarizes the two datasets on a one-on-one basis, as a way of improving the interpretation and use of these data.
