Depends on how heavy the dew is. If it's just light I go ahead and spray if it's a really heavy dew I wait till later in the morning or wait for another dayDouglas":367cxl9m said:Do you wait for the dew to dry?
Texas Gal":bc53btfv said:I prefer to spray in the early morning or late evening provided it's not too windy, which is the big issue for us. For instance, this morning morning at 4:30 the wind was blowing at 15 mph with gusts to 25. By the time you factor in working a full time job and weather conditions, I generally do my spraying in the late evening - the wind has usually calmed, there's no dew, and the temps are cooling off.

I guess it depends on how close your neighbors tomatoes are. :shock:

ga. prime":1ycnfamy said:The best time to spray is anytime the air is still. That's usually early or late. My opinion is that dew has a positive effect on herbicide efficacy- owing to capillary attraction. I wouldn't spray after a rain, but with dew on the leaves I wouldn't hesitate and would prefer to spray at that time rather than later.
