Nineteen different commercial home and garden pesticide formulations containing fungicides from 17 manufacturers were evaluated for particle size by wet- and dry-sieve methods. Significantly different results were obtained by each method. The wet-sieved method showed that at least 90% of the particles were smaller than 75 micrometers in 17 formulations, while the dry-sieved method indicated that 70% of the particles were smaller than most appropriate for the evaluation of dusts. The mean particle size of most currently marketed commercial pesticide dusts for home and garden use is 149 micrometers or smaller.
