Tests show that a number of inert, porous, non-toxic powders and granulated materials provide suitable carriers for concentrated wetting agents. The application of powdered or granular forms of wetting agents by plane or helicopter appears feasible. Local applications by mechanical spreaders and hand-dusting equipment are also possible.
