Rain-splash is an efficient physical mechanism of particle dispersal at the local (i.e., small) scale in crop canopies. The process takes place part when particles (e.g., spores) are removed by raindrops and redistributed in splash droplets produced at drop impaction. Spore dispersal can occur when large raindrops or drops falling from higher leaves (i.e., drips) strike spores or a spore suspension and produce spore-carrying splash droplets. We describe some hydrodynamics properties regarding splash droplet production and transport from different biological substrates, including wheat leaves, strawberry leaves, and corn residue, that are impacted by water drops with a range of sizes and velocities. Using data obtained from a phase doppler particle analyzer, we relate the splash process to properties of the impacting drops (e.g., kinetic energy at impact), substrate type, and condition of the substrate (e.g., species of wheat, wet or dry, infected or not).
