We often write about how valuable water sensitive paper can be to visualize and assess the coverage we’re getting from a specific application method.  A handy reference is this matrix that combines both factors.  Print it and use it in the field to compare what your application method is doing to these relative standards.  On average, you will want to see deposits similar to those in the middle of the matrix.
