When pests or disease threaten a crop, time is critical. Aerial application is often the fastest means of getting the necessary protection products to the affected crop.
For many years it was assumed that aerial spraying costs more than ground applications. That may have been true when ground spraying equipment was less sophisticated, but times have changed and research shows those old assumptions may not be valid. The advancement of spray technology and production styles have made the ground vs aerial debate more about what method is most suitable for each farm.
Hiring an Aerial Applicator means fewer tracks in the crop, and with the weight of equipment increasing dramatically over the last decade the damage is extending deeper into the soil profile. It’s pretty simple; plants grow best in soft soil and wheels work best on hard surfaces. Growing conditions for the plants are improved and nutrient efficiencies and more aggressive plant rooting are obtained by avoiding soil compaction.
