Crop Dusting, Seeding and Spraying

Crop dusting is tricky and demands a highly skilled pilot. However, demand has reduced in recent years. Genetic engineering is a key element in the reduced need. Farmers are also able to produce more food from less land, particularly with modern corn varieties. Most crops are resistant to bugs, although weeds can still be a problem.

Most crop duster pilots fly fixed wing aircrafts, but there is some demand for helicopters. A modern crop duster sprays the plants and seed above the field and at high speeds. Crop duster pilots also need to be exceptionally careful not to drop a load of pesticide near homes, necessary farming machines or bodies of water.

As the demand for fertilizer, insecticide and herbicide reduces, crop duster pilots have branched out. Instead of just spraying fields of alfalfa or wheat, pilots are involved in aerial firefighting and oil spill containment. Some even use their planes for habitat restoration, such as reseeding native grasses and other plants. However, the danger of the industry has also reduced. As more farmers choose natural options and organic vegetables become more popular, pilots are less likely to be exposed to toxins.

Crop dusting is controlled entirely from the air using global positioning systems. Pilots need some basic knowledge of agriculture and to be good navigators. An alert pilot can prevent an accident and most crop dusters are older and more experienced flyers.

Crop dusters also employ ground workers. They handle equipment maintenance and fill the chemical tanks.

Although demand for this has reduced, crop dusting remains part of agricultural pest control and is also useful for other applications.

Agriculture services include spraying and dusting chemicals or seeding in a timely fashion. Pesticide, insecticide, and herbicide will need to be routinely sprayed on crops, such as wheat and corn, for proper maintenance. Grass and alfalfa will also need to be well maintained so the quality food you're giving animals is high. You can rent a plane or helicopter to spray fertilizer and control weeds, bugs, and diseases from overcoming your crops. Pyronyl crop spraying can be done for the prevention of mosquitoes in residential neighborhoods. Before hiring an agriculture spraying company, ask what type of aircraft they use and if they do proper maintenance on them so their services won't be effected by faulty equipment. Machines for seeding can also be rented. When you call different companies, ask what their process is in spraying or dusting. Some may want to go to the air first to get an aerial view of where they will be dusting, and come back later with the tanks full of pesticide or herbicide to spray on the area. Get an estimate on how much they would charge to spray chemicals on your field. It will probably be determined by how large and how often of an area you want to be sprayed. If a company you're working with doesn't have good customer service, you may want to start looking elsewhere since should you have a problem, that's where you would turn to first. You may also want to ask what type of machines and other equipment they will be using to ensure it's modern and will be effective.
