Let’s be honest, being an Aerial Application Specialist is a unique experience. While having long days and shorts nights is the norm for most things relating to agriculture, aerial application offers some of the best office views you could ask for in an occupation. Take a moment out of your day to see what we mean.
Aerial application is often the safest, fastest, most efficient, and most economical way to get the job done.
Aircraft are able to treat wet fields and spray when crop are too thick for ground rigs. When pests or disease threaten a crop, time is critical. Aerial application can accomplish more in one hour than ground equipment can in one day. This means less fuel used, less air pollution and no soil compaction.
