Profit margins for farming are tight, and no farmer can afford to share his crops or inputs with pests or weeds. Therefore farmers have to apply pesticides and herbicides to protect their valuable plants.
Chemical control of weeds and pests can be easy, effective and profitable if the right equipment and techniques are employed. In order to help farmers and emerging farmers to get the most out of chemical control, Aerocare Uses the state of the art Air Chemical Spraying using Aerocare jets. This assures farmers of the best coverage of paste control in the shortest time possible.
Aerocare is a specialist company in Crop Spraying covering the largest farms and areas possible. From the air, nothing is impossible.
Weeds compete with desirable plants for food and water, while insects, mites, worms and other invisible pests like fungi and microbes damage plants.
Spraying is a method used on large scale for direct control of weeds and pests. In these methods, chemicals that kill the weeds or pests are used. These chemicals are called herbicides, pesticides or insecticides. The chemical method is effective and quicker than other methods, but it can be hazardous to the environment if it is not applied strictly according to the instructions. Aerocare uses specialist personnel with serious experience in agriculture and crop management. With the specialised equipment, we can help with all forms of farming controls.
Improper use of chemicals may lead to the development of resistance among the pests, causing heavy outbreaks which lead to an increase in production costs and heavy crop losses. Aerocare Specialist help with mitigating specific dosages for invading weeds, insects, micro-bacteria, fungi, pastes etc, so as to preserve your precious land and increase on productivity.
Insecticides come in various formulations, such as dusts, wettable powders, seed dressers, emulsions and granules.
Sometimes spraying is also used to apply plant foods to be taken up through the leaves. This can also help by bypassing competing weeds to feed plants directly from the leaves.
Why Use Aircraft for Crop Spraying?
Crop spraying, aerial irrigation, aerial topdressing, or ag application – formerly also known as crop dusting – is when a specialised agricultural aircraft is used to seed or fertilise fields, or spray crops with protective products such as pesticides.
Benefits of aerial crop spraying:
The benefits of aerial crop spraying are manifold. Technology has turned aerial crop spraying into a speedy, accurate way of protecting crops from disease and pests. At Platorand Lugbespuiting / Crop Spraying we fight other disasters too which are a huge threat to crops and livestock: wildfires.
There is a common misconception that aerial crop spraying has to be unaffordable, since aircraft is involved. However, when compared to the cost of surface level pesticide and fertilisation applicators, the price of aerial irrigation is not as sky high as is generally assumed. When it comes to covering especially larger areas, crop spraying is often the more economical option. Contact us here to get a cost estimate.
When your crops are under threat from pests or disease, it is essential to spray them as quickly as possible to minimise the damage and potential losses. Aircraft can cover larger areas much faster than tractors and other surface level applicators.
Spread Pesticides, Not Pests or Disease
Unlike tractors and other methods of surface level applicators, aircraft do not trample crops or spread the pest or spores of disease, which is a risk with surface level applicators as they move through the crops.
