Aerial Agriculture & Spraying

We offer precision aerial agriculture applications of all types of aerial spraying from low volume application rates for the control of insects and fungus in crops or plantations, to high volume spraying to control grasses and woody weeds in forestry.

We can also apply all liquid fertilisers from Flexi N, minerals and trace elements to suspension fertilisers to achieve fast and economic results.

With innovative spray systems, including carbon fibre booms that are set up to give even and accurate low drift coverage and CP nozzles that can be changed in a matter of minutes for different types of application and rates. Other spraying services include spot spraying and ultra low volume spraying with the use of micronairs.

The benefits of using aerial application are listed below,

  • Fast and timely application 
  • Large areas covered in short periods of optimum weather,
  • Zero paddock or crop damage from wheel ruts,
  • Zero soil compaction,
  • Professional accurate application
  • Elimintates the transfer of weeds, diseases or pests between areas.

Typically the cost difference between ground and aerial spraying is in the range of a few dollars per hectare.  When you take into account the benefits of an aerial application, the improvements in crops yeild alone often leads to an increase in profitability per hectare in excess of $50.  This is evidenced in a recent study conducted by the Western Australian Department of Agriculture which measured the crop losses caused by ground spraying at various stages of crop development.  This research can be viewed by clicking here.
