Purdue University, the local leader in Ag Business, claims a 1.5% Soybean yield loss due to tracking using a 90 ft. boom ground sprayer.. Townsend Aviation's Aerial Spraying service will offset this loss and provide a better profit margin for your 2012 crop season.

Real World 2004 Example:
  • Aerial application pays for itself and puts more money in the grower’s pocket!
  • The photo to the right illustrates yield data on an Illinois corn field in 2004. The right side area of this photo was treated with fungicide. This treatement resulted in a net increase of $115.85 per acre.
Treated Yield 223.35 bu
Untreated Yield 169.41 bu
Difference 53.94 bu/acre

53.94 bu @$2.50 (2004 Prices) = 134.85/acre
Fungicide Application $19.00/acre (2004 Prices)
Net Increase: + $115.85/acre
