Everett Griner talks about the changes in the crop dusting industry making it safer in today’s Agri View.
Well, in the beginning they were known as “crop dusters”. You know what that is. A pilot who applies weed and bug killing chemicals to crops from a small airplane.
Now, in the beginning it was considered a very dangerous occupation. But technology, mostly applied to the aircraft, slowly changed all of that. The pilots became known as aerial applicators.
More and more the job is being done with drones. No pilot is required. But, there are strict regulations that do not apply to a pilot in the cockpit.
You know, FAA regulations.
That’s Agri View for today. I’m Everett Griner…
