Keep your eyes to the sky for some changes coming this fungicide season. We are excited to announce Thompson Aero of Amana as our new partner for aerial application!
With over 80 years of combined aerial application experience, we are excited for the expertise co-owners John and Bill Thompson have to offer. “We feel very fortunate to have such a respected aerial application company in our backyard,” said Ryan Hahn, vice president of crop protection. “We are looking forward to our first season with them and we hope you are too!”
One of the biggest differences you will notice is the Ag Cat biplanes used in their fleet. Biplanes have two wings that offer more maneuverability over other plane designs. This gives the pilot the ability to fly at optimum height above the crop canopy as well make steeper entries and exits. Since fungicide products need to penetrate to the lower leaves for ultimate effectiveness, this is a huge benefit. We will also be utilizing drift and deposition products to aid in the penetration process. On top of this added maneuverability, we are especially excited about being better able to provide as-applied maps for your peace of mind.
We are confident that Thompson’s experience, reputation for quality work, and sheer proximity advantage, makes them a great partner to help serve you for success.
