I’m excited to report that there will be a training school in the summer of 2011 for aerial applicators that want to fly on cover crops! The planning for this meeting has been going on for some time with Dave Eby from AgriFlite Services, Inc, myself, and Dennis R. Gardisser, Ph.D, P.E. from WRK of Arkansas, LLC. At this time I am very confident that the training will end up with applicators being certified by the National Agricultural Aviation Association. Our goal is to train aerial applicators on how to apply cover crops so that producers are very satisfied with the end results.
The plan is to offer training to applicators across the Midwestern states sometime in June or July in an evening so that we can get as many applicators trained as possible. Many more details are to be ironed out but I want to let you all know that we are working on this awesome project! For more information contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
