Interpretive Summary: The USDA-ARS Aerial Application Technology for Crop Production and Crop Protection group, College Station, TX, conducts scientific research on aerial application of crop production and protection materials. The group’s engineering and entomological scientists evaluate the movement of spray materials from plane to target, as well as a product’s efficacy after it deposits on the intended target. Research projects are designed to encompass all areas of aerial application technology, with particular focus on increasing application efficiency and efficacy while reducing off target movement. The group is dedicated to maintaining and improving the vital role of aerial application in American agriculture.
