Spreader bucket accuracy

Recommended Posts

How does an aerial bucket on a line compare with a ground rig in terms of accuracy for applying dry fertilizer? The application would be on flat fields without any large variations, trying to determine if aerial application would have any real benefit over ground application. Thanks guys!

Company I used to work for did/does aerial fertilizing on commercial timber. its just like any other ag work. Fly the light bar, on,off,on,off,on,off,on,off....


Its accurate and faster than a ground rig.


On flat ground the only advantage would be speed.
