Aerial Crop Spraying

Huron Bay Co-operative has secured the services of Expedition Helicopters to apply fungicides and insecticides for Huron Bay Co-operative customers this coming year.

We have an opportunity to be first out with something new and unique that will result in more profit for our customers through healthier beans and corn. Also a fungicide on corn has been proven to eliminate or greatly reduce vomitoxins in corn–which can have severe consequences on the health of livestock fed grains with excess vom levels. Also if corn cutworms hit high enough thresholds to warrant an insecticide –aerial is a good option.

Climate Fieldview

Analyze your farm’s data all in one place with Climate Fieldview platform. You can start off by receiving satellite imagery, rainfall data and creating manual yield maps, even if you do not have GPS or a yield monitor. The satellite imagery gives you scouting and vegetation maps that will help you get a head start on seeing any potential issues, such as insect or crop disease. Protecting your yield puts more money in your pocket. This information is free of charge for the 2021 crop year.

To sign up you just need to have a Bayer Value number. When you are signing up for Climate Fieldview, our crop specialists can get you your Bayer Value number. All you need to get started is a device (computer, smartphone, tablet, etc) that allows you to receive emails to get your information.
