McCracken - Minimizing effects of high temp, low humidity

June 18, 2014

When working with agricultural aircraft on a hot dry day I often question the logic in loading an aircraft with water knowing that a very significant  portion will never reach the crop due to evaporation losses, especially so when the product label specifies high volumes of 3-5 gals/acre.  On many occasions when I applied sun protectant I observed that the whitish cream stayed wet for many hours even though it had some water, an invert emulsion.  This observation led me to contact chemical suppliers searching for products that could be missed in the field to form a stable invert emulsion with agro-chemicals.

This short report deals with some aspects of this development and potential benefits for aerial application with emphasis on improved deposition under hot, dry conditions.

McCracken evaluates Mexican AT-402B spray pattern

Spray Patter

When most people hear the name Chihuahua, they think of the smallest breed of dog. However, Chihuahua is a state in Mexico with a colorful history of Spanish, French and American occupation. The region of Cuauhtémoc is a beautiful open plain famous for apple production and more recently the production of corn utilizing the latest technology complete with irrigation and agricultural aircraft for the control of pests and diseases. It is the third largest city of the state at an altitude of over 6400 ft MSL and is located 103 km (64 mi) west of the state capital. Most of the modern farming is conducted in various Mennonite colonies surrounding the city.

This report deals with a technical visit to calibrate an AT-402B, sold by Lane Aviation and to determine the optimum settings for the ASC Rotary Atomizers supplied by Encap-it. A number of flight tests were made to evaluate the droplet spectrum with emphasis on obtaining a narrow droplet spectrum with a minimum of very small droplets that could be lost to drift and also a minimum of large droplets that result in poor crop coverage.

TracMap Dealers

November 15, 2013

 Canadian Dealer - MICCAR Aerial, based at Yorkton, SK

In March, MICCAR purchased  TracMap to use in their Pawnee for Ag pilot training and the results speak for themselves with MICCAR now taking on the TracMap dealership. Michael Yaholnitsky from MICCAR said "I liked TracMap from when I first saw it with its simple wireless data shifting and aircraft tracking. As it turned out, our increase in crop area this year meant the Pawnee ended up doing 350 hours crop spraying, and the TracMap performed faultlessly." 

 

"We at TracMap are delighted with this new dealership as it provides us with a good presence in the center of the country."

TracMap is excited to launch our newly designed External Lightbar at the upcoming National Convention in Reno. This new design has already received positive comments with Harvey Songer from Kin-Co Ag Aviation in Beech Grove saying "It's got the two main things I need; good big numbers and four number choices".
