month, NAAA again teamed with the Association of Equipment Manufacturers
(AEM) and several other agribusiness organizations to cohost a field day to
educate staff from the USDA, EPA and congressional offices on modern
agriculture and sustainability.
The video below shows
highlights from the day at Bunker Hill Farm in Newburg, Md., including
an aerial liquid application demonstration by Helicopter Applicators Inc.
(HAI) pilot Ben Miller from Gettysburg, Pa. Miller
sprayed water from a military surplus Bell OH-58 at a rate of 10 to 15
gallons an acre. For many of those in attendance, this was the first time they
had ever seen an aerial spray demonstration.
The video includes an interview
with NAAA Executive Director Andrew Moore as well as interviews with
representatives from AEM, John Deere, The American Seed Trade
Association and Bunker Hill Farm owner Chip Bowling.
