When I was in high school I applied to be a "Point Man" for a crop duster. At that time you stood at the end of a field with a flag so the pilot would know where to make the next pass. I didn't get the job - no experience. In retrospect-glad I failed the employment interview.

There's also belief that the strong chemicals from crop dusters could be contributing to the killing of honey bees that help keep our food system going.

OOOps....yes, I meant by plane too...never seen it
with a helicopter. Like this series. Yep...they
don't spray with the stronger stuff that used when
I was young.

Thanks for the visit. This is the first helicopter duster that I've seen in a while. Most of the dusting is done by plane around here. I've heard of overspray causing illness. So far, I'm fine...I think.

Do they really still use those things? I recall
being in field on the farm and the crop duster
flying over and dusting field on farm next to
us right across the fence. I think they are
pointing at this as perhaps cause of Parkinson
Disease, today. I worry about that a bit.
It is low just as it was years ago. Thanks
for sharing this series. Hey, that means
you were fairly close by to this also.

About backwardguy


My wife of 40 years and I live in Hermiston OR. on a 5 acre "farmette". I have been an elementary school teacher for the last 26 years. I enjoy the outdoors and animals and I'm an avid (not a good) golfer. My wife and I take our motorcycles on long trips and our destinations are almost always the beautiful National parks in Oregon, California, Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Washington, Utah, and last summer we added Arizona to the list. Photography has long been an interest of mine and many of my photos are taken on our little farmette, and on our motorcycle trips.
