Crop Spraying

Heli Mistral Service: you can't expect more...

Pesticides are commonly used on different types of crops to control weeds, fungal infections and pests. Those nuisances are responsible for the loss of tons of crops every year. For a farmer, those pesticides are, in most situations, the only way to keep his crops healthy. Otherwise, a disease could wipe out a whole field very quickly. Farmers are glad to know that we are a company that they can rely on if something goes wrong and fields must be sprayed in a short term delay.

Since 2010, Héli Mistral Service has improved its techniques to obtain an optimal spraying quality and increase harvest (from a study by Agri Marché) while sticking to the environmentally safe ideology of the company.

Spraying crops by helicopter provides a lot of benefits.

Compared to the tractor, the helicopter:

  • prevents soil compaction and crops from being crushed.
  • uses half of the water required for the mixing.
  • presses the product against every plant’s leaf, being helped by its downwash.
  • sprays around 100 acres per hour.
  • is noisy for a much shorter period of time.
  • does not contaminate water, air and soil as much.

Compared to the airplane, the helicopter:

  • flies slower and lower (around 5 feet over the crop).
  • offers a finishing touch more precise because it can spray closer to wires and trees.
  • sprays a higher percentage of the fields, thus providing a harvest of better quality.
  • accomplishes the job faster.
  • does not contaminate air and soil as much.
  • is not as noisy.
