Aerial Application Industry Surveys

NAAA periodically conducts Agricultural Aviation Surveys to collect information to better identify the scope of work the U.S. agricultural aviation industry performs and the equipment, products and application techniques the industry uses. Additionally, the information gathered helps NAAA in its efforts to maintain aerial uses on a number of crop protection product labels. Having valid data has resulted in saving products for aerial use because they have pointed to less actual risk compared to EPA’s theoretical risk assumptions. Also, the data provides an excellent biographical sketch of the industry, thereby enabling NAAA to gain a firm grasp on how best to focus and prioritize programs to benefit the agricultural aviation industry.
