he quality of spread patterns in the field is determined to a large extent by the performance of the aircraft-spreader combination. Deviations from the ideal uniform application pattern can lead to " streaking " , resulting in yield loss and undesired environmental side effects (Helms et al., 1987). To ensure the quality of fertilizer application, the Cooperative Extension Service of the University of Arkansas organizes calibration workshops, where aerial applicators have their equipment tested… CONTINUE READING
