Aerial Application

We are aerial applicators of herbicides, fungicides, and insecticides. We also do aerial seeding when you are unable to get into your fields, and fall desiccation.

Aerial application accounts for nearly 25% of crop production application. This method is an excellent alternative for areas where a ground unit cannot operate due to wet soil conditions. At Western Canadian Aerial Ltd., we offer a variety of insecticides and fungicides that can be applied by air.

Benefits of aerial application

Timely and efficient

Not limited to soil conditions

No compaction or damage caused by ground unit tire tracks

Yield advantage

Aerial application is often the safest, fastest, most efficient and economical way to treat a crop when pests or disease threaten it.

The aerial application business is our specialty and we strive to keep our customers satisfied with a precise application that suits the needs of each producer.

Our mission is to combine the best equipment and technology with our experienced and trained staff to provide our customers with timely, reliable, and quality service.
