Crop dusting restriction effects Missouri farmers

September 25, 2001

This is Sofia Chaava from Jefferson City.

The FAA restriction on using crop dusters might cost a lot for Missouri farmers.

The temporary restriction was a safety measure in response to the September 11 terrorist attacks.

Director of Marketing at Missouri Farmers Union Kelly Smith says, last week's restriction on crop dusting operations might damage Missouri cotton fields.

Contents: Smith says although Missouri farming is not severely effected, there are some places in the state where crop dusting is necessary at this time of the year.

This time of a year is not a crop dusting season for most of the agricultural industries.

But even now it is causing much trouble to cotton farmers, since the gound applicators are powerless against the numerous insects.
