    Description

    The feasibility of using aerial application as a means of managing a pear thrips infestation in maple forest stands is examined, based on existing knowledge of forest aerial application acquired from theoretical and empirical studies. Specific strategies by which aerial application should be performed and potential problem areas are discussed. Two new tools, aircraft characterization equipment and an aerial spray program mission planning computer software package are briefly described as examples of technology transfer which have been used to improve aerial applications in forests.
