Crop dusting or aerial application if you prefer goes back to as early as 1921 in the United States. The planes generally spray for crop protection to keep insects from damaging plants. In this photo a field of soybeans is sprayed just off of the 275 bypass north of Talladega. Photo by Bob Crisp/The Daily Home
