Wind towers snagging cropdusters

I first saw the Iowa cropdusters in today’s New York Times video a few years ago when they had pulled into the airport at Dodge Center, Minnesota, to work the corn fields in the region.

Cropdusting is as good of an aerial show as you’ll find in rural Minnesota but it’s gotten more dangerous as cellphone towers and wind turbines sprout from the land.

Wind-energy companies are putting up meteorological towers and not marking them for cropdusters, and cropdusters are paying the price, the Times says.
