Apple Farm Service hosts Hylio clinic


COVINGTON — Famous test pilot Chuck Yeager once said, “The sky is not the limit, it’s just the beginning.” His words ring true as agriculture continues to turn to aviation and new technology. Local equipment dealership, Apple Farm Service, has accepted this change as the area’s only dealer for Hylio Ag Spraying Drones.

Hylio Ag Spraying drones are a new tool on the farm. Headquartered and built in Texas, these drones range from 2.6 to 18 gallons and spray between 20 to 40 feet wide.

“There’s a lot to learn with these new drones,” remarked Matt Apple, VP of Apple Farm Service. “That’s why were offering a free educational clinic so you can learn about sprayer drones and the future of drone spraying.”

Apple Farm Service is excited to announce their first Hylio Educational Clinic. The clinic will be on Wednesday, March 20, 10 a.m., at their Covington location (10120 W. Versailles Road, Covington). This free clinic will focus on important topics for those who are interested in learning more about ag sprayer drones with Hylio.

“Some of these topics include where and when drone spraying makes sense, capabilities and models of the Hylio drones, and a chance for extensive Q&A about drone spraying and Hylio. We’re also giving visitors a chance to see and try the drones and software as we demo these drones on an adjacent field.”

Apple Farm Service hopes this meeting helps answer common questions such as:

-When can I legally spray?

-What requirements do I need to spray?

-What’s the differences between different drone companies & models?

-When does it makes sense to use a drone?

-How does parts and service work on drones?

-How can I make drones worth the investment?

The Hylio clinic is open to anyone interested in learning more about Hylio or agricultural sprayer drones. Those interested can RSVP at, or call the Covington store at 937-526-4851 and press 0 for the operator. Lunch is provided after the meeting, so please RSVP before March 13. Those with further questions can email the Hylio team at [email protected].
