An agricultural enterprise jointly owned by the Mustehsan family.
These pictures were taken when we got our 500 Acre cotton farm sprayed by Askari
Aviation company, a venture of the popular Askari group. The aircraft which sprayed
this pesticide over the cotton fields was an Austrian made ultra light. As my father
was in the United States during the September of year 2000, and I was on my summer
break, I was entrusted by my dad to manage this whole activity. I designed the runway
which is a 2,000 foot runway located in the North East part of the farm. The runway was
prepared in a record time for the ultralight as the pest attack was at the extremes and
we had to call Askari Aviation to spray the fields in an emergency as tractors could not
spray the large field in a short span. The crop was also tall enough to prevent tractors
from entering the field without destroying the cotton plants.
However, using our own water bowser, and five other tractors which were available
for me to use, while others were still spraying the fields (in case the ultra light could
not reach in time), we worked almost 50 hours in 3 days to convert an ordinary fallow
piece of land into an acceptable ultralight capable airfield.
