Wind Shear why do i care ag/K-12

Why do I care?  Agricultural pilots deal with wind shear on a regular basis when flying planes such as crop dusters. When spraying crops, these planes tend to fly low so that the sprayed material goes in the direction and location the pilots want. Wind shear in the atmosphere is also associated with severe weather and tornadoes.
