A crop-dusting pilot has been fined $750 for mistakenly spraying almost 80 teenagers with fungicide as they detassled corn near Champaign this past summer. 

The teenagers were working in a Pesotum field on July 25th when they were hit by the chemical being sprayed on an adjacent field.

The Illinois Department of Agriculture says the fine was issued by an administrative law judge.   The teens were decontaminated and treated for minor ailments, mostly irritated skin.
