Crop dusting in four engine Lockheed Constellation?

The story on Fox, is that an old Air Force Constellation, which had carried president Eisenhower, making it the first Air Force 1, is sitting in the boneyard at Davis Montham, hoping for someone to fix it up and make it a museum piece.  According to the news, the Air Force retired the Connie from service in the 1970's and it got sold to some enterpreneur who planned to use it for crop dusting.
  That I want to see.  The Constellation is a big four engine airliner.  The thought of swooping across a cornfield at 50 feet spraying insecticide is daunting.
