Growing Produce Article: 9 Ways To Get More Out of Your Farm Equipment
The article “9 Ways To Get More Out of Your Farm Equipment” is featured on GrowingProduce.com with an interview from Airtec’s CEO Tim Schaal.
We asked suppliers which questions they hear most often from vegetable growers and which mistakes they see most often.
Here’s the advice they give.
Ensure Crop Protection Reaches Pests
Vegetable growers constantly ask us how to solve a particular pest or disease issue they are having with their crops, whether it is an insect or fungus problem. The answer is always by getting better coverage. The best way to achieve better coverage is to eliminate the waste created by off target spraying, spray drift, and excess spray runoff from not penetrating the plant canopy. Using a boom allows vegetable growers to target the spray directly at their crop with air so the spray particles can penetrate the plant canopy eliminating all of the waste created by traditional high-pressure spraying. Getting the product where it is needed at the correct rates is the best way to combat pest and disease issues in vegetables.
