Weed control. As farmers, this is one of our biggest concerns. Whether conventional or organic, we do everything in our power to control these yield-robbing liabilities.
Some of us choose to burn weeds by flaming them, as it can be quite effective by getting low enough to the ground to literally burn the weeds, while leaving the crops unharmed.
Our agronomist, Ken Musselman, explains this technology further in the video below.
A HUGE thank-you goes out to our customer who let us film his flamer. He farms near our corporate headquarters outside Tampico, Illinois. Personally, I’ve never seen a flamer like this in action and I thought it was so neat, especially watching the weeds wilt and die right in front of my own eyes.
What method of weed management do you find the most effective?
