Last year, wet weather gave us an abundance of logistical challenges like when to plant and how to get rid of the weeds.
Many farmers who favor mechanical cultivation were unable to combat weeds due to wet field conditions and many ended up on the short end of the stick at harvest time.
Flame weeding in row crops presents some advantages you may not have considered.
if you can drive a tractor into your fields you can control weeds with a row crop flamer.
By not cultivating you are not stirring up new weed seeds, thereby lessening the chance of more weed seeds germinating.
If you have relied on herbicides like Round Up to control weeds, and worried about rain wasting your time and money just after you've sprayed, you will be happy to know that flame weeding takes effect as you drive and if it rains just after you flamed, it's okay!
Row crop flaming effectively controls weeds between rows and in the crop row with very little effect on the crop plants.
