Always consult your propane dealer about purchasing the proper tank or have them check your existing tank to make sure it is clean and safe before you begin flaming. You MUST use a propane tank equipped with a Liquid Withdrawal Valve. Do NOT use a bottom withdrawal valve as any possible debris or scale may plug torches down the line. We recommend a top-mounted, liquid withdrawal valve with a dip tube which reaches close to, but does not rest on the bottom of the tank. Clean fuel and tank are critical for optimum performance of all flaming equipment.
My wife and I have a 15 acre farm in Phoenix Arizona where we grow vegetables using organic methods. In growing organically we are very limited when it comes to weed control (we seem to grow more weeds than vegetables). I watched your videos on Row Crop equipment and was sold on the idea. Your staff was extremely helpful. I must admit I was terrified at the thought of aiming a torch at the base of my sweet corn even though I had seen it done in the videos. I think the hardest thing I have ever done was letting my foot off the clutch the first time I drove through my corn with my 2-Row Burner. But guess what?…The corn survived just fine and the weeds did not!
Row Crop Flaming FAQs
Question: What is the average fuel consumption per acre?
Answer: You can expect to use between 5 and 10 gallons per acre.
Question: How fast can I travel while flaming?
Answer: Around 3 miles per hour.
Question: How does flaming kill the weeds but not hurt the crop plant?
Answer: As long as the weeds are smaller than the crop, flaming will kill weeds without damaging the crop. The flames from the staggered torches are directed under the crop leaves and through the crop row. The flame will not affect the hearty stalks but will apply intense heat to the weed leaves and grass in the row causing damage to cell structure. This in turn destroys the photosynthesis process which kills the weeds.
Question: How many times will I have to flame?
Answer: Once or twice is common, but it varies depending upon weed pressure and field conditions.
