Zoom Event
Mechanization for Harvesting and Cultivating Field Crops with Hermann Bruns 

Hermann Bruns of Wildflight Farm lead us through a virtual field day at his farm using his favourite equipment. This was a live 'in field' demonstration and Q & A. This virtual approach allowed us to see Hermann use his tools in action and in his own fields. 

Some equipment highlights included: basket weeder, under-cutter, potato digger and hiller.

Equipment companies mentioned by Hermann:

 

Tilmor also markets a whole line of smaller mechanized tillage equipment including basket weeders, Spyders, and finger weeders designed for use with walk-behind tractors. This scale could be more applicable to smaller growers wanting to mechanized their weed control. The basic cultivation tools are all very similar to what we use but designed to fit a walk-behind tractor.
