Virtual Field Day: Mechanization for Harvesting and Cultivating Field Crops

Thursday, September 17, 2020

Hermann and Louise Bruns of Wild Flight Farm lead us through a virtual field day demonstrating his favourite equipment for weeding and cultivating field crops. This was a live 'in field' demonstration and Q & A. 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.
