Our Case Studies

Case Study 1

SEED POTATO GROWER CASE STUDY

This case study was conducted over an entire growing season in the northern region of the Netherlands, where the majority of Seed Potatoes are grown. The potatoes are grown for supply across international markets, sold to companies all over the world. Quality is essential to maintain the market share and leadership position. Disease tolerance in the highest class of Seed Potatoes is zero.

 


Case Study 2

WINTER WHEAT CASE STUDY

This study was conducted in June 2014 by the research institute Proeftuin Zwaagdijk, which is located 50km north of Amsterdam. The goal of the trial was to compare the control of Fusarium Head Blight in Winter Wheat between MagGrow and conventional spraying at varying dose rates.


Case Study 3

POTATO LATE BLIGHT CASE STUDY

Late blight, caused by Phytophthora infestans, is the most important disease in potato production. Under favourable conditions the pathogen can destroy the potato foliage very rapidly and cause tuber blight. To avoid infection of the foliage, fungicides are frequently sprayed onto the crop. In the Netherlands, in some years up to 15 sprays are necessary to prevent the crop from infection by the pathogen. A field experiment was conducted at the Wageningen University, Lelystad facility to evaluate the performance of the MagGrow system vs conventional spraying methods in the efficacy of fungicide spray programs in their control of potato late blight. This paper is a condensed version of the report that was completed by Wageningen University.


Case Study 4

dudutech CASE STUDY

In a trial set up on Flamingo Horticulture Naivasha farms, the MagGrow spraying apparatus was compared to Conventional apparatus as presently used on the farms. There was a marked reduction of 20% in spray volume with the use of MagGrow compared to Conventional, while no significant difference in the control of both pest and disease was recorded.

MagGrow is a pioneering, patented magnetic spraying technology system for the horticulture & arable sectors of the agricultural industry. The technology is based upon the premise of attaching magnetic inserts onto a sprayer which imparts an electromagnetic charge into the sprayed liquid. The aim of this trial was to evaluate a targeted volume reduction of 20% in the use of MagGrow Spraying Technology compared with Conventional Application Technology.
