Steaming on the IPM Essen 2010

Monday, January 11th, 2010

IPM is the leading fair in the area of plants, technology and floristry. In this year’s fair, new steaming technologies will be introduced.

More than 60.000 visitors will come and get the latest updates on the advantages of steaming. New innovations are expected.

MSD GmbH from Durbach, in Germany, will introduce a newly developed steaming system “A-600-12”. This machine has been co-developed with Bärtschi-Fobro, CH-Hüswil, and is specialized on the economic steaming of groomed beet cultures such as Baby-Leaf-Salads. The current version of the system has an output of 600kg per hour. 12m2 can be steamed in one work-step.

Since last year many quantity buyers require complete ragwort-free products due to big problems with ragwort in arugula cultures. Hence it is expected that the machine will meet demand in the market.
In just 5 minutes 95° hot steam kills all weeds and their seeds. The result is always a perfectly sanitized soil which is free from pathogens. For more than half a century, the positive effects of steaming have been scientifically proven.
