Steaming at the Horticulture Day of Wädenswil University

Swiss vegetable growers are facing major challenges as no permitted herbicides for weed control are available in particular for arugula cultures.

Therefore the company MSD from Germany, one of the leading soil steaming specialists, presented the advantages of steaming for weed control at the Horticulture Day of Wädenswil University in Switzerland. Mr. Seifert, the CEO of MSD, demonstrated the effectiveness of steaming against all kinds of weeds to all of the 100 visitors. Present research results were introduced which confirm the positive effects of hot steam.

MSD was the only privately owned company which was invited by the university and its associated Agroscope-Institute to present their products and methods.
