Hi guys, this is David Yoder. We’re here at the Garden City Research Farm in Garden City, Missouri.

We’re going to show you a little video. What you are seeing is our 30 foot broadcast burner and we’re killing the germination in the weed seed right there. We are also killing our winter annuals.

We do this before we spread chicken litter but after we combine. You can see we’re getting a little bit of fire from our soybean stubble / trash that came out from behind the combine, but it doesn’t seem to hurt that too bad. We’re running about 7 mph and burning 10 to 15 gallons of propane per acre. We’re seeing a really good ROI on that. We’re seeing some really good results with weed control in the spring.

Like I said, this is David Yoder coming to you from the Garden City Research Farm. You guys have a good day.
