Haven't heard of anyone doing two applications, although I should have maybe on some, especially canola. Though I'm not sure if that's economically feasible with these prices...Nicemustang what is the fuzz doing to the yield? Has anyone done two apps of prosario or carumba or one of each to know if it significantly reduced the fuzz?
That's the reason nobody grows that stuff here. Some guys had winter wheat over 25% infected this year. Spring wheat has been much better thanks to a dry spell in July.Too much soft white was grown around here for too long and fungicides weren't used properly.
Now we are all paying for it... this outbreak is as bad or worse than any in Manitoba.
Just curious if you decided to go through with the mobile colour sorter? A few of us are looking into doing the same thing. Would like to talk to anyone about colour sorters and especially mobile set-ups.No.
A gravity table will take out 65%
A full spectrum color sorter gets 99% or better. Monochrome about 95%
A bomill or other IR type grader will get 100%
A buddy and I are contemplating setting up a mobile color sorter to clean ergot and fuzz out of hrs durum and rye on farm.
The project would run close to the 300,000 mark and clean 30 to 50 tonne/hr depending on amount removed to give you an idea of the cost of a system .
We are using the neighbour's quick clean to get oats out of peas and it's painfully slow but ok at it... that's about all those machines are meant for
