New Video Testimonial – Jake Rothert – Florida, US

We recently met Jake Rothert from Rothert Farms in Florida. He is an example of a customer that uses biorational products (organics/biologics).

This type of product is expensive and has lower toxicity, so you need a much higher dose transfer for the kill, which he has improved with MagrowTec. He is also using less conventional chemistry and reduced the spray events.

We have more and more growers using these products, especially as some conventional are getting banned.

So whether you use a tractor boom, greenhouse, backpack, air blast sprayer etc., or Bayer, BASF, Syngenta product, or Insecticide, Fungicide or Herbicide or use a John Deere, CASENH or AGCO etc or conventional chemistry, biologic, bio-stimulant or organic products, MagrowTec makes better solutions or solutions better.
