Green on green technology ready to hit the market

Welcome to the last WeedSmart podcast of 2020! What a year it’s been.
In this episode we take a deep dive into spot spraying. We’re joined by Bilberry CEO, Guillaume Jourdain who provides us with an update on their green on green spot spraying technology. WA Farmer Andrew Messina also was part of trial work Bilberry did on this technology and he joins us to share his experience.
As this is the final 2020 podcast, we’d like to thank you – our listeners – for listening over the year. We love bringing you the latest information in the weeds space and look forward to sharing more stories with you in 2021.
On the podcast we mentioned that even though things are winding up, we do have some new content filtering through. Our latest Ask an Expert is with our Northern Extension Agronomist, Paul McIntosh. Paul answers the question: What alternatives are there for desiccation and crop topping? Check it out here.
Have a lovely break over the festive season! We’ll see you in the new year!
