Bio-injection system goes straight into the potato ridge

Cambridgeshire firm Standen Engineering is offering a bio-injection system for potatoes through specialist contractor and machinery manufacturer Target Set Technology. Called Side Ridge Injection (SRI), it allows bio-products, nutrients and fertiliser to be injected at 8-10bar pressures directly to the roots of growing potato plants through profiled injectors. The company says that potato cyst nematodes can be controlled by injecting a garlic-based liquid product directly into the potato ridges. The injection process is also said to disrupt nematode connections to the plant’s root system.
