Rocket launch in France
This is rocket science on a potato farm.
How do farmers deliver potatoes without sprouts 40 weeks after harvesting, while in your kitchen potatoes sprout within 1 or 2 weeks? With our fogging machines we help farmers to keep potatoes free of sprouts, to avoid weight loss and to avoid waste of food. The fog in the picture is made from orange oil. This biological product keeps potatoes free of sprouts.
For science lovers:
The dropletsize range of the fog is between 1 to 10 micrometer in diameter. 1 potato only needs 8,5 microliter of orange oil to avoid sprouting for a few weeks.
In volume: 8,5 microliter is about the size of 1 sugar grain. This 8,5 microliter is devided in roughly 1 billion dropplets by our fogging machines !
UPL invited us to test the droplet size of our machines in combination with their orange oil product Argos. The measurements have been done by an independent research team of CERTAM.
The first results confirmed what we already measured in our own test facility: Fogging is a very efficient way to help farmers to avoid food waste.
