St. Paul, Minn. (PRWEB) June 18, 2015
Pentair announced today that it will be featured in an upcoming episode of American Farmer, airing this Fall on RFD‐TV.
Population growth creates an increased demand for agricultural output. With global food demand expected to increase 75% by the year 2050, American Farmer explores current solutions and strategies to feed this growing world.
Pentair’s Hypro brand of spray products help farm equipment manufacturers and growers meet increased demands for production with precise control of pesticides, enabling them to reduce downtime and improve productivity.
In this segment, audiences will learn how recent changes in regulations and new chemical formulations are changing the landscape of spraying. Spray nozzle selection is becoming more important than ever. Improved coverage and uniformity when applying insecticides, herbicides, fungicides, and liquid fertilizers produces higher yields and more efficient operations. Viewers will also learn about Pentair’s new ProStop‐E 12 volt actuated valve that provides instantaneous on/off control at the nozzle to decrease misapplication and waste.
“Today’s farmers have to juggle a lot between the new spraying regulations, new chemical options and their limited time and resources,” says Dave Furlong, platform director for Pentair. “Pentair’s Hypro brand of spray products works to understand the grower first and then educate them on innovative solutions that address their needs.”
“Hypro has simplified spray nozzle selection by recommending the best nozzle based on the specific chemical being applied,” said Charlie Cowan, producer for American Farmer.
