more uniform sprinkler performance and better throw distance

“We’ve seen more uniform sprinkler performance, better throw distance from the end gun on the pivot, and better infiltration resulting in less run off.  We’re installing our second Magnation unit on another of our pivot irrigation systems now.”

The whole shebang, in Nebraska

"I am getting a much better kill on resistance weeds with less drift. This is the way my system is set up with Magnation units: 1. The first one for the fresh water, 2. another one for the mixed chemicals, 3. a final one on the sprayer. I use both aerial and ground applicators.

Having my corn or soybean seed pass through a Magnation unit has given me a noticeable increase in plant population (increase germination), emergence, and early growth.

I have seen less runoff on my rolling land irrigated with pivots equipped with a Magnation unit, along with better plant health. In effect better use of water (I am in a restricted amount of water area).

I also installed two 3” Magnation units in a commercial building that I own. We noticed a great reduction of mineral deposits in the total water system... Auto flush toilets, automatic sink faucets, drinking fountains, coffee machine (better tasting and less deposits), our cooling tower, and the sewer system.

It has been amazing.”

BETTER COVERAGE

"Better leaf coverage with our spraying."

~ Donnie Rose, Pistachio grower, Kettleman City, CA

30% less insecticides, Drift Control

I saved $9000 alone by using 30% less insecticides due to better solvency of my water, gained an extra zone due to the increase in my water flow as my pressure increased from 20 psi to 25 psi, the spray out of my wheat sprayer came out consistent the size of a pen head without any drops, the leaf yellow burn at the bottom of our peach trees towards the end of the season were reduced by 90% from last year. That's why we have the Magnation units on all of our pumps and our sprayer.

Water Penetration, Drift Control, Alfalfa

We've seen that the leaves on the alfalfa were longer. We also found that the water was penetrating 4-6 deeper on the treated acreage. Even in the pivot tracks the water penetrated better. Another noticeable difference was reduced wind drift on the treated water.

Better Distribution & Faster Absorption, Drift Control

After seeing demonstrations there really seems to be a difference of spraying with Drift Control. We see a better distribution and faster absorption of the spray liquid. This type of solution fits perfectly with the trend towards a more sustainable food production.

~ Jaap van Westeinde, Researcher at SPNA Agro Research, The Netherlands

Drift Control Saves Chemicals

"When I was first told about magnetized spraying fluid for better leaf coverage and faster absorption I didn’t believe it. But after testing it, it was all clear to me: Drift Control really works fabulously! The boom side with treated spraying fluid had 10-15 centimeters wider spraying pattern than control side of the boom. Also absorption was visible faster with Drift Control. Drift Control can save us pesticide costs and lower environmental damage."

~ Ron le Boulanger, Golf Course The International, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Faster & More Coverage

With Drift Control, I am able to cover more acres per hour with less drift. Due to high winds in Nebraska, we need to utilize every drop of water we spray. Before using Magnation, I was only able to spray 81 acres per hour going 6 mph, using 15-16 psi. Now, with Drift Control, I'm covering 105 acres per hour going 10 mph, using 45-50 psi.

Mellower Soils & Scale Reduction

We've noticed much better penetration and retention of moisture in our high pH soils resulting in healthier, mellower soils with easier harvest of our spuds; as well as significant reduction in scale in our cooling tower and much more uniform mist in our cooler using Magnation’s systems.
