Dramm Offers NEW Dual-Start PulsFOG
"The PulsFOG® is the fastest way to effectively treat large greenhouses with plant protection chemicals. The new K-30/20 BIO DS Dual Start PulsFOG makes starting the unit easier by offering a new Dual Start option," the Dramm team reveals
The Dual Start offers two starting mechanisms: a push-button, compressor-driven system, for easy starting when connected to a 12v battery and the manual priming ball for when no larger battery is available. The electric-start function has been available on larger units in the past and is now offered on the K-30/20 BIO. The K-30/20 BIO PulsFOG can rapidly treat areas up to 210,000 sq feet with the included 55- liter tanks.
The BIO feature uses a secondary tank for plain water and a separate set of injection nozzles. This system cools the exhaust produced by combustion before the chemical solution is injected, preventing damage to heat sensitive products. The addition of the Dual Start makes the K30/20 BIO DS easier to operate.
For BellPark Horticulture, the Cultivate is an important event and for the visitors of the show, BellPark is an important supplier to visit. With their automation solutions, they have helped many growers and now that labor is scarce, their products are of viable importance to many growers.
"Service first is how we started. Provide proper service for your customers and the sales will come. Bellpark has worked by this principle for over 20 years guided by experience and know-how in the horticulture industry since 1978," Derek McLaughlin says. For those unable to visit the show, here's their newly released company movie:

Photos, photos, photos!
Are you exhibiting or attending Cultivate'21? The HortiDaily team is looking forward to receiving your pictures. Usually, they would have been walking down the aisles to catch up with everyone to see and hear about the products and services that are being showcased. In just three days, we would usually be taking tons of pictures and gather loads of information to share in the photo report afterwards. However, this year, we cannot attend due to travel restrictions.
So, will you be visiting the show? Do not forget to take a selfie and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. And are you exhibiting? Feel free to strike a pose in front of your booth and show the product you are presenting. Like the usual photo reports, our team will mention the name of your company and the products/service you are presenting.
All in all, in this way, we hope to give everyone who cannot attend the show an impression of how it has been and what's on display.
