What is your challenge in keeping your cool-cell pads clean?
That’s the question we asked our Facebook audience last month. “Dust and dirt” was the leading response, followed by “algae,” “hard water,” “iron,” and “all of the above.”
We were surprised to learn, however, that growers on many farms don’t differentiate between algae, mineral build-up, or dust and dirt — all they know is that they’re struggling to keep their cool-cell pads clean, and they’ll do whatever it takes to resolve those challenges.
Too often, this leads people to utilize treatment options that are ultimately ineffective at attacking the true issue at hand.
