Leading Harvest Weed Seed Control - iHSD
Submitted by de Bruin Engineering

The iHSD (Integrated Harrington Seed Destructor) technology is a chemical-free harvest weed seed management system that is used to control weeds at harvest time. Importantly, the iHSD system is non-selective to herbicide resistant weed species, as it uses a mechanical process to devitalise weed seeds contained in the chaff fraction of the combine harvester waste. The processed chaff residue is then returned to the local field helping to retain soil moisture levels, improve nutrient levels and preserve soil micro-flora and soil fertility.

The product itself has been researched by experts for years. The latest generation of the iHSD is the culmination of 25 years of development and research. The iHSD is available to fit numerous models of John Deere, New Holland and Case IH combine harvesters.

The reason why the iHSD is popular amongst farmers worldwide is;

  • Destroys up to 99.9% of targeted weed species.

  • One pass harvest weed seed control.

  • Proven record in the commercial market.

  • Improves future weed control.

  • Helps protect your farm from weeds for future generations.   

Michael McClure an Illinois farmer stated ‘With the resistance to weeds increasing drastically here in Central Illinois, we needed and alternative form of control. We strive to leave the land in prime condition for the 10th generation of our family to farm and this was a great piece of equipment to help make weed prevention a reality.’
