Uses of Fogger Machines in Farming

The COVID-19 epidemic has set a new normal. It has altered the standards of sanitization and sanitation. For attaining this new benchmark many tried and tested systems and methods are employed. One of those tried and verified techniques is fogging. Fogging has become very prevalent in current times.

Fogging has been employed in farming for quite some time. Talking about farming is one of the most important businesses in the US with the production of whole grains, potatoes, fruits, and cash crops. To uphold and surge the yield of the farm produce, upholding the health and protection of the crops becomes the utmost priority.



Fogging is a possible method that is highly efficient in curbing pests, pathogens, and microbes (counting the coronavirus). In this method, the manure or pesticide usually in the form of fluid or solution is transformed into gas and then spread into the air. This gas when spread in the air forms a mist and hence the name, 'fogging'.

This mist destroys bacteria and pests in its path and then settles down. The primary benefit of fogging is that these fogger machines available with Fogger Machine Dealers have a wide array which is valuable for outdoor ranches and farms. They are also valuable for indoor and/or greenhouse farming where the mist reaches out to every corner. But updraft fogging comes with its drawbacks.

Many specialists regard fogging as one of the most effective and effective techniques for spraying pesticides and fertilizers. Particularly when you require to cover huge farms. Fogger machines are ideal for spraying pesticides or manures because they have already demonstrated good results.

Thermal Fogging is frequently used in farming. There are three kinds supplied by Fogger Machine Dealers founded on how the chemical fluid or solution is vaporized. Kids are:

Fuel Fogger:

It uses fuel to change fluid/solution to vapor. Fuel can be petrol or any other fuel to heat the fluid/solution.

Gas Fogger:

It uses propane gas to adapt fluid/solution to vapor. This gas warms the fluid/solution.

Electric Fogger:

It uses electricity to adapt fluid/solution to vapor. It comes with an electric cable which wants a steady electric supply.


Before you select the fogger machine, ensure that it is compatible with a particular kind of chemical fogging.

When thermal fogging is employed, the optimum temperature must be reached irrespective of the kind used. If not then the insecticide or fertilizer drips off and the mist may not be effective.


Fogging is the best option for huge farms. Furthermore, they are the best for hard-to-reach parts too. The best part of fogging out-of-doors is that you can view the mist and control its direction. Treetops and long meadows usually get ignored in other methods. Typically, the farming sector has huge ranches, farms, and barns which can be very problematic to protect from insects and microbes. To defend these efficiently, fogging is preferably used. Other approaches take more time, labor, and/or cash and hence fogging is employed.

Fogging can also be hired in warehouses/outhouses. The primary benefit of fogging is that it reaches out to matters that are usually unreachable via other methods. Fogging in granaries and barns is done for fumigation and protection against insects and pathogens.


For barns and granaries, it becomes significant to sterilize before storing the farm produce. This decontamination safeguards that the insects and pests don't flourish in the barn environment. Thus, fogging plays a significant role even in the safe storing of farm harvests.

Fogging is used in the method of humidification in glasshouses. This method is employed to decrease mold and mildew formation. Fogging is used to kill the airborne bacteria thus plummeting their growth rate.



One of the most used kinds of fogger machines for farming is the ULV (Ultra Low Volume) fogger machine. ULV fogger machines bought from Fogger Machine Dealers in India use an antimicrobial fluid solution for the abolition of microbes.

Ultra-low volume (ULV) fogging machines work by using great volumes of air at low pressure to adapt the liquid solution into droplets. ULV which stands for Ultra Low Volume forms tiny particles (1–150 μm) which are typically not visible to the naked eye.

ULV fogger machines can be used by ranch proprietors and agronomists for the application of insecticides, fertilizers, and disinfectants. They scatter these chemicals quite proficiently and effectively. Furthermore, the substances scatter quickly and reach every corner of the farm. ULV fogger machines become an inevitability in barns and granaries as they are effective in sterilizing cracks and crevices.


To protect our farming sector from damaging fungi and pests, fogging pesticides and fungicides has been proven as an operative and efficient solution. Moreover, the use of ULV fogger machines is even more valuable. Fogging is extensively used in farms, ranches, barns, and granaries because it has fewer negative effects on humans, but still has an effectual killing effect on microbes. They also cover larger parts in a short period and are the best for hard-to-reach parts.
