Maizetech Ltd under leadership of John Foley has been successfully trading near Bunclody Co Wexford since 1992.
This family run business is one of Irelands leading maize seed, herbicide and film suppliers. We work closely with seed suppliers and farmers to select varieties most suited to different growing conditions. Maizetech in conjunction with Pioneer and Samco have developed a system of growing maize under photo degradable film in Ireland.
Maizetech Net Covers
The selection of a particular hybrid for cultivation inevitably varies according to the different criteria a grower has. In many situations yield is of paramount importance.
The Maizetech net cover is made from UV stable polyethylene and is placed over the plastic sheet and requires weight at the edges and joins. Maizetech Net covers are available in 20 different sizes.
The use of film allows maize to be sown 2 – 3 weeks earlier than conventional open crops. Sowing under film creates a micro climate when the plant can be challenged during the first few weeks.
