Complete Weed Control has announced that the company is set to make the Weed-IT technology available for councils and contractors in the UK and Ireland for the first time. The company will also be looking to appoint suitable dealers to service the requirements of their customers. Interested parties are welcome to discuss matters at this year's Saltex, stand C70.
The Weed-IT machine has been a revolution in weed control application technology, developed specifically for the control of weeds on public footpaths and similar hard surface areas in urban situations. First introduced in 1997, it was immediately awarded the accolade of 'Best New Landscape Product'. Despite this remarkable leap forward in technology, there are still huge numbers of councils and land managers employing outdated techniques that cannot be sustained.
Since then, CWC have treated hundreds of thousands of kilometres of footpaths and hard surfaces and continued to use and develop the technology. Following on from the technological advancements, new systems with higher transit speeds and greater working widths are now available.
The Weed-IT combines very accurate and rapid weed detecting technology to spot spray weeds in a highly efficient manner. With new labels for glyphosate stating the need for spot application as opposed to blanket application, the need for the system has never been more acute.
