The stem injection of hollow cane non-native plants is recognised as the most successful and ecologically sound herbicide application method. The patented Stem Injection tool has been specifically designed for herbicide application, and successfully tried and tested over a decade. Stem injection is controlled and specific to the target species, so the treatment can be completed in all weather conditions and near water with the relevant applicator licences.

How does it work?

A small, measured dose of herbicide is injected into each cane of the Japanese Knotweed infestation. This allows the herbicide to translocate throughout the roots and rhizome of the plant. When used on healthy, vibrant plants, one correctly applied treatment is sufficient to eradicate the infestation.

In the years since Stem Injection Systems (SIS) first launched its system, stem injection has become the most reliable, fit for purpose system for contractors and ground maintenance teams on more and more tender specifications.

Stem injection of herbicide continues to establish itself as one of the most popular and effective methods of treating non-native, invasive plants, despite a backdrop of continued uncertainty over the future use of glyphosate. Stem injection has continued to enhance its reputation as a most viable treatment method.
