Weeding News

An innovative weeding technology, developed and manufactured in the UK, is now available for use in the amenities sector offering the first effective, financially viable opportunity for non-toxic, 100% natural and renewable weed control.
Weedingtech’s thermal weeding solution – Foamstream – is completely non-toxic and its use is therefore completely unrestricted. Foamstream can be used around water courses, on roads and in populated areas as it poses no danger to people, animals or the environment. It kills weeds quickly using a combination of hot water, steam and a natural foam made from 100% natural and renewable plant oils and sugars, which is applied by three hand-held lances from Weedingtech’s delivery device, ‘The AW-Series’ which is fitted to a tractor, and powered by its PTO.
The patented technology at the heart of the machine – Foamstream – employs a mix of boiling water, steam and foam, derived from natural plant oils and sugars to kill weeds. Simple but highly effective, the system is designed to treat all weed types. The steam ensures that the heat is efficiently transferred to the plant cells and the foam acts as a thermal blanket, preventing heat loss to the atmosphere. The cells of the weed are heated to the point where they rupture and the plant dies.
Designed, developed and manufactured in the UK in partnership with engineering firm Cambridge Precision Limited, the Weedingtech solution was initially launched to the agricultural sector in response to ever-increasing legislation and restrictions regarding the use of chemical herbicides. Field tests undertaken by the National Institute of Agricultural Botany have revealed a 100% success rate.
