  • 25/05/2016 08:50AM Early Easter doesn't mean it is spring! Alan Abel from Complete Weed Control gives turf managers advice following the early Easter period.With some warm sunshine during early April it seems as though spring has finally sprung. But with frost later in the month and lower than usual temperatures predicted, we cannot get sucked into ‎thinking it's time to apply selective herbicides and complete other spring type actions!With daisies that have ‘over wintered’ and dandelions popping up everywhere it is tempting to get the sprayer out. However, the uptake of the herbicide may not be successful unless perfect conditions are present. That is not only the weather conditions, but the water condition and the sprayer condition. This includes the correct nozzle selection giving the right water volume for the herbicide being applied. Also, don’t forget that if the temperature is going to drop over night after an application, then scorch is likely to take place.  The spray droplets are on or blown to the tips of the grasses or crop and when frost forms, that is what causes the scorch effect. This is a phenomenon that has been seen in many fields after early spray applications by the farming fraternity this year. Scorch will severely set-back the grass growth ‎that we are desperate to have this year, so it MUST be that a spring flush really arrives before the sprayer temptation takes hold. When Easter is early, as it was this year, Turf Managers see that as the starting gun for the season ahead, but it’s not the case. We must wait for the right conditions to prevail and patience is an important virtue.  When discussions where mooted as to the fixing of the Easter date, that would be a good thing in our industry. When the right time does come for applying selectives; then a tank mix with a soluble fertilizer should be considered to get the grass sward really moving. The pH of the water being used is so important and buffers should always be used to bring the water acidity to the correct level.  Manganese and Phosphites that are quickly available to the plant through the leaf would be worth looking for.  It must be brought to your attention that this year will be the last time that the three way mixes of phenoxys that we have been used to will be able to be applied. In 2017 we will see a big turn-around in terms of cost ‎when it comes to weed control in fine and amenity turf areas.  Complete Weed Control can give advice on all the above products and your local specialist can apply the correct product for your individual situation. You can also follow Complete Weed Control on Twitter @CWCLimited and view the company’s YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/user/completeweedcontrol1 Read More
  • 11/05/2016 13:03PM Complete Weed Control London Invests in New Equipment As business continues to rapidly increase, Simon Akerman, Complete Weed Control area manager for London South East, London Central and London North East has invested in a range of new equipment to keep operations at the highest possible standard. Simon, who has been with Complete Weed Control for over eight years, was internally promoted to the position of area manager in 2014. He started his new role with two members of staff and now has six employees working alongside him – which is testament to how far the business has come in just a couple of years. Simon also revealed that their workload is set to become even busier: “We’ve got a very busy year ahead and have just taken on Hillingdon, which is one of the biggest boroughs in London. We are now responsible for spraying four of the boroughs in London with the possibility of adding a fifth one.  “With all the work that we are taking on, we have calculated that we will double our annual turnover – which is a great achievement and is something I’m very proud of.” Many of the new contracts Simon has gained have been achieved through word of mouth from happy customers, and to continue offering the best possible service he has just purchased four new vans and three new Weed-IT machines. Weed-IT is the most advanced application equipment currently available for weed control on pavements and hard surfaces. It is a computer controlled herbicide application system consisting of a shrouded spraying head mounted on the front of a purpose built articulated carrier vehicle. Within the shrouded head are sensor units which detect the presence of weeds and trigger the appropriate spray nozzles to apply accurately the correct amount of herbicide just to those weeds and their immediate surroundings. Weed-IT not only produces exceptionally high levels of weed control but it significantly reduces herbicide usage and guarantees greater safety for the operator and the public alike. Commenting on the new equipment Simon said: “To keep taking the business forward we need to make these kinds of investments. It helps us to stay ahead of the competition and continues to project the excellent image of Complete Weed Control.” Simon’s investment in the new equipment mirrors The Complete Group’s philosophy in looking to the future and providing customer service of the highest calibre. The company has always gone that extra mile in meeting customer requirements and over the years has launched a range of new services such as Complete Ice Control, Complete Grounds Maintenance, Complete Moss Control and Complete Invasives Control. All of The Complete Group’s entities are managed at the headquarters in Newton Aycliffe, County Durham, and Simon believes that he owes a lot of his success to the team who are based there. “I’d like to add, that without the support of head office, I wouldn’t have been able to achieve what I’ve been able to. They help me with all of my invoicing, my quotations and all the administrative support you need to run a successful business.” Read More
