A revolution in weed control application technology
Complete Weed Control has now firmly established WEEDit as the most advanced application equipment currently available for weed control on pavements and hard surfaces as confirmed in the independent study - Cardiff Weed Trials 2021.
WEEDit technology, exclusive to Complete Weed Control, is a computer-controlled herbicide application system specifically designed for use on footpaths and other hard surfaces. The system consists of a shrouded spraying head mounted on the front of the carrier vehicle. The shrouded head contains sensor units and spray nozzles.
The sensor units detect the presence of weeds and triggers the appropriate spray nozzles to apply accurately, the correct amount of herbicide to the weeds. This technology results in high levels of weed control, with greatly reduced herbicide input.
WEEDit, with its unique optic sensors, launched by Complete Weed Control in 1997, has become the most environmentally efficient method of weed control, with a typical herbicide reduction of up to 80%. Many local authorities have not only been able to achieve their environmental objectives of reducing glyphosate use but have seen improvements in their overall weed control programmes.
Cited as a “major advance in the field of weed control”, WEEDit uses infrared technology to intelligently detect and automatically spot-treat weeds resulting in:
- Vastly reduced (up to 80%) herbicide usage
- Minimised off-target spray drift
- Increased operator productivity
- Reduced number of complaints by the public
- Enables local authorities to meet the objectives of their environmental policies
Since its introduction, WEEDit technology has been used to treat hundreds of thousands of kilometres of street pavements nationwide whilst using only a fraction of the herbicide compared to traditional application methods. This has enabled local authorities to meet – and surpass – the objectives of their environmental and social policies.
