Thermal weed control
Thermal weed-control does not mean burning weeds to ash. It simply involves heating weeds to 70ºC with the flame exhaust. At this temperature plant cells burst and the plant protein is destroyed. The plant then withers and dies.
The ideal time for thermal weed control is in the early stages of growth.
With thermal weed control only the foliage of weed is destroyed. Weeds with developed roots can re-grow.
Some examples of thermal weed control equipment:
- hand-pushed equipment for public maintenance
- tractor pulled equipment for agriculture
- equipment for orchards and vineyards
All these appliances were developed by Werner Glaser c/o Glaser Engineering GmbH.
