Weed Control Products
The new generation of professional thermic hot air blowers has been invented by RIPAGREEN®. Its process forces high velocity hot air over the leaf of a plant.
This hot air instantly causes a thermal shock that breaks the chlorophyll
producing part of the plant, the process of photosynthesis is prevented. The plant then dries naturally with a visible result after a few hours.To effectively weed with RIPAGREEN®, it is not necessary to burn the plant, but
only give it a "hot shot" (about 80 ° in the thickness of the leaf). The action is immediate, bringing a saving of time and consequent energy.The "reserves" in its roots of the plant will determine how effective the treatment
is. This treatment is therefore more effective on plants at seedling / young shoot stage.With a regular frequency of passage, the plant will be weakened until it is exhausted.
INTEGRATED PEST CONTROL
Opportunity to embrace new methods
by TurfPro Editor, Laurence Gale MSC, MBPR
A few weeks ago, I wrote an article in TurfPro on the merits of Integrated Pesticide Management and how we as turf professionals now have the opportunity to embrace a plethora of methods to control the presence of pest weeds and diseases.
In the article I talked of the many techniques now being used in the industry, and how at the recent IOG Saltex trade show I came across a new product from Ripagreen being sold by Kersten UK Ltd.
This new High Velocity Heating System designed by Ripagreen is described by the manufacturer as a quick, easy and efficient solution to controlling a wide range of weed problems.
