Weed Wiping is an effective treatment for the control of problematic tall weeds in mown areas that do not respond to conventional treatment with selective herbicides. It uses a wiping action to apply a concentrated dose of Glyphosate to taller weeds without contacting the underlying surface.
Wiregrass is a common weed of most sport and park surfaces in South East Queensland due to its prevalent seeding and lack of an effective selective herbicide control.
Although Wiregrass is the main weed targeted by weed wiping, it can be used to gain control on areas affected by almost any weed that breaks mowing intervention heights such as Giants Rats Tail, Bahia and Crowsfoot.
Accuracy is assured through the use of a foam marking system, ensuring complete coverage and eliminating the costly wastage of product.
- Provides true selective control of problem weeds
- Computerised ‘no drip’ control ensures no off-target damage
- Foam markers ensure complete and accurate coverage
- Precise ‘terrain following’ height control prevents scalping
- 360 vision and excellent manoeuvrability makes it extremely safe
- Can be used in multiple situations such as on sport fields, parks and roadsides
Technigro recommend a dual application program for best results. This program is best applied in conjunction with a pre-emergent program as each Wiregrass plant can produce thousands of viable seeds per season.
Repeated weed wiping applications have proven to achieve con-sistent, long-term control when combined with good turf man-agement practices. For best results, at least 75mm of separation is needed between the desired turf and the seed head of the wire grass plant.
Due to the separation pre-requisite, it is recommended to contact our specialist Turf Services Team to inspect and devise a suitable program for your specific turf needs. Contact us today to see how we can help you.
