weed wand || wick wiper


Spot application: low rates of herbicides - no contamination of the soil - economic

Function: When wiping the rope wick onto weeds a systemic, non-selective herbicide (e. g. Roundup®) is absorbed by the foliage of the treated plant, penetrates the root system and kills the weed.
Wiping against two or three leafs is sufficient for one plant. The wick's shape and configuration place the herbicide directly on the target weed without damaging adjacent vegetation.

This type of herbicide application is a very cost-effective procedure: A single fill treats up to 3000 plants.
