A method recognised as eco-friendly developed in response to the phasing in of a ban on local authority use of chemical pesticides (France's Labbé Act). Invasive vegetation is treated using a wand fitted with a cone or nozzle and a detachable ramp.
The machine's triple boiler superheats steam to produce dry steam. Exposure to dry steam causes plant cells to explode and denatures their proteins, preventing photosynthesis. A few seconds of thermal shock to the plant is enough to damage its metabolism so that it dries out within a matter of days. Find out why dry steam is the best solution.
- For large-scale weed control on roadways and public spaces.
- For fast, effective and targeted interventions in hard-to-access areas.
A compact, standalone, self-propelled machine to reach all areas requiring weed control.
1- First year of treatment: 4 treatments (depending on the type of vegetation).
2- Subsequent years: 3 treatments.
3- Need for weeding reduces over the years of treatment due to soil depletion.
4- The first treatment should be carried out after the first shoots appear (February – March).
5- A final treatment may be needed after the summer seeding period, in areas subject to airborne seed contamination. Long grass should preferably be cut prior to treatment for maximum efficacy.
6- Applying dry steam (with a very low water content) avoids inadvertent watering of seeds lying dormant in soil, and thus avoids encouraging immediate germination.
