272 Weed Species Now Resistant to Herbicides – Time to Change Tactics

The agricultural sector grapples with a stubborn adversary: weeds that shrug off herbicides. With over 530 documented cases spanning 272 species, these resilient plants have become resistant to a staggering number of herbicides. This phenomenon, impacting 100 crops across 72 countries, necessitates a drastic shift in weed control strategies.

How to deal with herbicide resitant weeds?

Weedtechnics, a trailblazer in sustainable agriculture, offers a groundbreaking solution – Satusteam™. This 100% organic approach eliminates weeds using only water, making it completely toxin-free. Unlike chemical herbicides that disrupt ecosystems and contaminate soil, Satusteam™ delivers a targeted attack, effectively managing weeds in the most prevalent crops. Wondering is Satusteam™ is same as your regular steam weeding? – Click here to find out.

Will Satusteam™ work on all herbicide resistant weeds?

Forget about weeds becoming resistant to herbicides!

Satusteam™ utilizes a revolutionary approach that works on all soft-leaved and stemmed vegetation, regardless of their herbicide history. It leverages the power of thermal shock, a principle where rapid temperature changes disrupt a plant’s cellular structure.

How does this herbicide resistant weed killer work?

Satusteam™ delivers pressurized hot water, similar to the pressure of rain, but at a precisely calibrated temperature. This intense heat disrupts the weed’s cell walls upon contact, leading to immediate destruction or significant growth retardation.manage herbicide resistant weeds

Weedtechnics’ Satusteam™: Efficient, Cost-Effective, and Eco-Conscious

Weedtechnics’ Satusteam™ technology isn’t just environmentally friendly, it’s fiscally responsible. Competitive pricing and rapid application rates make it an attractive option for farmers worldwide. While the energy consumption various across the SatusteamTm machine used, it is far more cost effective compared to the repeated regular relentless application of harmful chemical herbicides.

Here’s the key difference: Herbicides often require frequent reapplication throughout the season, Weedtechnics’ Satusteam™ can often eradicate weeds in just one to three treatments, even eliminating the roots eventually. This translates to substantial cost savings for farmers in the long run, while also minimizing the environmental impact  and avoiding the potential health risks associated with frequent herbicide use.

There’s no need to worry about spray drift of chemicals harming nearby plants or crops. Satusteam™ delivers a precise application, ensuring only targeted weeds are eliminated. And even if there is spray drift, its only water!

But the benefits go beyond immediate weed control. Satusteam™ is actually beneficial for the soil! The cooked weeds left behind become a valuable food source for microbes, promoting healthy microbial activity in the soil. This, in turn, contributes to a healthier and more resilient growing environment for your crops.
