Mastering Weed Control: Unveiling the Power of Satusteam™ Spike Kit

Jeremy Winer

The challenge of managing invasive weeds is a daily reality for farmers, horticulturalists and landcare practitioners. Innovations in technology lead to the evolution of more effective and sustainable solutions. One such revolutionary tool in the organic weed control toolbox is the Satusteam™ Spike Kit.


Spike Kit Unveiled


The Satusteam™ Spike Kit is not your ordinary gardening tool. It represents a breakthrough in the management of bulb, corm, fibrous and tap root systems of invasive weeds that are a menace to manage organically.

This innovative kit is designed to take steam weed control and put it underground by piercing into soil in the root zone and deliver the power of Satusteam™, instantly cooking the roots and eliminating their chances of regeneration.


Taming Notorious Weeds Without Toxins 


Notorious weeds like nutgrass and onion weed have long been a headache for farmers and gardeners. These hardy invaders seem to reappear no matter how hard you try to eliminate them. However, the Satusteam™ Spike Kit offers a solution that has consistently proven successful in bringing these tenacious weeds to heel.


How the Spike Kit Works


The Satusteam™ Spike Kit is designed for simplicity and effectiveness. It comes in a kit box, of beautiful spun 316 stainless steel with components, that allow you to choose up to 8 different configurations to suit the application. ‘

Like other hand-held Weedtechnics applicator heads, it works at the end of a Weedtechnics cool-touch(C) lance. The design and materials ensures safety for the operator, durability, while allowing precise and efficient delivery of Satusteam™.


When the operator injects Satusteam™ into the soil profile the initial heat starts the cooking process of the thicker roots, bulbs, and corms, and then the residual heat retained by the soil will continue the cooking process for some time after treatment.

The Ripple Effect


The power of the Satusteam™ Spike Kit goes beyond weed control. The Satusteam heats the soil up 100C to 20cm deep. Any other life and plant roots in the treated zone will also be cooked.  This cooked organic matter will become food for soil life which will migrate into the area as soon as the temperature returns to normal.  


Independent research on effects of steam for weed control in prepared vegetable beds, showed that populations of beneficial fungi and bacteria returned within 48 hours.  The only thing that Satusteam treatment leaves in the soil is moisture and cooked organic matter.


By eliminating the roots of invasive plants, it not only prevents their resurgence but also creates a positive impact on the plants you are protecting. The treated area becomes a fertile ground for beneficial soil organisms, the minerals of the decaying weeds are released and competition for soil moisture and nutrients are removed.
