Electrothermal weeding update

By Charles Merfield

A considerable amount has happened in the electrothermal weeding space since the January 2016 FFC Bulletin article announcing the return of electrothermal from the dead.  Since then, and partly due to the previous article, a New Zealand company, Hot Grass is now importing the Ubiqutek (who are now marketing their machines under the Rootwave brand) hand held RootWave Pro weeders and providing them on a lease basis.  Please visit their websites to get updated information on their products and demonstration days in New Zealand.

The FFC has also been awarded funding by AGMARDT for an electrothermal weeding demonstration project of a tractor-mounted / field weeder, which is just getting underway.
