The use of glyphosate continues to be part of a wider debate around the use of herbicides, leading to a rise in interest towards methods of weed control without glyphosate.
Decision makers from a variety of industries across the world are banning the use of chemicals in order to create a more sustainable and environmentally friendly way of living.
With this in mind, Foamstream is the leading herbicide-free solution for controlling unwanted weeds. It’s ideal for any contractor, council or organisation looking to reduce or remove the use of herbicides from their practices and replace it with the most cost-effective and efficient alternative.
Why choosing Foamstream as a herbicide-free approach can benefit your business?
With Foamstream, fewer treatment cycles are needed in comparison to any other alternative methods of weed control. This is due to the combination of heat with a biodegradable foam which acts as a thermal blanket, retaining heat long enough - and at a high enough temperature - to kill the weed. This reduces the chance of regrowth, meaning less treatment cycles are required and less labour is used over the course of the year. As a result, overhead costs are reduced and users are able to maximise their time elsewhere.
Foamstream also sterilises surrounding seeds and spores that haven’t yet germinated, so along with reducing regrowth, Foamstream also minimises the overall weed growth in an area over time. This is a direct result of the effectiveness of Foamstream upon initial application.
By combining the most effective method, the fewest treatment cycles per year, and the ability to sterilise seeds and spores, Foamstream has the lowest cost of ownership and operating costs in the alternative herbicide-free space. Not to mention it can also be used for moss and algae control, gum and graffiti removal, urban cleaning and sanitisation.
