The environmental and business case for using herbicide-free methods of weed control has never been stronger.

 

With many alternative methods available, deciding which is the most appropriate for your business can be a challenge.
The information below helps to outline the alternatives and how Foamstream compares with them.

 

Foamstream vs. hot water - how both solutions work when applied to the plant.

Foamstream typically maintains kill zone temperatures for 6x longer than other alternatives.

Testimonials

"In our first season using the Weedingtech Foamstream M1200 we have experienced similar kill rates and cycle times as glyphosate and other non-selective herbicide treatments."
Ian Boyd
General Supervisor, City of Toronto
“Turf Star-Western has great interest in offering environmentally benign solutions to grounds maintenance challenges. We believe that Weedingtech is at the leading edge of this herbicide-free movement offering a viable solution with their patented hot water and environmentally-friendly foam process, Foamstream.”
Len Gregory
Co-Owner, Turf Star-Western
“Working with Weedingtech through Jordelit has been a real eye opener; not only are they a joy to work with but Foamstream and the MW- Series product has worked brilliantly and has delivered better results for us than anything else we’ve tried in the past. Furthermore, the Weedingtech team provides excellent after-sales support. We couldn’t be without Weedingtech’s system. It’s quite clear that the treatment cycles required are far fewer than other methods like hot water and we look forward to seeing what it can continue to do for us in the future."
Mattias Hoffling
President, E-trädgård
