Hot water on weeds

Landtechnik 54(3): 148-149

Hot water on weeds

Weed control in orchards and vineyards is cost intensive and time consuming. Though using herbicides is the lowest cost option, it has to be critically assessed from an ecological viewpoint. Using hot water with a driving speed of up to 6 km/h is an alternative form of weed control with high field capacity. Within the framework of a research project, a prototype was designed and used in several German orchard regions.
