Edlington WeedSwiper - a non-drip weed wiper

What is a Weedswiper?

Weedswiper is a unique non-drip weed wiper for the control of tall growing weeds in arable, grassland, forestry, horticulture and amenity situations.

We've sold our weedswipers to the RSPB, Natural England, the Wildlife Trusts and the National Trust.

What Weedswiper can be used for:

Arable situations such as weed-beet in sugar beet, volunteer potatoes and oil seed rape in various crops.  For Vegetable and Salad crops you will need our Vegetable WeedSwiper.

Stewardship schemes - WeedSwiper has been used for creeping thistle and nettles in wild flower beds etc.

English Nature have used Weedswiper for silver birch re-growth, ragwort, thistles and nettles in grassland situations, etc.

Anything else?

The only criteria governing the use of our weed wiper is that the target weed species must be at least 150mm above the desired plants to ensure no damage to the underlying crop.
