Electrical Weed Control

MEPs recommend alternative solutions to glyphosate for public parks and gardens

Given “concerns about the carcinogenicity and endocrine disruptive properties of the herbicide glyphosate”, the world’s most widely used herbicide, MEPs have passed a resolution recommending to the EU Commission that “glyphosate should not be approved for use in or close to public parks, public playgrounds and public gardens.”

Ubiqutek has the solution – our professional hand-weeder.  Andrew Diprose, Executive Director of Ubiqutek, comments: “Ubiqutek Touch is a professional hand-weeder perfect for gardeners and authorities responsible for managing public parks and gardens.  It is the most effective alternative technology available as the flow of electricity systemically kills the weed, including the root, and can be used to treat all species of weed, including woody, deep-rooted or tall weeds.  Coupled with the fact that running costs are extremely low (circa. £8 of red diesel over a full working day), we believe we offer a superior and cost-effective technology. I am pleased to announce that Ubiqutek Touch is now available and that anyone interested should please contact us should they wish to know more.”
