Weed Wiper Partnership

Weed Wipers apply herbicides directly to the plant and dramatically reduce spray drift. Glyphosate is the only licensed chemical to be used in a weed wiper, which unlike MCPA kills to the root, as well as breaking down quickly in the environment.


Farmers who used the machines in 2015 said weed wipers were easy to use and as effective as other chemical methods to control rush and other grassland weeds such as thistles.
