Zasso Brasil Electric Weeding at Quinta da Baronesa, in Bragança Paulista, São Paulo

The Zasso Brazil team, led by our commercial manager and agronomist, Emilio Garnham, presented the Capina Elétrica in Bragança Paulista at the Quinta da Baronesa condominium.

The Urban Electric Weeding equipment was operated on the condominium guides, gutters, sidewalks and cycle paths, eliminating weeds without damaging concrete and asphalt. The portable equipment IZI has been shown to be efficient in the gardens without drifting or damaging the lawn.

Quinta da Baronesa is located between Itatiba and Bragança Paulista, the condominium has a riding center, clubs, golf and a lot of care for the environment.

They already have actions such as the total preservation of green areas and enrichment of existing natural resources, own water collection, treatment and distribution station, own sewage treatment station, reuse of water for irrigation of common areas, grassy sidewalks, favoring the water infiltration into the soil, liquid and solid waste recycling, among others.

The use of Electric Weeding is one of the initiatives aimed at quality of life and the environment, the best solution for those looking for efficiency in forest without herbicides:

  • Completely free of any chemical agent.
  • Environmentally sustainable and socially responsible.
  • Up to 20x faster than other weeding methods.
  • Certified for use on organic crops.
  • Controls plants resistant to other weeding methods.
  • It does not harm the health of the population;
  • Economical
  • High power electronics use only lightning strikes to control weeds!

IZI results on Novelli Junior Stadium lawn shows the efficiency of Zasso technology

Our partner GreeLeaf, who is in charge of the Ituano Novelli Junior Stadium lawns, welcomed us for a demonstration of IZI, our Portable Electric Weeding Equipment.

See the result after 1 week of application, the preserved lawn and only the weeds chosen in the application were COMPLETELY DRY, and without making use of herbicides.

Why choose Zasso’s Electric Weeding?

Why choose Zasso’s electric weeding?

Electric weeding: disruptive mode of action.

Today, the mainstream systemic solution is chemical: glyphosate and other herbicides. Treating weeds and invasive plants with chemical products has become a significant issue because of biological resistance, regulatory constraints, and societal pressure.

“Electric weeding represents offers a revolutionary new way to control weeds and a powerful alternative to current weed control solutions.”

To overcome herbicide pollution, it is desirable to inactivate unwanted weeds by other means than poisonous substances.
Most alternative non-chemical weed control solutions are mechanical and thermal. They do not reach the reproductive biomass of the weeds which is located at the root level. These methods are therefore inefficient and costly.
 This particular problem of herbicide pollution can be solved by an electrical weeding inactivation device comprising two electrodes, whereby at least one electrode is directed to the weed.
Electric weeding represents a clear disruption in the weeding market, a change of paradigm that is not only innovative but extremely efficient and economically viable.
Electric weeding’s mode of action is best compared with that of post-emergent systemic herbicides such as glyphosate, but with the added advantage of non-resistance, no drifting, no lixiviation, and no environmental or social costs. It works right into the roots like glyphosate, but immediately and residue-free

Why Zasso?

“The leading specialist in non-chemical weed management solutions using advanced power electronics.”

 • Leadership in the electric weed control technology both in Europe and LATAM.
 • Patented, systemic technology targeting both the shoots and the even more critical roots of undesired plants systemically by employing advanced lightweight high-voltage methods.
 • Flexible, interchangeable applicators allow the system to be used in a range of surfaces and segments including:

Agriculture: burn-down and area weeding, intercept (vineyards, orchards), inter-row;
Urban areas: control on gutters, sidewalks, pathways;
Forest;
Consumer market: handheld system;

• Solution commercialized under the name of Electroherb™ and XPower by AgXtend.
• The most advanced regulation of the power being discharged to the plants, so that it remains stable and continuous independent of the impedance of the soil.
• Proven results validated by renewed commercial contracts and independent research institutes.
• The most sophisticated technologies to ensure full operational safety as well as compliance to strict Machine and EMC guidelines.

Introducing Zasso Weeding in Joinville

Introducing Zasso Weeding in Joinville

In July 2018, the Urban Electric Weeding was in demonstrations in Joinville, Santa Catarina. Introducing the technology and attesting the efficiency of the bush without herbicides to the guests.

Our commercial manager, Flavio Pellegrinelli, accompanied by our representative in the state, Anselmo Cadorin, and our partner MarBrasil, represented by Dauren Monteiro, received during the two days demos, mayors, secretaries, businessmen and others interested in Electric Weeding.

Safe for the environment and health of the population, weeding is totally free of poison! Anvisa restricts the use of herbicides in all Brazilian municipalities, which are subject to a fine. Weeding is made exclusively with electricity. A technology that controls unwanted plants with lightning strikes. It can be applied through different equipment in various environments such as urban, agricultural, forestry, domestic, among others. Safe for the environment and population health.

The electrical energy required for proper control is applied through an active electrode, which touches the leaves (aerial system) of the target plant. The electric current applied by the active electrode travels the circuit between the leaves (aerial system), roots (root system), soil and passive electrode, which may be in contact with the soil or other plants. The death of the plant occurs by the destruction of the vascular bundles (xylem and phloem) through which the sap of the plant flows. There is no residual effect or residue after application.

Guide, gutter and sidewalk cleaning operations were successful and results can already be observed at the test sites. In urban applications like this, it can be up to 20x faster than other weeding methods.
