Today, we are proud to announce that CNH Industrial, a world leading supplier to the agricultural markets, has acquired a minority stake in Zasso Group AG. This transaction, a vote of confidence on the quality and potential of our company, brings us four fundamental benefits: 1) a gain in legitimacy, 2) increased distribution capability, 3) greater funding for development and 4) a continuation of our independence. It strengthens significantly our ability to play a leading role in the transition towards a herbicide-free world.

A viable world? With social responsibility? Environmental sustainability? You are not alone! Zasso™ is working every day to propose a better world, a world free of herbicides. The future is the one we create. Find out more about what inspires us in our new Statement video.
With the use of controlled and high-powered electrical discharges, Zasso’s™ technology allows the destruction of plants to the root, with an effect that lasts longer, comparable to that obtained with conventional agrochemicals. Click here to learn more about the technology Electroherb™
Zasso™ launches the XPower XPU solution with AGXTEND, offering municipal and landscaping companies a new disruptive and efficient way of combating weeds without herbicides. As a highly effective alternative to chemical agents, the tractor-based XPU allows the systemic control of unwanted vegetation thanks to the tested XPower™ system and electrophysical technology. Such chemical-free solutions for weed control are becoming more and more important in municipal environments, in gardening and landscaping as well as for special weed control needs such as in industrial areas and on paths. The advantages of the XPower™ system, which has already been tested itself in agriculture, can be seen among other things: it is residue-free, at any time of the year and largely independent of the time of day and temperature as well as the systemic effect on the weed.

Zasso is pleased to feature in the Top 5 agtech start-ups (agricultural cycle automation) impacting the industry, out of 438 companies. Disruptive innovation is hard. It is our focus to transition as best as possible from early adopters of our solution to a broad paradigm shift where electric weeding will be accepted as the new normal. This is the challenge that drives us. Let’s keep climbing!
Successful control of invasive alien plants on hard surfaces
Very positive results from testing of “Zasso’s Electroherb™️ technology in a two-year test phase to control invasive alien plants (“IAP”) with alternative methods along roadways. The study was held in cooperation with the Austrian Institute of Technology (AIT) within the framework of the project “Control In Road”, part of the CEDR Transnational Road Research Program Call 2016.” Check the press release for further information.
The mode of action of the Electroherb’s process is based mainly on the immediate interruption of the water supply and the flow of sap from the xylem and phloem in the plants at the cellular level.
We can compare its effectiveness to that of a systemic herbicide with a broad spectrum of action, with the advantage of not presenting cases of resistance, in addition to not offering the harm that chemicals present to the health of the population and nature.
In this material, it is possible to fully check the ecotoxicological studies conducted by partners and specialized institutes, which demonstrate lower environmental and social impacts when compared to traditional alternatives.
The technology Electroherb™ is an effective, systemic, broad-spectrum, safe, environmentally sustainable, and socially responsible method of invasive plant control.
