1st Latest News – Special railways edition

From now on, Zasso unites its global communication to share with the public, news, projects, operations, results and much more.

In this special edition, we present the RAILWAYS project that has been developed since 2014, with great advances and promising results.

Throughout these years, we have been making partnerships with leading companies in the railway sector, both in Brazil and Europe, such as Certis Europe and RUMO, which allowed us to present the electric weeding technology as a solution for weed control.

See in question the advances of the project developed by Zasso, to ban once and for all the use of herbicides in the sector.

In Brazil the use of chemical weeding in urban centers is prohibited. Read More!

The use of herbicides and pesticides to eliminate weeds is not only a recurring problem in the countryside, but also in the city. And this action can become even more worrying and harmful to the health of the population in this case, as there will be more people who will have contact with the chemical. During chemical weed applications in cities, traffic of people, animals, wind, rain and especially intoxication of small river springs and nature spots still present on the site is not taken into consideration. The result: increased number of allergic actions and serious problems in the respiratory system of the population.

Chemical herbicide ban:

Since 2010, ANVISA (National Sanitary Surveillance Agency) has banned the use of chemical herbicides in any substance in cities and nationwide (not included in the field) for weed control.

The use of chemical herbicides in the centers, subject to imprisonment of two to four years and a fine imposed by environmental agencies, is extremely prohibited. The rule still extends to physical / online stores that offer herbicides for this purpose.

The weed solution in urban centers:

The electric weeding: which, unlike chemical weeding, does not use herbicide to kill weeds, but controlled electrical discharges, which can be applied in various environments and without harming soil, springs and the health of the population even minutes after contact with the plant.

Zasso Weeding Control:
Zasso Urban equipment is ideal for guides, gutters, sidewalks, squares, parks and highways, as well as public urban maintenance, condominiums, businesses, airports, roads, construction sites, among other effective road applications, productivity, reliability. and efficiency.

Still worth using herbicides in agriculture?

In the farmer’s daily life, one of the biggest difficulties during planting is the emergence of weeds that compete for water, minerals and other natural resources with the planting and this ends up causing damage during harvest and also financial.

Given this problem, which is present in many farmers’ daily lives, a more commonly used solution is the use of herbicides and pesticides to stop as weeds and return life to the crop. But, on the other hand, the use of herbicides causes great damage to both the farmer and damage caused by the consumption of food that had contact with herbicides.

The use of herbicides:

Pesticide herbicides may consider a single, more affordable weed solution, but they pose a major health risk, causing mainly cancer, as well as skin, throat, and airway irritation.

In addition, they are major air pollutants, groundwater and soil contaminants, especially pre-rain herbicides, which can carry all chemical water to other areas, killing land animals and an entire aquatic habitat.

And even with all this herbicide “chemical strength”, many weeds are resistant to products, resulting in long-term dependence, increased spending and more pollution to the environment.

Family farming is changing:

Increasingly the market is concerned about foods that have had some kind of contact with herbicides and their health risks, opting for foods produced by organic and sustainable agriculture. That is, besides taking up to 24 hours to take effect, does not offer a guaranteed result, with pesticide herbicides, the farmer can still lose consumers who choose an organic diet.

Currently, herbicide use is only one option, because with an electric weeding, the farmer kills weeds instantly, safely and sustainably in over 90% of the applied area.

Zasso is a company that develops weeding equipment using Electroherb technology, which effectively, productively and reliably weeding. Get more sustainability in the field with Zasso.
