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.

Certis Europe and Zasso – The electroherb enter into Development Collaboration

Certis Europe logotype - The Zasso partner

Guidelines stipulated by the legislator mean that integrated plant management for railway tracks is becoming more and more difficult. Certis, with its proven expertise in weed control on railway systems, helps to overcome all rail technical challenges.

Zasso GmbH and Certis Europe are therefore planning to launch trials this year in order to develop Zassos’ Electroherb™ Technology, which is already established in the agricultural sector, on to the rail tracks.

In cooperation with railway companies, test tracks areas have already been identified where weeds and invasive plants can be treated with the help of a Certis-modified road-rail vehicle. Initial trials in 2018 have already shown that the Zasso technology can sustainably combat a wide range of weeds right down to the roots.

Success in the state of Minas Gerais: Minas Gerais Association of Municipalities evaluates Zasso Urban Electric Weeding

A new technology has been employed to rid streets and avenues of the unwanted aspect and the problems arising from the vegetation growth in the gutters and guides of Brazilian municipalities. The tropical climate of the country favors the emergence of the bush, as it has two fundamental elements for its growth, especially at this time of year: rain and sun. With the ban on the use of chemical weeding, due to the imminent danger of its use to operators, the population and the environment and the difficulty of municipalities to allocate labor to the weeding, a revolutionary equipment that uses a clean input emerges in this scenario. and efficient to do the job: the electricity!

The Eletroherb, created by Zasso, uses an electric discharge to eliminate the bush reaching to the root, with an impressive average production of approximately 1000 meters per hour!

Desinsecta – Lagoa da Prata is the company responsible for all the commercial part of the service in Minas Gerais and is already seeking partnerships to extend operations in several regions of the state. [to be continued]
