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.
