Archives For microwave weed control

Melbourne University’s School of Land and Environment reviews the use of microwave technology in weed management.

“Thermal runaway, if it can be induced in the plant stems, could vastly reduce treatment time for a given microwave power level, thus reducing the energy needed to treat weeds by an order of magnitude. This would make microwave weed control comparable in energy terms with conventional chemical weed treatment. “
