Half day training plus one day assessment on the safe use of stem injection equipment for giant hogweed, japanese knotweed etc, pre requisite is PA1.
In recent years there seems to have been a considerable increase in the amount of giant hogweed, Japanese knotweed and other hollow stemmed plants. Injecting concentrate pesticide in the correct dosage directly into the stem has a higher success rate than overall or spot spraying and has far quicker results in terms of control.
It is an ideal way of treating plants near to water courses due to the low risk of drift and off target contamination.
Stem injection is a simple and relatively safe process that can be carried out in small and large areas in a variety of situations such as railway embankments, golf courses, parks and many other areas to treat troublesome invasive weeds.
