LPG Supply | Flame Weeding from Elgas

Supplier: Elgas Limited

LPG Supply | Flame Weeding from Elgas is a highly effective weed control technique that allows you to eliminate the use of harmful chemicals and is particularly popular with organic farmers.


Ideally suited for vegetable crops and grapevines, LPG Supply | Flame Weeding from Elgas uses a direct flame or infrared burner to produce enough heat to vapourise the water in the plant cells. This in turn destroys their ability to retain moisture and adequately photosynthesise.

Because the immediate effects aren't apparent, you can tell if the treatment has been successful by simply squeezing a treated leaf between your thumb and finger. A visible thumbprint will indicate the weed has been exposed to sufficient heat and should be dead within three days.
