Better Weed Control.

Systemic action. Zero chemicals.

RootWave kills weeds using electricity to give better weed control whilst protecting health and helping nature restore its soils, water and biodiversity.

Designed for vineyards, orchards and bush fruit – the RootWave eWeeder kills all weeds and their roots. eWeeding generates heat within the weed and root, killing it instantly.

Why RootWave?

The most effective, economical, environmentally friendly and safe weed control on the market. eWeeding is the only non-chemical solution that kills weed and root without disturbing the soil.

We do things differently, we use waveforms that are intrinsically safer, and we use control systems that allow us to manage every joule of energy that flows through the system in real time – to produce the most effective, efficient and safest weed control available.

Better Weed Control

  • Better efficacy

    eWeeding is systemic weed control. Electricity generates heat within the weed itself, which treats deep into the roots killing the whole plant.

  • Better safety

    RootWave has patented the use of electricity to kill weeds at high frequencies, which is intrinsically safer. In fact, it’s 10,000 times less likely to cause cardiac arrest, compared to 50Hz and 2,500 less likely compared to Direct Current (DC).

  • Better afforability

    Farmers will save money on a per hectare, per season basis when using eWeeding.

  • Better flexibility

    Treat when windy, immediately before and after rain, near water courses and in environmentally sensitive areas. eWeeding means growers can plan treatment programmes to fit in with busy farm schedules and treat when best for the crop.

  • Better soils

    RootWave is friendly for micro and macrofauna including earthworms, and doesn’t disturb the soil, allowing it to heal and capture more carbon.

  • Better health

    eWeeding is chemical-free keeping the environment and food safe and free of harmful chemical residues.
