Drip Irrigation Technology that Works with Nature
The RootGuard® technology releases herbicide through both the pipe walls and the emitter exit hole. The herbicide is entirely independent of the water flow. This is particularly important as root intrusion occurs at the intervals between the irrigation cycles.
The released herbicide is then absorbed into the surrounding soil at very low concentrations. Additional herbicide is only released once the previous batch has naturally degraded. Only the very tip of the rootlet makes contact with the herbicide, avoiding growth into the dripper. As a result, the plant has plenty of roots free to absorb moisture and nutrients and it stays away from the dripline and develops… just as nature intended.
