Economical weed control system manufactured in the USA

GrassWorks Weed Wiper has models available for row crop farmers. In addition to our high lift model, we have the flex model. Our tractor mount units with the high lift and the flex model will work great for weed control in wheat, sorghum/sudan, millet, soybeans, cotton, rice and peanut producers. The high lift comes with a ridged tool bar allowing extra height for your row crop needs. The unit can be built in any size from 6' to 30'. The flex units gives the farmer more transporting opportunity and larger units to work with. This model can be built up to 50'. The GrassWorks Weed Wiper is a very economical and efficient weed management system for killing weeds.

GrassWorks Weed Wiper, the ultimate weed control system that eliminates any drift and drip concerns onto your crops. This roll-on paint brush application provides the following:

---Costs pennies per acre in chemical use;

---Quick and easy to apply;

---Can be used even with windy conditions;

---Eliminates the worry of drift problems; and-

--Kills only the weeds, not your crop, allowing no drift and no drip.

The GrassWorks Weed Wiper weed control system will work and be totally different from anything else due to the rotating steel drum. As it is driven it turns in the opposite direction that the GrassWorks Weed Wiper is traveling, so that you get a good wiping action on the plants that you are trying to get rid of. This rotating action does several things.

First, it allows us to run the carpet material very saturated and therefore have a lot of chemical available to apply to the targeted weeds. Because it is rotating, it eliminates the drip.

Second, it is applying the chemical to the bottom or underside of the leaves and stems, allowing plant kill to be easier because of greater porosity. This is applying the chemicals to the weakest part of the weed.

Third, with the adjustable height we are only putting the chemicals on the targeted weeds and not wasting chemicals on grasses and clovers that we want to keep. Adjustable height ranges from zero inches to 5 feet.

Normal operating speeds are 6 to 10 mph. With these speeds we are getting better than 8.5 acres per hour with our 10' units or approximately 15 acres with our 20' units.

The chemical of choice is a 41 percent glyphosate at 20 parts water and 1 part glyphosate. This mixture will have a chemical cost per acre that is very inexpensive, yet very effective, and therefore pays for the investment of the GrassWorks Weed Wiper in chemical savings alone.

Farmers can use any type of chemicals to get the weeds wiped out, the GrassWorks Weed Wiper do the rest. Different units can be custom built with sizes to fit any farming operation.

We cannot attend KNID Agrifest due to a scheduling conflict. Contact GrassWorks Weed Wiper, LLC, at 888-80-WIPER or sales@weedproblems.com, or visit www.weedproblems.com.
