Up2Us Landcare Alliance has supported a trial in Ecoblade technology as another tool for banishing the blackberries ever present in our temperate climate. The Up2Us Weeds Coordinator has established a trial on a property in Ancona where two different chemicals along with the Ecoblade technology were used on different patches of blackberry within close proximity to each other.
At the beginning of Spring this year, Up2Us will run a field day at the property in Ancona to see the quality of performance using the different techniques and chemicals. It was decided that at this time of the year, the kill rate will be highlighted after a flush of new growth with the warmer weather. Keep tuned for this event!
