Australian-first trials of a device that uses electricity to kill weeds are yielding promising results,
particularly for combating herbicide-resistant weeds.
The project, now in its second year, aims to assist farmers and community land managers develop
sustainable, non-chemical weed control solutions.
The Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) is leading the project in
association with AGXTEND, a brand of CNH Industrial, testing the XPower machine, powered by
Zasso™, under Australian conditions.
