What are the challenges for chemical herbicides?

Chemical herbicides have contributed at least 20% to increased yields. But for 35 years, no new mechanisms of action have been discovered, but significant side effects have. In less than 20 years, herbicides such as paraquat, glufosinate and diquat disappeared in Europe. Glyphosate will also most likely be at least severely restricted in the near future. Climate change is also reducing the effectiveness of soil herbicides. But there will be no future without plant control. The remaining chemical herbicides will have to be used in an optimized way where other methods work poorly. For everything else, innovations such as hybrid herbicides are needed.


Robust and extremely powerful – the volt.cube supplies the electrical energy.


Working widths of up to 12 m allow fast and safe siccation.


The residue-free liquid lowers the electrical resistance of the plants.
