Is glyphosate the best solution for amenity weed control?

Many of our PCA invasive weed members will have seen the final report from Cardiff City council which was published last week, concluding that glyphosate is "the most effective and sustainable weed control method currently available". The results of the study haven't thrown up any surprises and it is pleasing to read that for PCA members, current approaches to invasive weed control have been corroborated and should continue. But why were the trials conducted and how important is this report for invasive weed control?

PCA's Technical Manager Peter discusses the results in his latest blog, which members can read by clicking on the button below.


The next Invasive Weed Conference video

Our next video presentation from the '2022 Invasive Weed Conference' is from Alan Abel, Complete Weed Control, who discusses 'Life after glyphosate: Tried & tested'.

This presentation focuses on the research trials conducted by Complete Weed Control, which formed part of Cardiff City Council's recent report mentioned above.

Upcoming Webinar: Mould & damp (the basics)

As previously mentioned, this is a webinar not necessarily for specialist damp & timber surveyors; but for local/social housing providers, private landlords, property professionals, junior surveyors, office staff and anyone else within your organisation that you feel could do with some extra knowledge and understanding of mould & damp issues.
