History

Initially, weeding control was only made by hand, then, to be more efficient, by mechanic tools and machines.

The chemical weeding control appeared during the sixties and became the main way to weed the fields for all modern and competitive farms. It really became famous and important in the nineties, but the bad effects on the environment (pollution of the water table and soil in general) followed this development. In consequence to these new environment problems, the chemical products were and are more and more contested. The EU norms, and politics in general (like recently in Copenhagen) are nowadays promoting sustainable agriculture, and by that, weeding control which pays more respect to ecology.

Since 1997, the different comments we (“Jaulent Industry”) got from the customers and by reading specifics magazines, made us realize the ecological goal for the 21th century in agriculture. And also the health of the people who are close to the chemical products (mainly farmers), comforted us in this idea. These same people are also worried about the reputation of a „polluter” that they have.

All of these problems convinced Mr Jaulent to find a solution and invest in research in this area: “protect : the environment and the first people in touch with the chemical products.”

It is in this way, Mr Jaulent invested himself to improve and specify the development of the thermic weeding control, for the private individual people, for the collectivity and public services and of course for agriculture in general.


The Thermic Weeding Control is an ecological concept without any noxious products for people and animals, and it respects plants, water and soil 100%.


The “weeds” in concurrency with crops.


There is 2 types of weeds :

  • The dicotyledonous : a flowering plant with two embryonic seed leaves or cotyledons that usually appear at germination, as nettle, bindweed or dandelion.

  • Monocotyledonous : any of various flowering plants, such as grasses, orchids, and lilies, having a single cotyledon in the seed.

Weeding is done by passing the machine over the weed for 1 or 2 seconds. This operation is more often successful on young shoots (2 cm), especially in mid-season (Autumn and Spring). It has been also observed that the thermic treatment is more efficient when the sap is going down.
