Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method for controlling senecio jacobaea, or Common Ragwort, involves the preliminary steps of identifying a target Ragwort plant (1) and characterising its growth phase (5) as either 'woody stem' or 'rosette'. A nozzle guard (12, 13) appropriate to the characterised growth phase is then selected (6a, 6b) and fitted to a knapsack sprayer (11). The target Ragwort plant is then isolated (7a, 7b), from its surrounding environment by placing the nozzle guard (12, 13) therearound. Subsequently, an amount of weed-killing composition appropriate to the characterised growth phase is applied to the target plant by spraying (8a, 8b) from a reservoir (14) in the knapsack sprayer (11).
(FR)L'invention concerne un procédé de lutte contre le séneçon jacobée, vulgairement appelée jacobée, qui consiste à: identifier initialement une jacobée cible (1) et caractériser sa phase de croissance (5), soit 'tige ligneuse' soit 'rosette'; choisir (6a, 6b) ensuite un protège-buse (12, 13) approprié à la phase de croissance caractérisée et l'adapter à un pulvérisateur à dos (11); isoler (7a, 7b) la jacobée cible de son milieu ambiant en l'entourant par le protège-buse (12, 13); et enfin, appliquer à la plante cible, par pulvérisation (8a, 8b), une certaine quantité de désherbant approprié à la phase de croissance caractérisée et contenu dans le réservoir (14) du pulvérisateur à dos (11).
