Invasive Vegetation Management & Treatment Limited
'FAST' System - Guaranteed Japanese knotweed Eradication
The key to Invasive Vegetation Management’s (IVM) successful innovative methodology, known as the IVM 'FAST' (Foliage and Stem Treatment) System, lies with IVM's directors great knowledge of the plant.
The directors background are predominantly in Invasive Weed Control,but they have also worked in the landscaping and construction industries. In the 1990’s they spent their time specialising in selective weed control on sports pitches and golf courses.
Whilst undertaking this work it became apparent to them that due to the physiology of vegetation and the nature of its growth, every site required a tailor made solution, using a range of herbicides and timings to ensure complete eradication. This knowledge has played a large part in the success Invasive Vegetation Management’s FAST System.
When they were first approached regarding Japanese knotweed (Fallopia Japonica) they used their experience in an amenity environment and applied to the knotweed. It was not long before they realised that the largest problem to overcome was to improve translocation rates of herbicide into the rhizome system of the plant.
This was achieved by encouraging herbicidal acceptance within the rhizome and sampling various methods of application. Together these advancements made the dated ‘three year treatment program’ a thing of the past and allowed Japanese Knotweed to be eradicated and GUARANTEED within one growing season.
