The 8 Hidden Costs of Chemical Weed Control

Chemical weed killing may seem cost effective in the short-term, but we’ve identified the following 8 hidden costs that you don’t experience with organic weed control.

1. Herbicide Resistance

Repeated applications of herbicides over many years has resulted in the evolution of many resistant species. This results in increased application rates and chemicals mixing, which further damages surroundings and increases costs. Our Satusteam weeders the weeds become more susceptible to killing and reduces treatment frequency.

3. Off-target Damage

Chemical weed killers sprayed in even light breezes can result in overspraying and off-target damage to desirable vegetation and horticultural crops. Chemical weed killers often release vapours which can cause sickness in chemically-sensitive people.                These effects can lead potential litigation.

5. Public Safety

Application of chemical weed killers, according to label, requires restriction of access to treated areas for a number of hours. This signage poses significant operational costs. Failure to  restrict access can expose the public to ‘probable carcinogens’ and can lead to potential litigation.

7. Soil Biology 

The most commonly used weed killers are Glyphosate based. Glyphosate is a patented anti-biotic and chelator which has   been shown to kill soil microbes and   bind nutrients. This creates additional costs in soil remediation and fertilising. 

2. Employee Exposure

All chemical weed killers are   toxins. Repeated   employee exposure to known   toxins drives up health and safety   requirements, certification and   record keeping costs. Thermal   technology removes toxicology   risks associated with chemical   weed control products,   particularly for horticultural,   landcare conservation workers.

4. Tarnished Public Image

There is now widespread public  knowledge about the hazard to  human health and environment of chemical weed killing. Chemical  spraying by organisations will lead to a tarnishing of their public image and undermines their environment, safety and sustainability commitments.

6. Storm and Potable Water Contamination

Chemical weed killers translocate easily from paved surfaces, through soil profiles and can contaminate ground waters, streams, creeks and estuaries. Removing chemicals from drinking water sources creates enormous expenses.

8. Habitat, Ecosystem & Livestock Threat

Most commonly used weed killers have the potential to contaminate habitats of sensitive populations of endangered species such as frogs, bee’s and butterfly’s which are essential to healthy ecosystems.
