JK 1000 Stem Injector

Product Code: 140CH6040-pro

The​ JK 1000 Stem Injector works by injecting a precise dose of herbicide into each cane of the weed to be treated, typically Japanese knotweed, Giant Hogweed and other hollow stemmed species. This measured application allows the herbicide to translocate throughout the roots and rhizomes of the targeted plant. Stem injection has a number of benefits over folia application of herbicide. It can be applied in all weathers and maximises the herbicide dose by eliminating waste and drift, delivering the optimum amount to exactly where required. The treatment is generally effective in 2 – 3 weeks as translocation of the herbicide is quicker than folia application.​ The stem injection of hollow cane non-native plants is recognised as the most successful and ecologically sound herbicide application method. The patented Stem Injection tool has been specifically designed for herbicide application, and successfully tried and tested over a decade. Stem injection is controlled and specific to the target species, so the treatment can be completed in all weather conditions and near water with the relevant applicator licences.​ Stem injection of herbicide continues to establish itself as one of the most popular and effective methods of treating non-native, invasive plants, despite a backdrop of continued uncertainty over the future use of glyphosate. Stem injection has continued to enhance its reputation as a most viable treatment method.​
