Under the name BioMant = Bio + Mant(is), Mantis offers sprayers for alternative, chemical-free weed control.
BioMant machines destroy weed with water heated to 99.5°C. The high temperature of the water destroy the cell structure of the plant, causing the upper part to die off. After multiple treatments, the plant grows so weak that it dies off completely.
Mantis developed the BioMant Herbi spraying system specially for the application of organic herbicides, e.g., pelargonic acid, which has to be applied in large quantities (e.g. Finalsan® requires166 l/ha) in order to achieve the desired results. The BioMant Herbi can, however, also be used for applying other liquid preparations, such as organic plant fortifiers.
