LOWERING THE COST OF MOWING PATCHES OF GRASS IN ISOLATED UNITS

KOSTENSENKUNG BEIM MAEHEN VON RASENPARZELLEN IN STREULAGE

For the proper care of grassed areas (e.g. grass along roadsides) a special product has been developed by the Federal German BAST as a growth controller for grass grown for non-agricultural purposes and this has been named "Embark" (It includes the chemical mefluidide). Its effectiveness is described. This product helps to reduce the cost of maintenance for the areas concerned, as some mowing operations may be omitted. Its use is not permitted along the banks of waterways, and care must be taken to avoid the spread of the material so information in depth is necessary for the user regarding the effects of the product, particularly the effects on the ecosystem.
