Sprayer lance targets awkward weeds

WEEDS that need spraying around buildings and along fences can be targeted easily using a new 700 series hand-held spray lance, claims maker Nomix-Chip-man.

The company claims that the sprayer is safe to use and the heavy droplets fall where you want them, thereby eliminating spray drift. It is designed for use with ready-to-use Nomix herbicides Hilite and Touche which are plugged directly into the spray lance, saving on mixing and handling, it says.

The 700 series also includes a "Big 5" 3.75-litre herbicide refill system and costs £49.95 (0117-9574574).
