As the name suggests weed wiping is quite literally wiping weeds. The apparatus shown above is filled with a concentrated dose of herbicide. The chemical saturates the rope attached at the bottom of the wiper allowing the operator to apply directly to the target weed. Simple to use, however training and appropriate PPE are still required.
Unless you have access to a machine wiper, a hand held wiper is not the best approach to a large area. Its very advantageous for spot treatment and useful as a follow up treatment after a spray event. There is zero drift from the process, very beneficial when working in close proximity to a water course. The herbicide is applied directly to all green leaf foliage and translocates to the roots killing the weed. Any surplus herbicide can be placed back into its container and used again, resulting in zero waste.
