Alien Invasive Weed Control

Eradication of Giant Reed Arundo donax

From previous experience and from viewing a considerable number of resources on the internet it was clear that Arundo donax known as Giant Reed or Spanish reed is a very difficult plant to eradicate. I could not accept that Arundo donax is so difficult to control so together with Michael of Ecoman we applied our minds to the problem and have come up with a solution which works miracles.
