Chemical Mowing

Since 1997 JSM has been the leader in broad leaf herbicide applications on state right a ways in Florida. Chemical mowing is way for the state to kill noxious weeds that hinder the growth of desirable grasses. When you have an area that is over grown with weeds not only is it esthetically unappealing to the general public they also damages the soil structure. Most weeds have a larger and deeper route system than grasses do so when they are allowed to spread over large areas there’s a much greater chance for washouts and drainage problems. Thus resulting in greater cost to maintain a given Right a Way. We use a mixtures of 2-4-D and Vanquish to achieve a 98% kill rate on most of the roads we do. Our tractors are out fitted with the latest GPS monitoring systems to give us the most accurate application achievable. We also have the capability to turn on and off each section of the deck thus resulting in less over spray and smaller foot print on the environment.
