Bracken Bruiser for the control of bracken
The bracken bruiser is the perfect organic method for the control of bracken. It is essential to stop this invasive plant from encroaching into farmland and other grasslands sooner rather than later.
Safe and easy to operate, the Bob1520 bracken bruiser roller will tackle these invasive weeds by crushing them, diminishing new growth, and spread.
The bracken bruiser works by bashing or crushing the weeds, causing their sap to bleed and the rhizomes to be starved of nutrition. The result is a much weaker regeneration of the bracken as the weed cannot replenish itself by taking nutrients back down the stem. Crushing can be done up until late July. Best results are achieved when the fronds have fully opened, and the plants have expended most energy. Later bashing is still beneficial although the effect will be less, as the plant will have begun to store nutrients. In rocky and rough terrain, it is advisable to do this work early before the cover gets too dense and the ground difficult to negotiate. In this instance, it may be necessary to repeat later in the season.
