Biobarrier® Root Control System

Biobarrier® Root Control System

The Biobarrier® Root Control System means years of security from roots or weeds growing where they’re not wanted

Biobarrier® Root Control System is a unique method of root and weed control that was originally created in response to the U.S. Department of Energy’s need for a product that could be used in the closure cap of hazardous waste sites to prevent root intrusion and any possible chance that hazardous waste could get into the food chain. The Biobarrier® Root Control System manages roots through the slow, controlled release of triflura­lin which diffuses from the protective nodules in vapor form, creating a root inhibition zone in the soil. A small amount of Trifluralin is constantly released and as it biodegrades, is continuously replaced, ensuring the effectiveness and long life of the herbicide zone.

Because it is a geotextile, the Biobarrier® Root Control System is water permeable, does not disturb soil hydrology and is flexible enough to be contoured to various installation geom­etries.
