Our attention was drawn to the Mankar units because they are capable of outputting the minimum amount of herbicide needed. Today, the combination of Mankar ULV technology and Roundup ProBiactive 450 is our preferred method of weed control along footpaths and around housing blocks, trails, trash bins, benches, signposts and traffic lights throughout the entire city centre of Coventry. The process is safe, effective and easy to implement. It leads to higher productivity and lower costs as work times and herbicide consumption are significantly reduced.

Amenity – Best Practice
The use of pesticides in the community plays a key role in enhancing our quality of life, for example by preserving the visual appeal of our parks and open spaces, by improving the quality of our sports pitches and golf courses, and by maintaining the safety of our road and rail networks.
This PDF booklet provides an explanatory guide to the use of pesticides in the community, and an introduction to Best Practice for users in the amenity sector.
Pesticides play an important role in keeping our amenity areas clean, safe and accessible. The amenity industry has worked to establish Best Practice for pesticide use, to ensure products are applied in a responsible manner.
For further details regarding the requirements of pesticide use, refer to the Code of Practice for using Plant protection Products or visit www.pesticides.gov.uk. Before any pesticide is applied, there must be an evaluation of whether control is really required. Setting clear and realistic management objectives for each site is the key to effective control of amenity vegetation.
