This is a Roadside Herbicide Truck that is working on the Dallas County Highway TxDOT (Texas Department of Transportation) job. The program is built off of Texas Department of Transportation’s Roadside Vegetation Management Manual 2015, Chapter 3. In the manual, they breakdown the locations into two areas, Guardrails/Delineators and Edge of Pavement. There are over 900 miles of roadway that Good Earth is spraying to keep weeds from growing that can cause safety issues if grown too high. The locations use Roundup PROMAX which is a glyphosate product. However, we add a product called Outrider on the guardrails and a product called Landmark XP on the edge of the pavement. Both of these products are herbicides, but they have a different type of control on a specific list of weeds. If it were to grow too high it could block the guardrail warning signs from being seen by drivers. This truck is equipped with three chemical tanks to allow the truck to spray three different types of herbicides at once if needed. When spraying it travels at an average speed of 7mph, and can spray herbicide up to 35 ft. allowing it to spray close to 30 acres per hour. However, this job only calls for spraying on average 6 feet of spray, which at 7mph calculates to 5 acres per hour. Good Earth works to maintain these highways not only to keep them safe, but beautiful as well! Contact us for more information, or you can head to our About Us page and learn more about what we do!
