- Excavation: If the crops or lands are severely damaged by the knotweeds, then the excavation is the most prominent method used. When there is no time and the spread of Japanese knotweed keeps on increasing, then a portion of the land is completely excavated and disposed of. During this method of removal, the soil gets separated from the knotweed making it again fertile. After removal, the soil is thoroughly checked for the clean site and free from contamination.
- Mesh control: It is an innovative method to get rid of Japanese knotweed by means of a mesh layer. This layer is spread against the growth of Japanese knotweed. This method helps in Japanese knotweed control by forcing the plant to detach its stems. It exposes this damage to frost and weakens the weed that leads to death. It is most widely recommended as it does not cause any disturbances to the environment.
