Typical max speed for a short thin layer of vegetation.
(Slow down a factor 2 to 3 if the vegetation is thick) - Power is the only speed limit.

Only a few percentage of UV light are reflected, when hitting a thin green leaf.
Only a little UVA Light goes through and are lost into ground.

UV-C Light Penetrates only the thin top surface - converts to heat inside leaf
and DNA damage inside cells.
UV-B Light Penetrates most of the thin leaf - converts to heat inside leaf
and DNA damage inside cells.
UV-A Light Penetrates a thin leaf - a major part converts to heat inside leaf

The small amount of water in a thin leaf is heated up very efficient from inside by a beam of UV Light.
It is why UV Weed Control equipment can be used at high speed
and
very high speed if the UV beam is generated by equipment able to supply very high power.

At very high power, it takes only a flash of UV light to increase the temperature inside a thin leaf to the boiling point.

Further explanation of required energy in Danish.    KW in the table is total lamp power from several lamps in an array.
