In recent months there has been a lot of discussion about glyphosate and whether it is safe to use. We recently posted a blog that discusses this very topic, read it here if you want to go over it again.
We have discovered after speaking with a number of our customers that some people are still a little wary about using glyphosate, so here is a product we wanted to mention to you that is an effective alternative to glyphosate in eradicating broadleaf and grass weeds.
Glufosinate-Ammonium 200 provides broad-spectrum weed control with a high level of crop safety.
Glufosinate-Ammonium 200 is very effective on over 80 species of broadleaf and grass weeds and has a high level of crop safety.
Glufosinate-Ammonium 200 is considered an alternative herbicide to Glyphosate but does require 100% coverage to be effective.
Glufosinate-Ammonium 200 is a non-volatile herbicide with non-selective activity against many annual and perennial broadleaf weeds and grasses.
Glufosinate-Ammonium 200 is absorbed by plant foliage and green stems. It is not significantly translocated as an active herbicide throughout the plant, and therefore will only kill that part of a green plant that is contacted by the spray.
Glufosinate-Ammonium 200 does not provide residual weed control.
Visible symptoms of control appear in 3 to 7 days, but complete desiccation may take 20 to 30 days under cool conditions. Best results are achieved when the application is made under good growing conditions.
Application to weeds under stress should be avoided as the efficacy of the product will vary. These conditions of stress often occur during continuous severe frosts, as well as dry or waterlogged conditions.
If you need to control weeds in grapevines, valuable horticulture crops or gardens, Glufosinate-Ammonium 200 is the right choice to clean up around the crop while giving it maximum protection.
More than most products, Glufosinate-Ammonium 200 really rewards careful application with exceptional performance, when it is applied with the right equipment at the right timing.
Surefire Gamma Herbicide (Glufosinate-Ammonium 200) is available in three pack sizes (1L, 5L & 20L) and can be purchased from the Specialist Sales website.
