Description

Bow & Arrow Herbicide

Active Ingredients: Diflufenican @ 15g/L, MCPA @ 300g/L & Clopyralid @ 20g/L

Similar or comparable to Stadium Turf Herbicide (ADAMA), Jolt Selective Herbicide (Barmac) & Spearhead Selective Herbicide (Bayer).

Bow & Arrow Herbicide provides outstanding control of various broadleaf weeds in turf. The exceptional broadleaf weed control in turf is achieved from a formulation containing a combination of three active ingredients, including MCPA as potassium salt, Clopyralid as a potassium salt and Diflufenican. This unique three-way mixture provides extended weed control (season-long) in most situations.

What broadleaf weeds does Bow & Arrow Herbicide target;

  • Bindii (Jo-Jo, Onehunga) (Bindy-Eye, Bindi) (Soliva sessilis)
  • Capeweed (Arctotheca calendula)
  • Cat’s ear / Flatweed (Hypochoeris radicata)
  • Creeping oxalis (Oxalis corniculata)
  • Cudweed (Gnaphalium spp.)
  • Plantain (Plantago lanceolata)
  • White Clover (Trifolium repens)

Where can Bow & Arrow Herbicide be used;

  • Bow & Arrow can be used on most turf varieties.
  • Transient discolouration may occur on Kikuyu, Carpet grass and Queensland Blue Couch.
  • Varietal differences in certain Buffalo grasses (e.g. ST85) may produce more pronounced effects, and it is recommended that small areas be tested for turf safety before large-scale application occurs.
  • Do not use on Bent grass or Winter grass species, golf greens and bowling greens.

Why choose Bow & Arrow Herbicide;

  • Contains the active ingredients Diflufenican, MCPA and Clopyralid.
  • Outstanding broadleaf weed control.
  • Very low application rates.
  • Non-ester formulation (no volatilisation issues, reducing the potential for off-target damage).
  • One standard application rate.
  • Superior turf safety (cool and warm-season grasses).
  • No odour.
  • A mix of active ingredients for improved resistance management.
  • Low poison schedule (Schedule 5 – Caution).
  • Additional surfactants are not required for most weeds.

What is the application rate of Bow & Arrow Herbicide;

  • Bow and Arrow is used at an application rate of 5 litres per hectare or 50mL in 2-5L of water per 100m2.

Current broadleaf turf herbicides have a tendency to cause rapid desiccation of weed leaves and shoots. Recovery may then occur from the significant root systems and/or other underground components of the weed. The effect of Bow & Arrow Herbicide is slower than other broadleaf herbicides, but the ultimate result is more effective, with no evidence of regrowth.

Questions and answers from customers

    Can Bow & Arrow be used on a Kikuyu blend seed that is 2 months old?

  1. Q Can Bow & Arrow be used on a Kikuyu blend seed that is 2 months old?
    Asked by Amanda on May 5, 2024 9:14 am
    Answered by the admin

    Kikuyu needs to be well-established before applying Bow & Arrow Herbicide. Wait until the Kikuyu has developed a strong root system and has been mown at least 3-4 times. This usually takes several weeks to a couple of months after seeding.

     Bow & Arrow Herbicide is a post-emergent herbicide recommended for actively growing weeds for best results. It can be applied as a spot spray or a whole lawn application. It will only target the existing weeds in the lawn and does not provide ongoing residual control. If there are existing weed seeds in the soil, these will germinate under suitable conditions. We recommend pre-emergent herbicides such as Spartan Herbicide, Barricade Herbicide, Oxafert or Echelon Duo Advanced Herbicide, Insecticide & Fertiliser for residual control.

    The "directions for use" recommendation is to apply Bow & Arrow Herbicide to actively growing weeds when not stressed or when frost is imminent.   This indicates that warmer months of the year, i.e. spring/summer are the ideal times to apply.  Always read the 'directions for use' carefully before application.

  16. Does the Bow & Arrow Herbicide have a wetting agent already in it?

    Asked by Matt Cook on October 11, 2022 9:36 pm
    Answered by the admin

     Bow & Arrow Herbicide does not require additional surfactant for use on most weeds as it has a surfactant package included in the formulation.  If you are spraying hard-to-kill weeds (i.e. glossy or hairy leaves), the plants are stressed, or conditions are not challenging (i.e. hot and dry), additional surfactant would be recommended.
