HAMMER Pack UKWhen weeds are an eyesore you want rapid results from your herbicide.

New Hammer from Scotts Professional is a rapid action total herbicide containing a brand new active ingredient.

The unique combination of Pyraflufen-ethyl and Glyphosate was developed by scientists at Scotts Research & Development in France and the UK, and trialled over the course of two years at the company's Levington Research Station near Ipswich and on areas of non-cultivated and industrial land.

Pyraflufen-ethyl acts rapidly causing the visible signs of destruction of the aerial part of the plant within 24 hours by inhibiting the enzymes that drive photosynthesis, while the systemic action of Glyphosate, completes the total kill.

Applied post-emergence, Hammer is ideal for application between April and September when weeds are actively growing. Once applied, it's rainfast within six hours and effectively controls a broad spectrum of annual and perennial weeds, including the tough brush weeds bramble and bracken.

It's registered for use on natural surfaces not intending to bear vegetation, permeable surfaces overlaying soil and to control weeds around ornamental trees and shrubs.

Richard Walton, Scotts' Business Manager for the UK and Ireland said: "Scotts products have a reputation for delivering results and Hammer is no exception. There is a huge amount of pressure put on landscape contractors and amenity managers to keep areas weed-free. Hammer kills weeds quickly, and the results of their work can be seen instantly."
