Press Releasein Industry News

japanese-knotweed-clomp.jpgIf you are looking for a product to get rid of hard to control weeds then there is nothing quite like TORDON 22K. Still key in the marketplace, this product offers excellent efficacy against a wide range of problem weeds, when applied as a foliar treatment.

"Weeds, such as Japanese Knotweed, which are prolific and highly invasive, really do need the right product to get effective control," explains Mr Andy Cawley, sales and marketing manager Dow AgroSciences, Specialty Products. "There is never a "silver bullet" when it comes to controlling Japanese Knotweed, but TORDON 22k is still considered as the best treatment for this difficult to control weed. This is where TORDON 22K scores over other treatments which may require five or more applications over several years to get the same level of control."

TORDON 22K should be sprayed at 5.6 litres/ha when weeds are actively growing and before they get too big. With Japanese Knotweed being so prolific - growing up to 10 cms a day - if it does get too big then the advice is to cut the weed back, and re-treat the re-growth when it is a more manageable size (approximately 1 metre high).

The product is rapidly absorbed by the foliage and roots of the weeds and translocated, or moved, throughout the plant causing disruption in the plant's growth and ultimate weed kill. TORDON 22K also offers additional environmental benefits. It is safe to grasses, which encourages the re-colonisation of the natural flora and prevents any erosion, this is particularly important in areas such as embankments on the railways and highways. It also helps in the management of habitats, providing and safeguarding wildlife corridors, as well as helping to generate a bio-diverse environment.

Dow AgroSciences continues to invest in new technology for the control of difficult weeds such as Japanese knotweed, brambles, ragwort and bracken. It currently has an exciting range of products in the pipeline - one of which is effective against Japanese knotweed, hogweed and buddleia as well as other tough weeds - which it hopes to gain registration and launch in the near future.

Japanese Knotweed has emerged early this year across the country. Need to start planning control with TORDON 22K now.
