|Product Name||Monsanto Amenity Glyphosate XL|
|Areas of Use||Amenity vegetation, forest, forest nursery, hard surfaces, natural surfaces not intended to bear vegetation, permeable surfaces overlying soil|
|Mode of Action Group||Inhibition of EPSP synthase|
Active ingredients: 360 g/L glyphosate.
Monsanto Amenity Glyphosate XL is a foliar applied systemic penetrant total herbicide. Glyphosate moves systemically within treated plants to give effective control not just of top growth but also roots of unwanted vegetation.
The effectiveness of Monsanto Amenity Glyphosate XL is improved by the inclusion of a surfactant in the formulation. This increases the penetration of the active substance into plant cells leading to better control of treated plants.
The product can be used with a variety of applicators, including weed wipers and controlled droplet applicators as well as conventional spraying equipment.
This 5 L bottle is sufficient to treat up to 3.3 ha.
Monsanto Amenity Glyphosate XL gives post-emergence control of a wide range of annual and perennial broad-leaved and grass weed.
Where to use
For use on
When to use
Apply once grasses and broadleaved weeds have emerged and are actively growing (normally March to October). Perennial broad-leaved weeds are generally most susceptible when at or near flowering stage. Perennial grasses must have produced fresh leaves which are green and vigorous. A period without rain of at least six hours and preferably 24 hours must follow application.
How to use
Recommended application rates, water volume and application equipment varies depending on the area of use and type of weed being targeted. Please refer to the product label for full details for your situation. The table below gives a general guide:
|Weed Type||Pack Coverage||Application Rate||Water Volume|
|Annual weeds||3.3 ha||1.5 l/ha||800 - 400 L/ha
(40 l/ha for rotary atomisers)
|Perennial grasses and broadleaved weeds||1-1.25 ha||4-5 l/ha|
Bio-Chemical Mode of Action: Glyphosate belongs to the Inhibition of Enolpyruvyl Shikimate Phosphate Synthase (ESPS) group of herbicides.
ESPS herbicides work by shutting down the shikimate pathway which is used in the production of the proteins it needs to grow and survive.
Mobility: Glyphosate is a systemic penetrant which means that the active substance can be translocated downwards through the plant within the phloem (sugar conducting tissues) and upwards through the plant within the xylem (water conducting tissues).
Application timing: ESPS herbicides are best applied when the weeds are actively growing. They are generally more effective when target plants are younger and in their vegetative phases.
Resistance: As of 2018, 38 weed species distributed across 37 countries and in 34 different crop and 6 non-crop situations had been identified.
