Gallup® Biograde Amenity is a systemic herbicide containing 360 g/l glyphosate which provides effective control of most broadleaved and grass weeds following foliar uptake. Glyphosate moves systemically within treated plants to control not just top growth but also the roots of unwanted vegetation.
Gallup® Biograde Amenity can be used to control invasive and difficult weeds such as Japanese Knotweed and Giant Hogweed. As well providing excellent control of broadleaved weeds and grasses in amenity and industrial settings, Gallup® Biograde Amenity can be used to control weeds both in and near water.
This 5 L bottle is sufficient to treat up to 3.3 ha.
Gallup® Biograde Amenity can be used to control most annual and perennial grasses and broadleaved weeds including:
Where to use
For use on:
When to use
Apply once grasses and broadleaved weeds have emerged, are actively growing and have adequate leaf area to absorb the spray (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:
|Situation or type of weed||Application rate|
|Annual weeds||1.5 - 4.0 l/ha|
|Perennial grasses||4.0 - 5.0 l/ha|
|Perennial broadleaved weeds||4.0 - 6.0 l/ha|
|Woody weeds||3.0 l/ha|
|Heathers||4.0 - 6.0 l/ha|
For conventional hydraulic tractor mounted and knapsack sprayers:
For conventional rotary atomisers use a minimum spray volume of 40 l/ha and ensure that the droplet diameter is at least 200 microns.
For weed wipers, use a 1:1 or 1:2 dilution depending the weedwiper type.
For stem injection, use 2 ml of undiluted product per cut.
For cut stump application, use a 1:9 dilution for deciduous species or 1:4 dilution for coniferous species.
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.
