Roundup ProVantage 480 5L - MAPP no. 15534

Roundup ProVantage is a patented potassium salt formulation containing 480g/L glyphosate and a unique blend of two surfactants. The optimised blend of surfactants delivers highly efficient activity at the leaf surface and a synergistic improvement in glyphosate uptake and overall performance.

Roundup ProVantage incorporates a high technical specification and the formulation has been designed to address stewardship aspects, so vital now for glyphosate application.

How Roundup ProVantage works

Roundup ProVantage is a herbicide which is sprayed on to green leaves where it is absorbed and drawn into the plant's vascular system. It then stops the production of the amino acids which build the protein the plant needs to grow and survive. The plant effectively starves to death.

Spray Windows for Roundup ProVantage

When to Apply Roundup ProVantage 5L

Timing

The timetable needs to be flexible according to conditions rather than calendar. The first spray should not be done until weeds have emerged and are actively growing and this will vary from year to year according to the weather.

The graph below right shows spray windows as late April to mid-May for Spring treatment, with a subsequent optional spray in Summer, and a further spray in the period August to September.

Monitoring the Results

Inspection and evaluation is essential to assess the performance and check if you need follow-up treatments. Weeds sprayed with Roundup ProVantage do not show signs of die-back until 7-10 days have elapsed. It is important to be able to recognise early symptoms, so that treated weeds can be identified. Symptoms show first in Annual Meadow-grass, which takes on a yellow tinge a few days after spraying. Other grasses follow by turning first yellow, then reddish brown before they die.

Broad-leaved weeds will appear healthy at this time, however, if you look closely you will see the leaves will be turning white in the centre. Within a week the plant will be dead. Use this guide to monitor the progress and effect of the treatment. You should expect 95% kill of all weeds to occur with the 3.75 litre rate, approximately 10 - 21 days after treatment. Any seedlings that germinate after spraying will NOT be affected.
