Roundup ProVantage total weed killer incorporates a high technical specification and the formulation has been designed to address stewardship aspects, so vital now for glyphosate application.
Roundup ProVantage is a total 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.
Superior performance in challenging conditions
Low drift formulation
Improved rainfastness and speed of uptake
Improved hard water efficacy
|Rates per hectare||Dilution for 200 l/ha water volume||Weeds controlled|
|2.25 Litres||1:87 or 12 ml per litre of water||Annual grasses, annual broad-leaved weeds|
|3.0 Litres||1:67 or 15 ml per litre of water||Arable weeds pre-planting of trees|
|3.75 Litres||1:53 or 19 ml per litre of water||Most perennial weeds|
|4.5 Litres||1:44 or 23 ml per litre of water||Floating aquatic weeds|
|7.5 Litres||1:27 or 37 ml per litre of water||Rhododendron, Ivy Horsetail and difficult waxy-leaved plants|
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 on the right shows the weed killer 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.
