DOW Grazon Pro 1 L . The ideal spot treatment solution for a wide range of difficult to control weeds where safety to grass is important.
Use GrazonPro because:
It contains 60 g/L clopyralid + 240 g/L triclopyr. This combination provides excellent control of broadleaved dock, curled dock, creeping thistle, spear thistle and common nettle and also has an effect on a large range of other weeds
It is one of very few products with a label which fully endorses the use via hand held application equipment
It is fast acting and controls a wide spectrum of weeds
It moves to the roots ensuring high levels of long-term control
Stock grazing can resume only 7 days after application (but longer if poisonous weeds such as ragwort are present)
It is very good value for money – 16 knapsacks from each litre of product when mixed in 10 litre batches
It is rainfast in only 2 hours and is very safe to grass.
If weed populations exceed 5% it will be more cost effective to consider an overall spray with an alternative Dow AgroSciences herbicide, e.g. PastorPro.
Maximise success with GrazonPro – 10 top tips:
Peel open the label and read in full before use
Use only through a knapsack or other hand held equipment, e.g. lance
The rate of application is 60 ml in 10 litres of water
Target weeds at the right size – young and actively growing is best. If you have topped the weeds first then wait 2-3 weeks for sufficient weed regrowth before spraying
Ensure your knapsack is properly maintained, clean and free of dirt with the nozzles able to deliver a consistent and even spray
Wear suitable protective clothing when handling and measuring the concentrate and whilst spraying – gloves, coveralls and rubber boots are essential
Spray until weed leaves are thoroughly wet, but stop before the spray runs off the leaves
GrazonPro spray must not fall within 1 metre of the top of the bank of a flowing or static water body. Spray must be aimed away from the water
Keep other people and pets out of treated areas for at least 2 hours until spray has dried on leaf
When spraying is finished, clean out the tank, spray lines and nozzle, making sure the washings go on a treated area. If the GrazonPro container is empty, rinse thoroughly 3 times with clean water and dispose of the rinsings on the treated area.
A follow up treatment is sometimes required. This could be because:
Not all weeds are at their ideal treatment size at the same time
The visible weed above ground can be small compared with often extensive root systems below ground
Large numbers of weeds can shade each other
Grassland with large weed populations often holds higher levels of weed seed in the soil
Removal of weeds can leave bare patches of ground ideal for further germination of weed seeds.
