Weedkiller such as glyphosate will only kill a plant if the spray lands onto the greenery of that plant as this is the only way it can be absorbed. The weedkiller cannot be taken up through the roots of the plant. If glyphosate, or any total weedkiller, is being used between wanted plants then care […]
As this weedkiller is systemic, it is important that it is applied to weeds which are actively growing. Avoid using the weedkiller in times of drought or when temperatures are low as the weeds will not be growing efficiently. It may seem a strange concept, but it may be useful to water any areas of […]
Glyphosate weedkillers are absorbed through the leaves of the weed and then travel within the weed to all parts including the roots. Once it has fully circulated within the weed, it then causes death. This process takes time. Weed death should be seen approximately 3 weeks after application of the glyphosate.
Glyphosate is deactivated on contact with soil. It only works by absorption through the green part of plants. Grass seed could be applied straight after the application of the weedkiller but realistically it is better to wait until the weeds are dead as it may be necessary to retreat some of the more persistent weeds […]
A larger amount of water is required to apply the weedkiller through the watering can to ensure even and easy coverage of the designated area. A smaller volume of water is required to apply the weedkiller through the sprayer as they provide a better surface area coverage as finer droplets are created.
