Plantland’s recommendation for controlling broadleaf weeds in lawns

Viewed 4088 Times
  • Apply a selective broad leaf herbicide to remove unwanted weeds. Efekto Hormoban APM and Efekto Turfweeder APM can be mixed and sprayed over the lawn using an Efekto pressure sprayer.
  • Buffalo grass is sensitive to many herbicides but Efekto Banweed MCPA is safe to use on buffalo lawns
  • Efekto’s No Weed Lawn RTU is a convenient ready to use product ideal for small lawned areas.
  • Efekto’s new granular herbicide Spread and Kill for Weeds is easy to use. Apply evenly at a rate of 50 g per m2 of lawn and water in afterward..

Always read and follow the label and make sure that the product is suitable for your grass type

Herbicide applications should be done evenly across your lawn. The easiest way to achieve this is to use a qualitypressure sprayer – Plantland has a selection of sizes in store for you to consider.

The herbicide solution should be applied to cover the growing leaf blades to the point of ‘run off’. Any excess solution will ‘run off’ the foliage into the soil where it is ineffective – so don’t ‘over apply’.

Applications should be done in cool and dry conditions.  Do not water or irrigate the lawn for a period of 3 hours after the application.  Should rain fall within 3 hours of the application it is advisable to repeat the application.

Always use the entire contents of the herbicide solution, so only mix as much solution as is required. Do not keep the solution for a later application. After the application has been completed, be sure to rinse out the pressure sprayer at least 3 times with clean water to remove all herbicide traces prior to the sprayers next use.

Gardening Tip: A wetter such as G49 or INSURE should always be added to herbicide solutions to ensure proper coverage is achieved.
