- ProShield has foliar absorbed translocated activity, combined with soil acting properties, providing pre-emergence weed control. It is applied post-emergence to control a wide range of annual and perennial broad-leaved weeds.
How Proshield works:
This long lasting weed killer works because it contains two very useful active ingredients glyphosate and diflufenican.
- Glyphosate - The glyphosate works by moving through the targeted weed (translocation) right down to the roots - being absorbed via the leaves. The results are a quick rapid knockdown and a kill to the roots as well as the foliage.
- Difuflenican (DFF) - This works by being extremely hydrophobic. which means it adheres to the soil surface and forms a chemical barrier. This barrier prevents the weeds from germinating and further regrowing.
- Proshield can be used as a cost effective alternative to Pistol Total Herbicide - containing the same active ingredients of 40 g/L diflufenican and 250 g/L of glyphosate
Application notes and guidance:
- Use post-emergence to control a wide range of annual & perennial broad leaved weeds and grasses
- Apply at any time, however weeds must be growing actively.
- Best results are achieved when the target weeds are small
- Apply using a medium to fine spray, in dry non-windy conditions
- Ideally do not apply in the heat of the day, or when rain is forecast as this may affect your weed kill results
- Do not add any wetting agent or wetting oil as this may result in reduce the products effectiveness
- Do not apply if plants are stressed - i.e under drought conditions or waterlogged as reduced levels of control may result
- Avoid drift onto non-target plants, this includes: leaf surfaces, young bark or suckers of valued plants. As this can result in permanent damage or death of nearby plants
