Weeds? Use All Purpose Weed Control

Do you have weeds in your lawn? All Purpose Weed Control is a broad leaf herbicide designed to control a wide range of weeds including Bindii (jo-jo), Creeping Oxalis, Catsear, Clover, Cudweed, Plantain, Thistles, and Dandelion. 

It is our number one recommended herbicide as it is suitable for all lawn types – Couch (including TifTuf), Bent, Kikuyu, Paspalum, Buffalo, Zoysia, Fescue and Rye lawns.

All Purpose Weed Control contains the active Bromoxynil, a selective contact foliage applied herbicide which has some limited systemic action in the plant controlling a variety of broadleaf weeds.

How it works

Bromoxynil inhibits photosynthetic electron transport and uncouples oxidative phosphorylation in mitochondria, thereby stopping energy production and negatively affecting plant respiration. Both Bromoxynil and MCPA have relatively good U.V. stability which means it can stay on the leaf of the weed and not break down in sunlight before it has the chance to work on the targeted weed. It is safe to use on buffalo, however it is not safe to use on the older ST buffalo varieties.

Application

All Purpose Weed Control is available in a ready to use 2L hose on pack which covers up to 200m2. Measure out lawn area before application to ensure the correct dose rate is applied.

Hard to control weeds, such as clover, often need a follow up spray. This can be due to residual seeds in the lawn or remnants of the root system not fully eradicated. Bindii are also hard to control as some weed seeds in the lawn last up to 5 years. The key is to get them before they set flower and reduce their number
