LEARN how to control weeds

Most herbicides these days are safe when used in accordance with the label however many require that stock be removed from the treated area for a period of days or weeks following application.

This poses a real headache for hobby farm and small lot holders... where do you move your stock to for days or months when you want to spray broadleaf weeds in your pastures or spray woody weeds in stock paddocks, treat firebreaks or fence lines? The answer?... Weed Force grazing friendly products.

EVICT BIO 360 and RENOVATE BROADLEAF & WOODY herbicides do not require stock to be removed from treated areas
(NB whilst the products themselves pose no threat, sometimes treated and dying weeds often become more palatable to stock, if these themselves are poisonous these may pose an independent threat to some stock).

Weed force offers you two excellent solutions to control most weeds in areas where stock are grazing without the need to remove them. (refer to the label for specific instructions including weeds controlled and applicable application rates)

1:  EVICT BIO 360 for general weed control. Evict Bio 360 is a non residual general purpose weed killer. It controls all vegetation sprayed and is ideal to use :-
  • For general weeds around sheds and equipment
  • For weed control along fence lines and firebreaks
  • For the control of many Woody weeds
NB - whenever Evict Bio 360 is used,  as it is a general weed killer,  this option will result in ALL sprayed vegetation being killed. refer to the product label before using.

2:  RENOVATE BROADLEAF & WOODY HERBICIDE  for selective control of woody and broadleaf weeds in grass pastures
  • Renovate herbicide is effective on a wide range of woody and broadleaf weeds
  • Renovate herbicide used selective in most established grass pastures ( refer to product label for more info)
  • When using Renovate herbicide alone a wetting agent penetrant such as HOLDFAST PENETRANT  & WETTING AGENT must be added.
  • When using Renovate herbicide to control woody weeds such as blackberry and bracken, HOLDFAST PENETRANT & WETTING AGENT must be added.  For more information about controlling woody weeds refer to the Weed Force Woody and Brush weed section.

PREVENT How to prevent weeds from coming back

The best way to prevent pasture weeds is to maintain strong and healthy pasture growth. Pastures block light from the ground which causes woody weed seeds to germinate. Strong dense pasture growth dramatically reduces woody weed emergence.

Once you have got the pasture weeds under control, consider improving pasture composition with vigorous and nutritious pasture species and fertilising to maintain healthy growth

SPRAY tips and hints

Always refer to the product label to determine the suitability of the product for your intended purpose.

Accuracy is the key to the safe and effective use of weed killers. 

Calibrate your sprayer to know how much water it will apply to a given area. In this way you can accurately determine the appropriate rate of weed killer required to be mixed in the sprayer tank.
