Weeds make life difficult for all gardeners and agricultural workers. Therefore, special preparations have been developed for the destruction of weed plants, having a common name - herbicides. One of the popular universal remedies is Agrokiller. This is the most effective drug that is used as a continuous action herbicide.
Fields are treated with Agrokiller before sowing works or before the appearance of the first shoots, that is, immediately after sowing of cultivated plants. Agrokiller from weeds affects only young shoots and leaves. It does not penetrate the soil. The article will discuss how this weed control works and how to use it properly.
The active substance glyphosphate enters the weed plant through the stem and leaves. Herbicide Agrokiller evenly spreads over the weed, affecting the vegetative mass and root system.
Important! When released into the soil Agrokiller does not adversely affect the cultivated seeds, so it can be used after sowing.
Provided that the proportions of agrokiller will be maintained, which are described in the instructions for use, the tool will not worsen the condition of the soil and the environmental characteristics of the site. For human health, the composition is moderately dangerous. Not included in the number of acutely toxic drugs for honey plants. The best tool for the development of virgin soil or preparing the lawn for sowing.
Agrokiller is suitable for the destruction of the following types of weeds:
- A succession.
- Elemental Jerusalem artichoke.
- To sleep
- Shepherd's purse.
- Wormwood and others.
The advantages of using Agrokiller
Each tool has its own characteristics that distinguish it from other similar drugs. So, many gardeners and farmers prefer to use Agrokiller for several reasons:
- The use of the drug allows you to remove from the garden / field difficult weeds. This is possible due to the high concentration in the composition of the active substance.
- After the plants interact with the drug, the green mass and roots die off.
- A wide range of temperatures that allows soil treatment.
- Due to the absence of soil activity, the drug does not affect the sowing, which allows the field to be processed immediately before the sowing works.
Important! With the help of Agrokiller, it is possible to destroy even such malicious perennial weed as the hogweed of Sosnowski.
Instructions for use
The ideal time to use a herbicide is 2 weeks before the start of planting and planting. This period of time is enough for the death of weeds. After 14 days after the treatment of the field, you can start sowing and planting cultivated plants.
Preparation of the solution
To destroy ordinary weeds, 30-40 ml of Agrokiller should be diluted in 3 liters of water. With this dosage, do not destroy the malicious weeds, so you need to make a more concentrated solution for them - 40-50 ml per 3 liters of water. This amount of liquid can be processed 100 m.2 fields.A warning! The diluted liquid must not be stored. Therefore, dilute as much of the drug as you need to use for 1 time.
The composition should be sprayed on the green part of the weeds. All work should be carried out in the morning / evening in calm weather. If the drug dries quickly in the rays of the scorching sun, the effect will be less noticeable. The period of absorption of Agrokiller in plants is 5-6 hours. If it rains during this time, then part of the solution will be washed off and the effect of the product will not be as effective as indicated in the product description.
Agrokiller produced in containers with a capacity of 40, 90 and 500 ml. This capacity is enough for amateur gardeners. For the destruction of weeds in large farms need larger capacity tanks, so the market can buy 1 and 5 liters of solution.
Reviews of people who used Agrokiller indicate a high efficacy of the drug. It can be used to remove weeds that have a well-developed root system, as a result of which it is impossible or almost impossible to remove them mechanically. If you follow the instructions for preparing the solution, you can get rid of all types of weeds for 1 treatment.
ReviewsSvetlana, 38, Tomsk I really liked the drug. I used it to cultivate a plot of land near the house I bought. The soil was not worked out and there were so many weeds in the garden that I could not handle them manually. The result was satisfied!
Andrei, 48 years old, Tula. The hogweed began to grow in my country house. Not only that it is impossible to remove it mechanically, it is also poisonous. Trying to wrest it, I burned all my hands. I had to undergo a course of treatment. I read on the Internet about Agrokiller and decided to try. After processing the plant is gone. And then I wondered: why did I try to eradicate it with a shovel, if this could be done with the help of herbicides?
