How does Roundup Pro Vantage Work?
Roundup Pro Vantage works by breaking down the waxy surface of the leaf and entering the plant cells. Most other Glyphosate weedkillers do this using a combination of the Glyphosate and Tallow Amine which is product which aggressively strips off the wax of the leaf allowing the Glyphosate to enter. Roundup Pro Vantage contains the unique pro bio adjuvant technology which gently allows the glyphosate to enter the plant more efficiently increasing the chance of a permanent kill of the weed. The difference with Roundup Pro Vantage using this Pro Bio technology is that it allows the glyphosate to enter the leave without the plant/weed knowing that it is under attack, allowing the Glyphosate to enter the roots and kill the weed for good.
Where can I Use Roundup Pro Vantage?
Roundup Pro Vantage can be used in any plant free areas. Remember that Roundup Pro Vantage is so effective that any cross spray will potentially kill any plants the weedkiller comes into contact with, so use with care. It can be used on open soil, grass edges, gravel and aggregate drives, sand enclosures, and on hard surfaces such as pavements and pavings.
Is Roundup Pro Vantage Safe for the Environment?
Roundup Pro Vantage has a low toxicity to humans, animals, birds, fish and insects. The active ingredient acts on an enzyme that is actually found in plants which prevents the plant from making proteins. There is no need to segregate spraying areas and Roundup pro Vantage is approved for use in aquatic areas, which means in water or on land close to water. The world Health Organisation actually rates Glyphosate as ‘Practically non toxic’ which is the lowest classification available.
Can I keep and store diluted herbicide spray?
Once diluted the active ingredient will start to break down and lose activity within a few days. Ideally, surplus spray should be sprayed out onto an untreated area where it will have a beneficial herbicidal effect, but not on tarmac or concrete.
