How pricing works
A broad spectrum, non-selective herbicide (powered by Surfmax-G® surfactant system) used in a wide range of situations.
Extremely useful pre-cultivation to eliminate competition when establishing a crop or new pasture.
Also used for general weed control around sheds, fence lines, races, drains and many other situations.
Contains 540g/litre as the isopropylamine salt in the form of a soluble concentrate.
Chemical Group: N-(phosphonomethyl) glycine
Plants should be actively growing and free of stress with clean foliage at time of spraying.
The effects of Ravensdown Glyphosate 540 may not be apparent for 3-7 days depending on weather conditions, weed species and the herbicide rate used. Some perennial weeds may not show effects for 14-21 days.
Accelerate Penetrant should be used with Glyphosate 540 to increase the rate of uptake on certain weeds (refer label for details).
Annual weeds can be grazed within 1 days of application and 3 days is preferred for perennial species. Situations containing poisonous plants such as ragwort should not be grazed until the plants have died down.
Glyphosate 540 is a high strength formulation of glyphosate powered by Surfmax-G® surfactant system. The main benefits of the high strength formulation are:
Shorter rain free period required = 20 minutes when used with Accelerate, otherwise 2 hours.
Quicker turnaround times = 1 day for annual weeds and 3 days for perennial weeds.
Less chemical required to treat the same area.
Easier to measure and mix.
Less drums to recycle.
Less volume to transport and store.
Glyphosate 540 is a very cost effective non selective herbicide that can be used in a variety of situations. For pasture renewal, it helps eliminate the resident weed populations resulting in a cleaner seedbed, better plant establishment as well as saving valuable tractor hours and diesel. Glyphosate 540 allows faster turnaround times for direct drilling and cultivation whilst saving valuable time. It is also very useful as a moisture conservation tool.
Glyphosate 540 LabelAgrochemicals - NZ
Ravensdown Glyphosate has so many uses in such a wide variety of situation that it is always best to refer to the Glyphosate 540 Label for specific application details. Glyphosate 540 is compatible with most commonly used herbicides and insecticides.
Once it is in the plant it is translocated to the meristematic tissue. There it inhibits the activity of EPSP synthase, preventing the production of amino acids phenylalanine, tyrosine & tryptophan, causing the plants to starve to death. Symptoms under cold conditions can take up to 10 days to appear. This activity only occurs in plants.
- Keep out of reach of children. - Store in accordance with NZS 8409 Management of Agrichemicals. - Store in original container tightly closed in a locked, dry cool area away from foodstuffs, fertilizers and seeds. - Stores containing 1000L of Glyphosate 540 require signage and secondary containment. - Stores containing more that 1000L of Glyphosate 540 require emergency response plans.
Please refer to the product label for product handling and storage details.
When stored appropriately this product should show no significant degradation for two years from the date of manufacture. Please contact your Ravensdown Account Manager, or the Customer Centre on 0800 100 123, for further information about the use of any product that is older than this.
Reduced results may occur if dirty water (e.g. from ponds), hard water containing calcium salts or water containing metal ions (e.g. iron) is used. Ensure tank is free of any residue of previous spray materials. Half fill the spray tank with clean water and add the required amount of Glyphosate 540, agitate and continue to fill the tank. Glyphosate 540 is compatible with most commonly used herbicides and insecticides.Add Accelerate penetrant where required. If mixing with other herbicides, ensure these are fully dispersed before adding Glyphosate 540. Be sure to observe all precautions, especially plant back periods when using other herbicides. Use tank mixes promptly.
Plants should have sufficient leaf area for uptake, be actively growing, free of stress and with clean foliage at the time of spraying. The addition of Accelerate penetrant is particularly important on plants that have a waxy cuticle, such as ryegrass and brushweeds like gorse, broom, bracken and sweet briar. Reduced results may occur if dirty water, hard water containing calcium salts or water containing metal ions is used. If hard water cannot be avoided, the addition of a recommended surfactant is advised.
