I sprayed this, about fours weeks ago and as per instructions, on a well established vine in my garden and on some bamboo encroaching from next door.
I had the spray on a single jet so I could hit individual leaves.
The bamboo is no more. The vine is a deep brown. Yippee, I thought
Due to the wind an evergreen tree is now everbrown and isn't getting better.
Three other bushes are now two-tone green and brown and probably less than 25% chance of survival.
There appeared two large brown patches on the lawn and, having scraped away the dead grass, broken the surface of the soil, dropped two large bags of grass seed and covered with a thin layer of compost and watering twice a day, it's finally getting back to how it was.
The subject gets mentioned every time the washing is hung out or there is a glance out the window. Never an opportunity missed.
The stuff is brilliant and this is a good offer but where the instructions tell you to take precautions......

Only thing missing is a skull and crossbones on the LABEL.



Username checks out.

Seriously though, as OP says, use with care (or even better, not at all.) Can’t think why anyone who’s not fighting the Viet Kong would need 200 litres of this nasty stuff.
Monsanto would have been proud

A little of this goes a VERY long way - extremely concentrated, so you can use it to make up more than 200 litres of actual weedkiller.

This stuff and a 5ltr pump sprayer. 200ml into sprayer with 5 litres of water and just spray the whole patio. Wait two weeks for everything to die, jet wash and then sand. Works a treat.

It's difficult to get Sodium Chlorate but Ammonium Sulphamate is a good substitute. Unlike Glyphosate, it isn't neutralised once it hits the soil, it remains active for quite a time so don't let it run onto anything you want to keep.
The alternative is to have open-wallet surgery carried out and buy a pressure washer. Select a dry period, blast out the weeds. Pour weedkiller over the drive using a watering can. Let it dry completely and refill between the sets with kiln-dried sand using a clean broom.

Yep thats the way to do it, but if you want it to stay like that then you then need to use a sealant or grass an weeds will just take root again.

If its anything like galup which is so bad its awsome, kills everything it touches, then personally id be sensilbly cautious but not scared stupid. I use Gallup in a backpack sprayer, and am super cautious when im diluting it, blue disposable gloves and saftey specs, wash any spills off my skin immediately etc. Once its diluted and anything neat such as your funnel or measuring jug etc is out of the way then you can relax a little. I get drips down my back as the rucksack drips a bit etc but a proper shower after and ive never died. Personally i always wear gloves and safety specs even when diluted as its not worth the risk in being complacent but i wouldn't be running to Jump in my neighbour's pond if a bit got on my arm, be warned think about your route before spraying as if you make an arse of it you will have brown footprints on your lawn for weeks.

Glyphosate doesn't work like that. It relies on the leaf to work, absorbing it into the plants system that way over a period of a couple of weeks. Generally, the more leaf, the better the kill. Glyphosate won't work very well on woody weeds such as Mare's Tail for that reason. Pouring it diluted over a root system will not have the desired effect.
I need this for some giant hogweed (yes I know it’s dangerous etc), however I’m right next to a farmers field with active crop growing, I assume as this is sprayed on the leaves it won’t have any affect on his crops via the soil?

That's why I wrote "Unlike Glyphosphate..."
I purchased a similar 5L tub of Glyphosate from eBay about 2 years ago along with a 5L pump sprayer.

You put in 20ml of weedkiller per 1L of water. So 100ml will go in a full 5L pump sprayer. A full sprayer will keep my large paved area at the back and smaller paved area at the front free from weeds all year round. I just check once a month and if I spot anything green, give it a blast.

So that 5L tub of weedkiller will potentially last me 50 years !
Completely overkill purchase, should have bought much lower quantity :).

Salt water, the salt will also hang around a little while suppressing weeds, will eventually dilute and wash away over the winter and doesn’t harm bees.

Same thing for slightly less:

Glyphosate is great (whatever the brand). Just takes a couple of weeks (depending on a range of variables) to work.
leet21/07/2019 22:49

Surely it would be easier to simply ring-bark it.
Anyway, it would eventually need to be chopped down, so why not just fell it?

Or am I missing the point? If you're trying to kill a tree on the q.t. then, yes this would probably kill such a tree if a) it's deciduous and b) you are able to spray a large proportion of the leaves.

You believe that could also knock some copper nails into the trunk to kill it (though this is something I haven't tried myself yet).

This is great advice, thank you. I never thought about the shoes your wearing being contaminated to the point of killing your lawn. I’ll stick the wellies on for this one then
I hope that you all realise that this is for professional (farmers, commercial growers, green keepers,etc,)use only and that you need a PA1 and PA6 knapsack qualification to apply it!
The joke is that anyone can buy it ,but you have to have been on a two day course and gained the qualification to be legally allowed to spray it.
leet21/07/2019 22:49

I have to question why you would want to use a chemical to kill a tree on your own land? Why not simply remove, either yourself or getting a professional into do it?

If you kill it, it will still be there but dead. Therefore I have to assume that it is not your tree, probably a neighbours or a council tree that you want removing.......naughty naughty.

Rightly or wrongly, the The Plant Protection Products (Sustainable Use) Regulations 2012 covering this point apply only to 'professional users'. They do not cover non-professional use.

Far too much.
12.5ml per litre is plenty for grasses and common weeds. Double it for knotweed and giant hogweed.
