Herbicide, Proliance Quattro

As a holder of the PA1 and PA6 Certificate of Competance In The Safe Use of Pesticides, Ali was able to supervise Callum in the use of pesticides today, the first time he had ever used a knapsack sprayer. Over the last few weeks the weeds have grown rapidly in the warm spring weather, so spraying them with a weed killer, before they set seed, had become a necessity. The preferred weedkiller the gardeners use is the herbicide 'Proliance Quattro'. Sprayed onto the leaves with a knapsack sprayer it is then translocated throughout the plant, controlling all parts including roots, rhizomes or stolons, killing the weed over a few days or weeks, depending on the weed type.
