Video: "Agrokiller" - Will Destroy The Malicious Weeds On The Site
Dandelion, wheatgrass, horsetail, bindweed, hogweed - these are just some of the dicotyledonous and cereal weeds that annoy the owners of home gardens. They develop very quickly, drowning out the growth of cultural plantings, and every year gardeners are in search of the latest drugs to combat harmful plants. How easy it is to defeat the most invincible weeds, we will tell in the article.
Why are weeds on the site dangerous?
It has long been no secret that Sosnovsky's hogweed poses a great threat to agricultural crops, because it draws nutrients and water from the soil with its powerful roots, grows with lightning speed and occupies ever larger areas of fertile land.
A huge number of seeds ripened on the umbrella of the hogweed has excellent germination and germinates easily even at temperatures unfavorable for other herbaceous perennials. Therefore, you need to start the fight against hogweed, not allowing the plant to bloom and set seeds.
However, it is very dangerous to deal with a malicious weed by weeding or pruning - hogweed juice causes deep burns on the skin, plant pollen is also toxic and can provoke swelling of the respiratory tract.
The yellow dandelions blooming in spring look adorable. However, if dandelions grow in your area, they are a big problem. How do you get rid of these unwanted guests? Is it really necessary to manually remove each blooming rosette?
Some gardeners periodically fight dandelions that have grown on the site using a mechanical method. But the ground parts of the plant after mechanical damage (mowing) of the outlets are restored after 2 weeks and it is necessary to repeat the procedure again and again. Frequent mowing of young plants only inhibits vegetative reproduction and weakens their development, but does not completely destroy the weed. In addition, the cut flowers are capable of ripening and producing viable seeds that will subsequently germinate.
Another hard-to-eradicate weed is the field thistle, actively growing, it is able to displace any cultivated plants and seize vast territories. The long taproot of the weed plant penetrates so deeply into the soil that it is almost impossible to remove it mechanically.
Field bindweed is a harmful weed that is well known to gardeners and grows in large numbers among agricultural crops. Braiding other plants, it hinders harvesting, shades and suppresses the growth of beneficial crops by bending them to the ground, and is a host plant for viruses that infect tomatoes, potatoes and tobacco.
It is difficult to control bindweed using mechanical treatment, and it is also almost impossible to eradicate it by weeding. Even a small part of the rhizome will grow a new plant. Digging and other methods of cultivating the soil only stimulate it to create new shoots and grow, capturing large areas of productive land.
It is important not to grow root crops until the site is completely free of field bindweed, since the proximity to cultivated plantations stimulates the weed to develop new root buds. It has been proven that the mass appearance of bindweed causes a decrease in yield by 20-80%.
How to get rid of malicious weeds on the site?
Manual methods of eradication of weeds are ineffective and can only contain the spread of harmful weeds on the sites. To prevent the spread of wheatgrass seeds or other cereal weeds, they should be removed promptly, for example, when ears with grains are formed. Weeds can be limited to some extent by using crop rotation and sowing perennial forage plants.
Another method is to grind the rhizomes very finely so that they contain the least amount of nutrients needed to regenerate new plants. This soil cultivation is carried out with a special technique, but it cannot be ruled out that a part of the roots capable of giving new shoots will remain in the soil.
Weeds can be destroyed by a combination of mechanical and chemical methods. In the fall, after harvesting or plowing, allow the weeds to grow again. Then use a special weed control agent.
The August company offers Agrokiller for this purpose. It contains chemicals that are used to completely destroy the root system of weeds. Their use is usually an alternative to laborious mechanical methods for removing unwanted plants.
Agrokiller is a systemic herbicide. Absorbed by the plant, the drug interferes with its life processes, its active substances penetrate into the foliage, and then into the roots of the weeds, which completely dry out in 3-4 weeks (both the aboveground part and the underground rhizomes will be destroyed).
The best results are obtained by applying herbicides in spring, early summer or autumn.
For the destruction of perennial weeds, it is recommended to carry out autumn processing. At this time, plants store nutrients in the root in order to overwinter, and thus are able to receive the maximum dose of the drug.
How to use Agrokiller?
For the autumn treatment of areas with intractable weeds, prepare an aqueous solution of the Agrokiller preparation, adhering to the breeding norms specified in the instructions. For areas where hogweed grows, a higher concentration of the active substance in the solution will be required.
It will be optimal to spray the solution on the leaves and stems of adult plants in the early morning or evening, under favorable weather conditions. If the weather is rainy and windy, transfer the treatment to another time.
It is important to give the drug a certain period for penetration into the plant through its green parts. After that, the weather will not prevent the drug from moving to the rhizomes of weeds, where the herbicide will do its job.
- To achieve a high effect in the fight against perennial weeds, digging the soil should be carried out no earlier than a week after spraying, so as not to disrupt the process of dying off the roots and rhizomes of perennial weeds.
- Spraying in the fall can be carried out before the onset of stable frosts.
- In autumn, the outflow of nutrients into the roots, therefore, herbicides penetrate into the root system, which increases the effectiveness of the drugs.
