Quali-Pro Glyphosate Plus herbicide is an equivalent brand form of Monsanto’s Roundup Original herbicide. The active ingredient in both is Glyphosate, featuring the formulation of 4 lb. active ingredient per gallon of soluble liquid. As a 41.0% active concentrate, it needs to be diluted in water to attain the appropriate percentage of spray solution.
Glyphosate is a non selective post emergent herbicide, in that it will kill plants with which it comes in contact. Some exceptions would be the genetically bred Roundup Ready crops such as corn, soybeans and cotton. Its mode of action is systemic. The active ingredient inhibits an enzyme found only in plants that is essential to the formation of specific amino acids.
Glyphosate Plus gives broad-spectrum control of many annual and perennial weeds, woody brush and trees. It is formulated as a water-soluble liquid. No additional surfactants, additives containing surfactant, buffering agents, or pH adjusting agents are needed or recommended. The product moves through the plant from the point of foliage contact to and into the root system. Visible effects on most annual weeds occur within two to four days, but on most perennial weeds may not occur for seven days or more. Extremely cool or cloudy weather following treatment may slow activity of this product and delay development of visual symptoms. Visible effects are a gradual wilting and yellowing of the plant which advances to complete browning of above-ground growth and deterioration of under-ground plant parts. Weeds must be emerged at the time of application to be controlled by this product. Weeds germinating from seed after application will not be controlled. Un-emerged plants arising from unattached underground rhizomes or root stocks of perennials will not be affected by the herbicide and will continue to grow. Glyphosate does not exhibit residual soil activity. Degradation of the product is primarily a biological process carried out by soil microbes.
Annual weeds are easiest to control when they are small. Best control of most perennial weeds is obtained when treatment is made at late growth stages approaching maturity. Lesser control is achieved when weeds are experiencing poor growing conditions such as drought stress, disease or insect damage. Reduced results may also occur when treating weeds heavily covered with dust. Reduced control may result when applications are made to annual or perennial weeds that have been mowed, grazed or cut, and have not been allowed to re-grow to the recommended stage for treatment. Recommendations for specific weeds are given on the label.
This product does not provide residual weed control. It may be tank mixed with herbicides that will control germinating seeds. For subsequent residual weed control of later germinating seeds, follow a label-approved herbicide program. You will need to read and carefully observe the cautionary statements and all other information appearing on the labels of all herbicides used. Use according to the most restrictive label directions for each product in the tank mixture.
