Pack size

750g, 15kg, 20kg and 500kg packs

Mode of Action

Can be applied at any time of the year. Treatment becomes effective after sufficient rainfall mobilises the active into the root zone where it is absorbed by the target grass. Herbicidal activity will continue for several seasons after application. The granules have a hardy clay carrier with the Flupropanate present both on the surface and within the clay core. This allows the granule to have a two phase release with the Flupropanate being rapidly released from the surface of the granule and then more slowly released from within the clay core. This in turn allows for better weed control. The time required for complete plant death depends on soil type, amount of rainfall, root depth, plant species, plant density and rate of GP FLUPROPANATE used. The rate for aerial application will be between 7.5kg/ha and 15kg/ha. A single application is normally effective for several years. Forage grass production usually increases as competition is reduced. Increased grass production is also dependant on adequate rainfall and an acceptable grazing management program. GP FLUPROPANATE may cause temporary herbicidal symptoms to appear on perennial grasses. Higher rates used to control severe infestation may kill some beneficial grasses. This effect may be minimised by managing for application when grasses are dormant.
