Maximising performance in Turf applications.

  • Apply before weeds germinate.
  • Weed Germination Soil Temperature Ranges are as follows:
    • Winter Grass: 10-15°C
    • Summer Grass: 12-15°C
    • Crowsfoot: 16-18°C
  • Soil Temperature is based on the daily average (9 am temp + 3 pm temp / 2) at a 10cm depth.

 

General Instructions.

  • ProForce Battalia 435 Herbicide is selective and controlls most annual grasses and certain broadleaf weeds.
  • As Battalia 435 inhibits seedling development, it will not control established weeds.
  • For the best results, seedbeds should be free of weeds, trash and clods at the time of application.
  • Soils containing high organic matter can also result in poor control.
  • Avoid application to these soils (greater than 6% organic content).
  • Battalia 435 will stain (yellow) any objects it contacts.
  • Keep all non-target objects, etc., well clear of the product and spray.

  • When should I apply my lawn pre emergent?

    The best time to apply these products is in the early spring as this is before broadleaf weeds begin to grow. For grass weeds like summer grass apply later say in late spring or early summer. This weeds germinate later, so by applying your pre emergent later you will get longer control.
  • What is a turf herbicide?

    Turf herbicides, also known as weedkillers are pesticides used to control and manage undesirable plants. It is important that when you use a turf herbicide that you precisely follow the label directions. If you don't do this then the herbicide may fail to control the target weed, damage the turf grass or even prevent you from being able to reseed or re-turf damaged areas. Turf herbicides can be:
    • Selective or non selective. Selective turf herbicides are able to specifically target the weed without damaging the desirable turf grass. Non selective turf herbicides kill everything.
    • Pre emergent or post emergent. Pre emergent turf herbicides prevent weeds from growing and becoming and are used before weeds grow. Post emergent kill weeds after they have emerged.
    • Work against broadleaf weeds or grass weeds.
     
  • What pre emergent herbicide kills bindi?

    Before you go putting down a pre emergent herbicide realise that the best way of stopping any weed is to have healthy dense turf. If you have this it will choke out competing weeds and so you don't have to spray any chemicals. However in some cases you might need to apply a pre emergent herbicide. My two go to pre emergents for bindii are an oxadiazon based product such as Echelon® or Echelon Duo® or for longer control products based on prodiamine such as Onset 10GR® if I want to use a granular option or Barricade® herbicide if I want to use a liquid. Both of these active ingredients give excellent control against this troublesome weed.
  • How does pre emergent herbicide work?

    Withouit going into too much detail pre emergent herbicdies form a barrier a the surface and prevent weeds from establishing. They have no effect at all on weed seeds.
  • Does pre emergent herbicide kill grass?

    If you follow the label the answer is a simply no.
  • Where to buy pre emergent herbicide near me?

    Gilba solutions supplies into NSW, VIC, QLD and the ACT. For areas outside of these feel free to contact us and we are only too happy to point you in the right direction as to where to get product at the best price.
  • Are there any new pre emergent herbicides?

    The newest pre emergent active ingredient is indaziflam sold as Specticle® which was introduced several years ago. However, the newest products on the market are both granular products and produced by Indigo Specialty. These are called Echelon Duo® and Onset 10GR® These are based on oxadiazon and prodiamine respectively.
  • Can I core after applying a pre-emergent herbicide?

    We get asked this a lot. The general view is that aerating afterwards is not a good idea. The thinking is that this will break through the "barrier" and prevent it from working. However, there is turf research[mfn]. Branham, B. E. and P. E. Rieke. 1986. Effects of turf cultivation practices on the efficacy of preemergence grass herbicides. Agronomy Journal 78:1089- 1091. [/mfn] showing that this might not be an issue. Solid tining should be OK, but there might be issues with hollow tine aeration due to soil removal. Although pre-emergent herbicide labels don’t recommend aerating, research has not shown any reduction in summer grass control.
    • After applying oxadiazon, core aeration did not affect crowsfoot control. 
    • Monroe et. al., also showed that aeration did not affect the control of summer grass[mfn]Monroe, J. H., W. M. Lewis. J. M. DiPaola. 1990. Aerification effects on preemergence herbicide activity. Weed Science Society of America Abstracts 30:27[/mfn]. 
    As a general rule, however, if the site requires coring, then carry it out.
