ROUNDUP BIACTIVE 20L

Code: R/UP/B/20

Active Constituent: 360 g/L Glyphosate (present as the Isopropylamine salt)

Tough on Weeds, Environmentally Friendly


Roundup® Biactive has been specifically formulated for use in environmentally sensitive areas. This unique formulation contains an `aquatic approved' surfactant, allowing for use in sensitive areas such as around streams, creeks, dams, channels and drains. Roundup Biactive controls a broad spectrum of annual, perennial and aquatic weeds.

How Roundup® Works:


Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup® Biactive, works to control weeds by interfering with the synthesis of the amino acids phenylalanine, tyrosine and tryptophan. Glyphosate inhibits the enzyme EPSP synthase in the shikimic pathway which leads to an accumulation of shikimic acid. One of the reasons Roundup® is very safe to use is that EPSPS is found in plants, fungi and other microorganisms but not animals. Once in the plant, glyphosate inhibits tissue growth in roots, leaves and stems. This leads to impaired photosynthesis and the ability to access water and nutrients. The plant also becomes more exposed to saprophytic fungi which feed on dead organic material. The effect of glyphosate is affected by dose, plant health, moisture stress, nutrient status, light intensity, development stage, leaf area, and application parameters such as herbicide concentration, droplet size and surfactants

FULLY REGISTERED FOR OVER 100 WEEDS AND TREES, INCLUDING A WIDE RANGE OF ANNUAL AND PERENNIAL AQUATIC WEEDS.
