NATURAL WEEDKILLER ACTIVE CONSTITUENT:
525 g/L NONANOIC ACID
Nonanoic acid is also known as pelargonic acid and is derived from plant oils.
HOW IT WORKS
Slasher Weedkiller is a non-selective contact herbicide.
When sprayed over plants it destroys the outer leaf cells causing plants to desiccate, wilt and die.
Slasher Weedkiller is fast acting and requires minimal sunlight or heat to work.
Weeds wilt within a few hours and are usually dead by the next day.
Note: desiccation will only occur to the green plant parts that have been sprayed so thorough spray coverage is recommended. Slasher Weedkiller does not penetrate through bark or to underground roots and bulbs.
WHAT IT’S MADE FROM
Slasher Weedkiller is made from plant oils (GM-free) which have been converted into a natural acid called nonanoic acid (also known as pelargonic acid). Nonanoic acid can be found in pelargoniums in large quantities and is also produced in other plants when stressed.
Do not spray if weeds are wet or rain is expected before the spray dries on the foliage.
For best results ensure thorough coverage when spraying weeds.
Do not allow spray to contact or drift onto plants you do not want killed.
Test spray on porous hard surfaces as discolouration may occur eg pavers.
NO WITHHOLDING PERIOD REQUIRED WHEN USED AS DIRECTED.
NOTE: Do not spray on porous surfaces without spot testing first. Slasher Weedkiller may cause discolouration on porous hard surfaces like pavers and bricks.
HOW SAFE IS IT?
Nonanoic acid (the active ingredient in Slasher Weedkiller) occurs naturally in plants and is regularly used in the processing of fruits and added to foods. In the soil Slasher Weedkiller biodegrades within three days and leaves no lasting residue. There’s also no withholding period so it’s safe to use in the veggie patch. When using Slasher Weedkiller avoid contact on skin or eyes as this may cause irritation. Once it has dried on the foliage it is safe for people and pets.
