How does Roundup® TURBO work?
Roundup® TURBO can be used pre-plant in a tank mixture for the control of volunteer maize; and the producer can plant maize as soon as five days after application. The glyphosate is absorbed into the weed plant through its leaves and soft stalk tissue before being transported throughout the weed to the roots, nodules and bulbs. Glyphosate is rapidly inactivated when it comes into contact with soil since it is absorbed onto soil particles and thus cannot be taken up by the roots. Its unique action in weed involves the inhibiting of a single enzyme only found in the weed plant. Therefore, it only controls weed and not micro-organisms or animals and insects.
Why Roundup® TURBO?
Roundup® TURBO offers broad-spectrum weed control and contains Transorb™ technology for faster absorption and translocation for faster uptake and symptoms. As a pre-plant spray, you can rely on clean fields. Roundup® TURBO is rainfast within two hours of spraying and shows greater consistency in a wider range of weather conditions. This powerful formulation contains 25% more glyphosate per litre than Roundup® 360 and allows for less packaging, handling and waste than 360 formulations. Two of the key benefits of Roundup® TURBO, is its compatibility with a wide range of other products and its application flexibility as per individual label instructions.
