Herbicides

There are good weeds and bad weeds. Good weeds provide ground cover and protect the soil from excessive wind and water erosion and heat. However, bad weeds take away precious moisture and nutrients from your crop and can down grade it due to contamination. If it’s a bad weed, the challenge is then what sort of herbicide do I use? Most herbicides have varying levels of side effects on the environment, the person applying it and the crop you are wanting to protect. It’s good to know that at OCP we have developed a NEW herbicide which is safe for the environment, the applicator and non-target crops when used as directed.

SLASHER WEEDKILLER

SLASHER WEEDKILLER contains 525g/L PELARGONIC ACID which occurs naturally in plants under certain environmental conditions . SLASHER WEEDKILLER is the first Organically Registered Pelargonic acid based “burn-down” herbicide developed and manufactured in Australia by OCP. Independant trials have validated that SLASHER WEEDKILLER is considerably more cost effective than the standard Organic weedkillers. It can be used where other herbicide sprays pose a potential risk to public health and safety; can drift onto sensitive plants causing  irreversible effects, and where lasting soil residues can be taken up by surrounding plants and cause long term physiological damage.

*NB: Label states Nonanoic acid. It’s a requirement under Government Regulations to use the Scientific name for C9 fatty acid even though the source and methods of production can be very different as is the case with SLASHER WEEDKILLER
