RoundUp QuickPro Herbicide Application and Results (RoundUp QuikPro)

Speaker:  Keith McCoy, Solutions Self Chem



Hi, I’m Keith McCoy with Solutions Self Chem.

I’d like to introduce you to RoundUp QuickPro. This product is produced by Monsanto. It is a post-emergent, non-selective herbicide used to control perennial and annual grassy weeds. Also it will take care of certain trees as well.


This product has two main active ingredients. One, glyphosate, is a product that’s translocated through the leaf tissue down into the root system. Another is diquat. So it’s got two modes of action. One is going to interrupt the photosynthesis process, the other is going to do away with the plant’s ability to produce enzymes, which are necessary to develop amino acids for plant growth.


Back here we’ve got a fence line where we’ve got some heavy vegetation. This would be a perfect product to spray along that fence line and take care of that. We’re going to mix this at a rate of 1.5 ounces per gallon of water. It’s already got a surfactant built into it, so it’s not necessary that you actually mix one with it.


Give me just a second, we’re going to mix some up and I’ll be right back with you.


Okay. We’ve mixed our product at 1.5 ounces per gallon of water. Again, it’s not necessary that we mix the surfactant with it, it is built into the product. We’re going to go ahead and start our application.


We put our tip on a cone fan, that way we just cover a larger area as we spray and we’re just going to go through here and we’re going to spray all the foliage to wet.


One really neat thing about this product is that there’s no soil activity with it. It’s not going to be picked up by other plants in the environment. As long as you don’t spray the foliage of that plant, then it should be okay. Again, we’re just spraying to wet.


I’m going to go ahead and finish up here and I’m going to go down about another 20, 30 feet along this fence row. If you give me just a second and let me finish up and I’ll be right back with you.


Okay. It’s been four days since we’ve made our application along the fence row here and let me tell you, we are already killing tons of weeds and grasses in this area, so the product is really working well.


RoundUp QuickPro has two main active ingredients, glyphosate and diquat, two modes of action. At the time of application it was probably 89, 90 degrees, so keep in mind, the warmer the climate, the faster your product is going to work for you.


There is no soil activity with this product so it’s not going to be picked up by other plants in the environment, which is always a good thing.


We mixed it at a rate of 1.5 ounces per gallon of water.


If you need any more tips or advice, please give us a call at 800-479-6583.


Again, I’m Keith McCoy with Solution Self Chem. Ask us how, then do it yourself.
