Herbicides

Classified according to whether they are total weedkillers, killing all vegetation or selective weedkillers, killing only some vegetation e.g. broad-leaved weeds in grass.

Available as conventional chemicals for application through tractor mounted or knapsack sprayers and as the Nomix Weed Control System where premixed oil emulsion formulations are applied through cda applicators. These are ready to use and non-irritant which makes them safer for the operator and for the environment.

Most weeds will be controlled by a single application.
