What do selective herbicides kill like Bow and Arrow herbicide? A selective herbicide kills or retards the growth of an unwanted plant while causing little or no harm to desirable species being your cool or warm season grass lawn. Bow and Arrow selective herbicide controls weeds such as White clover, Plantain, Capeweed, Cats Ear, Bindii, Jo-Jo, Cudweed and Creeping oxalis. Apply at a rate of 50ml in 2-5lts of water to cover 100sqm.

For best results the turf and weeds should be actively growing at the time of treatment. Complete weed death may take up to 6 weeks. Faster results can be expected on smaller and younger weeds. Due to residual effects of diflufenican over-seeding treated areas within 3 months of application may inhibit establishment of the turf grass. Avoid mowing during the 2 days before and after treatment if possible. Warm season grasses are more prone to weed invasion as the growth slows down during the cooler months of the year. When to apply Bow and Arrow herbicide depends on the type of weed you’re dealing with and whether you’re treating them pre or post-emergently. Treating the weeds post-emergently means that they’re already sprouted and are visible above ground. Application of Bow and Arrow herbicide is most common in Late Autumn and early Spring. If possible try to apply this herbicide before weeds start to seed and the weed seed bank in your lawn increases. Allowing broadleaf weeds to mature can also reduce turf density and turf health as it smothers the grass resulting in reduced turf coverage.

Bow and Arrow herbicide can cause Transient discoloration on Kikuyu, Carpet grass and Queensland Blue Couch. Varietal differences in certain Buffalo grasses (e.g. ST85) may produce more pronounced effects and it is recommended that small areas be tested for turf safety before large-scale application occurs. Apply using a suitably calibrated sprayer for good coverage of target weeds. Avoid exceeding application rates by overlapping sprayed areas.

Bow and Arrow herbicide should not be applied if rain is expected within 4 hrs, or if frosts are expected or your grass in under stress. It can be mixed with Lawn Rules range of liquid fertilisers and soil amelioration products as the pH of our products range between 5.5-7.5pH and we have tested the compatibility on various sites.
