Double Time Herbicide
Double Time broad spectrum selective herbicide offers reliable control of Clovers and a wide range of broadleaf weeds in most lawn situations. Double Time is quick acting – normally works in 7 to 14 days. Lower Schedule then many equivalent herbicides.
How it Works
MCPA and Dicamba mimic natural growth hormones, and upset the natural hormone balance in weedy species. Growth hormones regulate cell elongation, protein synthesis, and cell division. Upsetting the normal hormone balance causes unregulated plant growth.
The unregulated growth causes symptoms on susceptible plants that include growth and reproduction abnormalities (especially on new growth). Broadleaf species exhibit stem and petiole twisting (epinasty), leaf malformations, parallel
venation, crinkling, leaf strapping, stem callus formation, and stunted root growth.
Most active on growing plants. Plant death is gradual, due to unconstrained mobilization of reserves, however generally symptoms are observed within 7- 14 days following application.
How To Apply
For optimum results it is best to apply to actively growing weeds. Ideally, do not mow the turf for 2 days prior to and following the application. Fertilisation should be avoided following application for a period of 2 weeks.
Double Time Herbicide is applied at a rate of 6.5L/
65mL/100m2 in 2 to 5 ltrs of water
340 g/L MCPA present as the dimethylamine salt
80 g/L DICAMBA present as the dimethylamine s
