Diamond is a brand new EXCLUSIVE product which offers excellent results on many tough weeds including horsetail. It is a soluble concentrate containing 160g/l 2,4-D + 240g/l glyphosate. It is approved for use on Amenity Vegetation, Orchards, Hard Surfaces (Railway Ballast), and Green Cover not being used for crop production. Once on the foliage, the 2,4 – D will break down leaf tissue which enables the glyphosate to translocate around the plant far quicker and deeper. It will deliver total weed control to both grasses and broadleaved weeds, controlling them quicker and penetrating deeper into the root system than glyphosate alone.
Diamond is one of the few products on the market that will successfully control Horsetail & Marestail. Previous products that controlled this difficult weed containing glufosinate-ammonium are no longer permitted for sale in the U.K making Diamond the go to product following its launch in spring 2019.
