Total Weed Control – Pistol
- Long lasting – prevents germination for 6 months
- Resilient – controls many difficult weeds
- Rainfast in 1 hour
- Classified Non-hazard/Non-irritant to the operator
- Dual action formulation
To control annual and perennial broad-leaved weeds and grasses apply 225ml of PISTOL® in a minimum of 10L of water over 500m2.
This is equivalent to 4.5l/ha in a minimum of 200 litres of water per hectare.
45 ml Pistol in 2-4 L of water treats 100m2
A knapsack fitted with a flat fan nozzle or similar, using a pressure of around 1-2 bar is recommended. Good and even coverage of foliage and soil is essential for optimum activity.
PISTOL® is classified as Non-hazard and Non-irritant to the operator under Chip 3 and COSHH regulations. PISTOL® is a water based non-solvent formulation.
PISTOL’S® special liquid formulation is very ‘rainfast’. Once the spray application has dried, usually within 1 hour of application, rainfall will not interfere with its ability to control weeds.
Dual action formulation
PISTOL® combines the systemic activity of glyphosate with the soil acting residual properties of diflufenican. The two different active ingredients are specially formulated to provide the ultimate long lasting total weed control.
Bayer Tip: For established deep rooted perennial weeds such as dandelion, thistle, dock and nettles which may be re-generating, a post-emergence application is ideally required.
