Q. What considerations do I need to take when using a glyphosate product such as FarmWorks 41% Glyphosate Plus?
A. Glyphosate is a broad-spectrum weed killer that can be used to control a number of weeds. When used according to the label, it will not affect individual Roundup Ready® crops. Closely read the label to ensure you are using the product correctly.

A. Since the product works through the plant from the point of foliage contact to the root system, visual effects generally take two to four days for annual weeds and up to seven days for perennials. You will see the plant gradually wilt and yellow then turn brown. Please note that the time it takes for this product to work may be slowed by extremely cool or cloudy weather.

A. With a hand-held or backpack sprayer, apply to the foliage until it is wet, but be sure to not spray to the point of runoff. If you are using a ground sprayer (boom or boomless), apply at the rates on the label. With any type of application, be sure to select the proper nozzles to avoid generating a fine mist.
