    Q
    Will pramitol 25e kill vegetation on a stone pathway? I diluted 1T into 1 gal of water and used a pump spray
    I diluted 1 T. of pramitol into 1 gal. of water and used a pump sprayer to apply the product in between the stones. How long will it take to kill the light vegetation?
    A
    Pramitol is a total vegetation killing product and will eliminate anything growing where you spray it. The Pramitol will keep anything new from growing in the treated areas for up to 1 year. Caution should be used during application as some leaching in the soil could occur and destroy nearby desirable vegetation and turfs. The Pramitol needs to be mixed at the rate of 8 ounces per each gallon of water at the lowest dilution and can be used up to 32 ounces per gallon for harder to kill brush. Time of plant death will depend on how much product is absorbed through the root system, if it is irrigate after application and if the plant is under any stress to cause it to not absorb the product as quickly. It could be days or weeks before complete death is visible in the weeds you are treating. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

    Q
    Can I mix Pramitol & RoundUp Pro?
    Pramitol says to apply before weeds emerge or within 3 months. I have some weeds that have been growing most of the winter & have not died off because the winter hasn't been cold enough. Can I mix Pramitol & RoundUp Pro to kill all existing weeds & prevent new ones?
    A
    Yes you can absolutely mix RoundUp and Pramitol to apply at the same time. Keep in mind, Pramitol is not just a pre-emergent but also a post emergent product. Normally customers who do not see burn down or kill of existing weeds, or long term prevention of new ones are due to 1 of two factors. Either not enough water was used intially during application to allow proper absorbtion and penetration into the soil to create a solid barrier, or the application was done after the weeds/grasses you are trying to kill had already begun to go dormant. Even if they havent died out over the winter, they are still in a dormant faze so they are not going to suck up the product or really anything for that matter to be affected by it. Same thing will apply with the RoundUP as well. In order for it to work the weeds must be in an actively growing state with steady soil (not air) temperatures of 65 degrees or higher for at least a week straight.

    Q
    How soon must Pramitol 25E be rained or watered in?
    Assuming that if it remains on foliage or bare ground too long it will begin to degrade, maybe not? Also, given, say, 2-4" of top growth on soil of average permeability, how much rain or irrigation would be a minimum to incorporate it?
    A

    Q
    Should I water in the Pramitol 25E after application?
    I treated gravel drive with Pramitol (12 oz/gal/500 sqft) and Roundup. Should I water in the Pramitol after 24 hours to deliver it to roots and minimize leaching into lawn the next time it rains?
    A

    Yes rainfall or watering in the Pramitol 25E after application is recommended to help push product deeper in the soil, which will increase the effectiveness towards the root system. If you have any other question about Pramitol 25E, we recommend going over the product label

    Q
    I need to know what the most powerful herbicide you sell is for brush along a fence line.
    I need to kill brush and weeds along fence lines on a ranch. I want everything that is big enough to die to be dead quickly and for as long as possible. Basically, I want the strongest, baddest stuff you got.
    A
    One of the best products we carry for sterilizing the soil would be Pramitol. This will kill any weeds, grasses, or brush along your fence line, and keep any from growing back for up to a year. You want to be very careful with your application so as to not have runoff into nearby areas of desirable turf.

  • Asked by Anita from Clayton
    04/28/2014
    Q
    How soon can you replant grass seed after treating your yard with Pramitol?
    A
    You would not be able to plant new seed after using Pramitol unless you till up the entire lawn, dig out at least 6 inches deep of the soil and then replace with fresh soil. Pramitol is a soil sterilizer used for areas around the home where no growth is wanted for extended periods of time, such as along fence rows where weed eating becomes tiresome. Pramitol will last in the soil for a minimum of 1 year after applied. If you were wanting to kill out all current weeds and grass prior to reseeding and starting new, you would need to apply RoundUP as this will kill anything currently on the ground but will not last in the soil more than about 2 weeks.

    Q
    Will Pramitol 25E work for killing unwanted trees that grow on my fence?
    I can't get rid of them, I think they are call white stick trees. and need to get rid of brush to.
    A

    Pramitol 25E will not control brush, woody vegetation, or trees. You could still apply this in the area for grassy and broadleaf plants, however you would need to use a more appropriate product for the brush such as Crossbow Herbicide.

  • Asked by Coty from Alvarado
    07/20/2017
    Q
    Can you use Pramitol with diesel for the oil part instead of water
    I want to kill the grass in my driveway, it is coming through the asphalt
    A

    Pramitol 25E actually states on the product label: For faster top-kill of existing vegetation, apply Pramitol 25E in diesel oil, fuel oil, or weed oil. Use oils at rates of 100 - 200 gals./A. Tall, dense vegetation, such as johnsongrass, will generally require 150 or more gals. of oil per acre for thorough coverage.

  • Asked by Robert from Manhattan, Ks
    07/25/2015
    Q
    Is Pramitol 25E absorbed into dead or dying plants?
    Say 4-6" of mostly grass is dead, either via burn-down herbicide or preliminary foliar activity of Pramitol. Is Pramitol absorbed into dead, dry vegetation and tied up at least until that decays?
    A

    Pramitol 25E works as both a post-emergent and a pre-emergent herbicide, so it will both affect existing plants and prevent new plants from growing. If there is a lot of dying vegetation in an area where you want to apply Pramitol, be sure to use plenty of water to carry the active ingredient into the soil. Pramitol will not be absorbed into plants that are already dead or dying from other herbicides. Pramitol will effectively prevent new plant growth for up to 12 months when applied according to the product label. Pramitol will not kill existing woody vegetation. If you have further questions, you may reach our Customer Service at 866-581-7378 M-F 9a-5p EST.

  • Asked by Ben from Hiawatha, Ks
    05/08/2019
    Q
    How much Pramitold 25E do I need for an acre of gravel when mixed with Roundup for burn down of existing weeds?
    Have 3 acres of gravel lot with fringe edges worst for broadleafs, I estimate I need to spray about 1 Acre.. Considering Pramitol 25E with RoundUP sprayed at 75G water per acre, a 1-10 ratio for pramitol. Many weeds have been up for over 3 mos, reason for RoundUp. Most area will be sprayed with wand. PRIORITY IS PERMANENT AS CAN KILLING THE GROUND. What do you recommend for water rate per acre, Pramitol + Roundup rates for aggressive kills? thanks, I am a non-expert.
    A

    You are pretty close on your application needs. The Pramitol 25E Product Label states for under asphalt and similar areas: Apply Pramitol 25E uniformly at the rate of 7.8 gals. per acre (23 oz. per 1,000 sq. ft.) in a minimum of 100 gals. of water. Use the lower rate to control annual and susceptible perennial weeds and grasses such as downy bromegrass, oatgrass, goosegrass, quackgrass, puncturevine, goldenrod, and plantain. Use the higher rate to control hard-to-kill perennial weeds and grasses such as johnsongrass, bindweed, and wild carrot.

    Mixing roundup in will definitely help with the burn down of the already actively growing and emerged weeds. Using most roundup products around 2-5 oz per gallon of water will yield a strong enough solution for any burn down. Be sure to keep the Pramitol outside the dripline of any desirable vegetation on the property like trees/bushes/shrubs etc.

    Q
    Can Pramitol be used on playgrounds, assuming I can keep kids away for 7+ days?
    A

    There is no restriction on the Pramitol 25E product label regarding playgrounds, it would be used only in areas where complete control of all vegetation is desired.  As long as children are out of the area during application until dry it should be ok to use.
