Product Overview

Pramitol 5PS Pelleted Herbicide is a non-selective post-emergent bare ground herbicide that acts as a soil sterilant preventing plant growth for up to 1 year from application.   This product can be used in areas where vegetation is present or to continue keeping an area from growing vegetation. Pramitol 5PS uses water to move the active ingredients into the roots. Dry soil and no water could make Pramitol 5PS less effective.  It is important to use plenty of water when mixing and applying this product.

How much Pramitol 5PS should be used per gallon of water?

I have a 25 gal. sprayer. How much per gallon of water should be mixed? I want zero plant growth


With a product like Pramitol 5PS, you need to make sure you are using the correct amount of product, versus the amount of water used. Per the product label: For annual broadleaf weeds and grasses, you will use 0.35-0.46 lb. per 100 sq. ft. For most perennial broadleaf weeds and grasses, you will use 0.70-0.92 lb. per 100 sq. ft. The higher rates should be used in areas where there is long growing season or high rainfall. It will also provide longer residual control. We normally recommend using the product in at least 2-4 gallons per 1000 sq. ft.

Which is better for weed control Pramitol 5PS or Pramitol 25E?

Both Pramitol 5PS and Pramitol 25E are soil sterilizers, when killing actively growing weeds they work best when mixed with something like RoundUp QuikPro if you want to achieve bareground. Although Pramitol 5PS is no longer available.

How do I reverse the effects of Pramitol 5PS? It killed some grass I didn’t want it to

Unfortunately, normally, to reverse the effects of a product such as Pramitol 5PS, it would need to be done immediately after the application. Sometimes using an activated charcoal product and watering the area may help within the first couple of hours after the application. For more information, we would recommend contacting the manufacturer (Control Solutions) directly at 800-242-5562.
