QuikPRO is also available here in 1.5 oz packs for smaller applications.
Roundup QuikPRO is a wettable granular, non-selective post-emergent herbicide for commercial, industrial, non-crop and residential use. QuickPRO has two active ingredients: 73.3% glyphosate and 2.9% diquat. The addition of diquat, along with the surfactant, gives you even faster burndown. It controls broadleaf and grass weeds, or woody brush and trees - roots and all. Roundup Quick Pro is absorbed quickly by plants and is rain fast in about an hour. This super-fast dry time means rain won't wash the Roundup away as easily and it works much faster than typical glyphosphate products. Roundup QuikPRO comes with a convenient 1.5 oz measuring cap, and 1.5 oz. per 1 gallon of water.
Roundup QuikPRO is a post-emergent, systemic herbicide with no residual soil activity. It is non-selective and gives broad-spectrum control of many annual weeds, perennial weeds, woody brush and trees. Roundup QuikPRO is formulated as a water-soluble granule containing surfactant and no additional surfactant is needed. Apply through most standard sprayers after dissolution and thorough mixing with water according to label instructions.
Time to Symptoms:
Roundup QuikPRO moves through the plant from the point of foliage contact and into the root system. Visible effects on most annual weeds occur within 1 day, and on most perennial weeds in 2 days. Extremely cool or cloudy weather following treatment may slow activity of this product and delay development of visual symptoms. Visible effects are a quick yellowing of the foliage which advances to complete browning of above-ground growth and deterioration of underground plant parts.
Mode of Action:
One of the active ingredients in this product inhibits an enzyme found only in plants and microorganisms that is essential to formation of specific amino acids. A second active rapidly disrupts cell integrity of photosynthetically active tissues in the contacted foliage.
Reduced control may result when application is made to annual or perennial weeds that have been mowed, grazed, or cut, and have not been allowed to regrow to the specified stage for treatment.
Heavy rainfall soon after application may wash this product off of the foliage and a repeat application may be required for adequate weed control.
Uniform and complete spray coverage will provide best results. Do not spray weed foliage to the point of runoff.
No Soil Activity:
Weeds must be emerged at the time of application to be controlled by this product. Weeds germinating from seed after application will not be controlled. Plants growing from unattached underground rhizomes or root stocks of perennials that have not yet emerged at the time of application will not be affected by the herbicide and will continue to grow.
This is a great product and does the trick. I switched to this from Roundup Super Concentrate since it works much faster. The key ingredient is Diquat. The weeds turn brown within days. However, be careful with Diquat. After speaking to Monsanto, it appears that caution should be used when killing an area where you plan to start a garden for 12 months. Residual chemical can be in the soil. Food bearing plants should not be planted in a killed area for 12 months. This may also apply when planting a flower garden. Bees, butterflies etc may be poisoned. I am using to kill weeds only and Dallisgrass. We are also using to kill Bermuda Grass in beds where we plan to put new bushes (non-flowering).
Good weed killer using the recommended 1.5 oz (by weight, of course) per gallon of solution for spot spraying (of weeds growing between the bricks in a patio and driveway).The wilting of the weeds took 2-3 days anyway, not sure how effective the "Quick" part was, but the "Pro" part was excellent. If I figure it correctly, the cost per gallon is about $1.60, which sure beats the price of the already made concentrated solutions sold in smaller volumes at the hardware stores.
I am nearly 80 years young and can't pull weeds etc. as in the past. My son-in-law gave me 10 oz. to try around my garden and it is the best thing I have ever used. I wanted more and decided to purchase a 6.8lb jug although I have not worked in quite sometime and it was just a little more than I could afford. I decided I would set aside money and buy your QuikPRO anyway, and glad I did it. Would recommend it to anyone who wants quick results.
This is the first time I have done business with DoMyOwnPestControl.Com but I have used this product before, very happy with the results. Recommend to do what the instructions say and get great results. Have to say a real High Five to DoMyOwnPestControl.com. Received my shipment as ordered and quicker then expected. Great price, Great Service! You have a new satisfied customer, Thank You!
Used the product per instructions on jug. Gave quick results. Unwanted folage turned wilted within a day. In about a week it all took on a burnt out brown. It truely kills off everything, weeds, small trees, grass, bushes, brush, etc. "so make sure you don't put it on anything you want to keep" Nothing has yet to come back, or grow it the area sprayed, for weeks. This is truely the very best post-emergient, non-selective, herbicide I have found!
How soon can I seed after applying Roundup QuikPro?
We want to kill everything (it's mostly weeds) growing in our existing lawn and then start over with Bermuda seed. How soon can we seed after applying Roundup Quikpro? Is there another product that would work better for this application?
Is it ok to spray QuikPro on unwanted vegetation and weeds around a big oak tree?
Yes, you can use RoundUp QuikPro on vegetation around a tree. If the tree is established, then the RoundUp should have no effect on the tree. You should try to limit the exposure to the tree and only directly treat the vegetation you are trying to get rid of.
We are currently having nightly frost and the next morning the plants(large patches of short weeds and grass) I want to kill are damp. Can I still mix and spray as normal?
You are more than welcome to spray the roundup on the plants while they are still damp, just make sure no rain will occur within the next few hours that could potentially wash it away. Also, keep in mind that weeds and grasses have to normally be in an actively growing state (this means consistent temperatures over 65 for several days) to absorb any sort of nutrient into their system. This means if they are not allowing things into the plant system since its in a dormant state, you may not see full results when spraying this time of year even with a product like RoundUp.
