Finding an economical yet effective alternative to reduce herbicide use, such as glyphosate, is a huge challenge facing the industry. As a cost-effective single application preventative herbicide BARRICADE creates a weed barrier for up to 6 months, while minimising risk to operators, the public and non-target species.

Choosing products that create efficiencies in productivity is important, especially as we become increasingly time poor and resource restricted, in an environment where less chemical use is desired

Two applications of BARRICADE provides up to 12 month control, reducing the number of time-consuming post-herbicide applications and hand weeding interventions required.

BARRICADE provides a preventative weed tool that reduces reliance on post-emergent sprays such as glyphosate, or other post-emergent herbicides.

Planning is important - talk to us today

With pre-emergent weed control you need to plan and act earlier rather than later, ideally in spring and autumn before weeds start germinating. With longevity in mind BARRICADE has been designed to be applied before weeds germinate as it provides a preventative barrier for up to 6 months. Get the performance you want and don’t wait until you see signs of weeds before applying.

Additionally BARRICADE delivers on other challenges you may face such as increasing productivity given less time and resources and the expectation to minimise chemical application.

Productivity gains

Two applications of BARRICADE provides up to 12 month control, reducing the number of time-consuming post-herbicide applications and hand weeding interventions required. BARRICADE binds tightly to the soil, creating a preventative barrier to weeds while still allowing established plants to grow normally. With such a long preventative window you will have more time to get onto your other important tasks.

Stewardship and reduced chemical inputs

BARRICADE provides a preventative weed tool that reduces reliance on post-emergent sprays such as glyphosate, or other post emergent herbicides. You may need to use glyphosate, steam or alternative methods to reduce weeds and by following that with an application of BARRICADE you'd stop new weeds from germinating and reduce the need to return to the site on a monthly basis to conduct another application of post control sprays like glyphosate. A program using BARRICADE reduces the post-emergent weed sprays such as glyphosate. Importantly BARRICADE will provide up to 6 months pre-emergent control of range of summer and winter weed species.
