GLIFOSAAT-Versoenbare Mikro-Elemente

Smart Trio_SA GRAAN_4.pptx

SMART TRIO is ‘n nuwe tegnologie blaarvoedingsproduk wat 100% versoenbaar is met jou glifosaatbespuitings – en dit met die amptelike toestemming van Monsanto en Dow! Die produk voorsien noodsaaklike mikro-elemente (sink, mangaan en boor) deur tegnologie wat verhoed dat die glifosate of onkruiddoders bind met die mikro-elemente wat moontlik kristalle kan vorm en kan lei tot die verstopping van spuitkoppe. Die tegnologie maak dit dus nou moontlik om SMART TRIO saam met glifosate en ander onkruiddoders in dieselfde tenk te kan meng, sonder dat die werking van onkruiddoders benadeel word!

Wanneer ‘n plant gelyktydig blootgestel word aan meer as een onkruiddoder (wat glifosaat kan insluit), word die plant onder addisionele stres geplaas om self ook eers die gifstowwe te verwerk.  Die SMART-reeks is die enigste blaarvoedingreeks wat nie net versoenbaarheid en opbrengsverhoging bewys het nie, maar ook geen nadelige invloed op die werking van die onkruiddoders het nie.  Hoe meer onkruiddoders saam in die tenk is, hoe groter is die stres op die gewas en hoe beter is die SMART-reeks se reaksie!

What Are Pesticides

What Are Pesticides and How Do They Help Your Garden?

Gardening is always going to be a tough pastime to deal with when you have pests invading your garden and ruining all your hard work. Anyone that has ever looked after a garden can tell you that it takes a lot of hard work and effort to keep a garden looking good all year round. They will also tell you that you can ‘t afford to allow pests into your garden at any time because they will invariably end up undoing all the work you have done to get it there in the first place.

Pesticides are basically designed and manufactured to prevent, disrupt or even destroy any particular phase of a pest. You will often find them used inside the house to get rid of household pests like cockroaches and ants; however you also get them being used outdoors to help prevent them from taking over your garden and destroying what is left of your handy work.

 

Any Good Gardener Should Know About Pesticides

You may have a problem with pests in your garden, but using a pesticide might be a disconcerting thought because of some of the effects you might have heard about. The truth of the matter is that you can use specific types of pesticides that are only harmful to the pest it is intended for, and it will not do any harm to anything else. Unfortunately you can’t stop there, because there may be residual after effects that you have to deal with as well.

Making sure that the pesticide only works on the pest takes a careful eye and further steps to prevent secondary poisoning. Birds may eat the dead cockroaches that manage to crawl outside after they have been poisoned, which can in turn poison the birds unnecessarily and they can also die from it. As much as you might prefer to do it that way, the easy route isn’t always the best one because you could end up with a whole lot of other problems arising from the use of pesticides.

What Are Pesticides Actually Used For

In addition to the regular sprays, there are also fumigants, herbicides, insecticides and fungicides that are all aimed at killing off very specific types of pests. Each one has been formulated to be effective on a particular one; however you still need to make sure that there are no secondary effects that are passed on from their use.

Insecticides

Guide to Using Insecticides Effectively in Your Garden

If you had to ask any home owner if they have ever experienced any pests around the house, you will often find that the majority of them would have had some experience or problems with insects in one way or another. Whether it is an excessive number of flies, a massive ant colony or even cockroaches in your kitchen, you would need to find some way to get rid of them.

Insecticides are a very specific type of poison that is used to get rid of insects and any other arthropod that falls under that category. People often query the difference between a pesticide and an insecticide and the only thing that you need to know is that insecticides are specifically for insects, where a pesticide generally refers to a broader spectrum that includes poisons for plants, fungi and rodents in addition to killing just the insects.

The Difference between a Pesticide and Insecticide

Essentially you can buy a pesticide for insects and it would be referred to as an insecticide. When you buy a pesticide for plants it is known as a herbicide, and it will often be used in areas of the garden where you don’t want any plants to grow, especially weeds. When you use an insecticide, you will usually get one for all kinds of insects, but using specific ones to kill of specific things is a far better idea.

You can choose an insecticide specifically for ant or cockroaches for example and it will kill off any cockroaches and dissipate the size of any ant colony without compromising the condition of the garden. That means that you can keep the rest of the garden in top shape without affecting the other plants and animals that might be visiting your garden.

Always Use Insecticides Exactly As Directed

The application of certain insecticides can be toxic in some cases, so taking all the necessary precautions is important. Make sure you cover up completely so you don’t get any on your skin, and ensure that you cannot breathe in any fumes. If you can, always try to use the lowest strength possible so that you can minimize the collateral damage that could possibly be caused by its use.

As long as you handle the insecticides correctly and you use them for their intended purpose you should be able to control any insect pests that might be invading your garden with little hassle and minimal damage to the rest of the house and garden.

Roundup Herbicides

 

What Are Roundup Herbicides and How Do They Work?

Roundup herbicides are basically a trademarked product called Glyphosate which is used to control and kill off any unwanted plants that are growing in a specific area. It gets used by gardeners and farmers alike, being sprayed on specific areas where the weeds and invasive plants are growing. All of these herbicides work on the same basic principle by inhibiting a specific enzyme that prevents the plants from growing.

The problem is that the majority of plants use the exact same enzymes to produce specific proteins that are essential to their growth and well-being. That means you have to be careful where you use it and how often you use it because it can cause long-term sustainable damage to your entire garden or crop. On the other hand, with careful and proper use, it has been proven to be an effective combatant against weeds and invasive plant species.

When Do You Need To Use Them

A single herbicide application is a serious thing and it can kill all the plants in your garden if you are not careful. The same can be said for farmers that are planning to use it for their fields. A single application of the stuff might slow the growth of the weeds, but any plants located in the vicinity will also be affected by it and they may even die.

Even exposure to the person using is harmful and can cause a variety of side-effects that include endocrine disruption all the way through to cancer. Pro-longed exposure can even cause death, so it is important that you only use these herbicides as instructed and with the appropriate gear to makes sure you are protected. The fact that it inhibits an enzyme means that it can be used sparingly without causing any long term damage to the plants you want to keep.

That includes crops for farmers, because they still need to ensure that their crops stay alive, long after they have sprayed the place for weeds and other invasive plants.

Roundup Herbicides That Always Work

It is only through the correct application that you can fully contain weeds and invaders. Roundup is one of the most effective herbicides available in the market to date, and it has even resulted in the production or breeding of plant strains that are immune to its effects. That way they can keep the crops completely clear without the hassle of losing the entire crop.

Pesticides Used in Farming

Why Pesticides are used in Farming

The farming industry has a constant challenge in fighting off pests that threaten the health and quality of their crops and with the recent advancements in science and technology, the product choices have become even more challenging than before. There are a lot of pesticides used in farming and the product you choose all depends on your individual needs and your specific environment.

There are two forms of pesticides used in farming, namely organic and synthetic. Although most people seem to buy the synthetic type, it is recommended to use the organic types as they are more environmentally friendly and safer for the people and their surroundings. Organic products are also more suitable for residential environments and people with pets, and the benefit of these products is that you do not necessarily have to use a lot of the product for it to be effective. Organic products are by far the best option to go with if you have a smaller farm, or if you are going to use this to rid your home and garden from pests.

Safety is extremely important when you are working with pesticides. Always wear protective clothing when applying the product and make sure that the environment is free from pets and other animals. You should never use more than the recommended dosage, as over-usage can be dangerous as well. Ask your salesman for advice and tips on the product, and how to properly apply it before you buy, so that you can be sure to get the correct product at the required strength for your unique needs. Compare different products first, and have a look at the ingredients so that you know what precautions to take and how to properly apply it.

Successfully managing pests in your garden or on your farm is sometimes complex, as they can become resistant to a particular pesticide if used incorrectly or if you over-use a product. This is why the recommended dosage is so important and you should also try to use a product with little or no side effects. There are a lot of products available these days, so you are bound to get one that will suit your environment.
