Chemical Weed Control

Effective Chemical Weed Control

As a farmer or business owner, effective chemical weed control is essential to the health of your crops and the success of your business. With so many different products available on the market today, the choice might be difficult to make, but with professional assistance you will get the perfect product that will eliminate your weeds and allow your crops to continue to grow healthy and strong.

Weeds are always competing with your crops for light and water, and during this process they might release dangerous chemicals that can be harmful and destructive. It might negatively influence crop growth, and also reduce the quality and appearance of the products. Poorly managed weeds can reduce your crop growth by as much as 80%, so effective measures are definitely needed. Chemical weed control refers to the use of products such as pesticides to control weed growth; these pesticides are basically chemical formulations that are specifically formulated to target weeds and to eliminate them from your grass, fields, or crops. These products are very effective and also essential in almost any farming environment.

Another reason why chemical control is necessary is because manual hand labour can become very expensive over time and pulling out weeds are not as effective as completely eliminating them completely and preventing them from growing again. In cases where chemicals alone will not entirely solve the problem, other measures might be necessary. If you have a very extensive weed problem, you might need to treat your soil first, before planting more crops so that the soil is perfect for your plants without providing a breeding ground for weeds.

It is important to remember that all herbicides will not work on every type of plant. There are products that have been designed for specific plants alone, so make sure that you get the correct type of product and ask a professional if you are not sure what product to buy. Specific herbicides might only control specific weeds, so if it is not effective, you might have bought the wrong product initially. Secondly, the dosages need to be correct. If you apply too little, it might not be effective; applying too much herbicide can quickly become damaging and the weeds can even start to resist the product with continuous incorrect usage. It is therefore important to always ensure that you apply the correct amount of product to the affected area.

Laeveld Agrochem is a leading supplier of herbicides, pesticides, insecticides, and other chemical weed control products. The company was established more than 20 years ago in 1991 and assists farmers and businesses across the country with effective pest control solutions.
