Preparations and remedies for weeds


Fertile soil in the garden or in the country is not only a guarantee of a good harvest, but also a favorable place for the spread of weeds. Weeds have to be fought all the time, but they all grow and grow. There are several ways to reduce this harmful vegetation: using mechanical, biological and chemical means.

Mechanical methods and means

The most famous and frequently used mechanical method of weed control is ordinary weeding and digging of soil, after which the remnants of the root of the plants are removed by hand. This simple and safe method is effective for a short time, and even very time consuming. Having got rid of some plants, others grow to replace them. The land plot cannot be empty for a long time, weeds quickly master the vacated territory, as they are unpretentious and hardy crops.

Another way to combat weeds is to treat harmful plantations with high temperatures (fire, boiling water or hot air). This procedure requires a gas torch, blowtorch, steamer or hair dryer. The aboveground parts of the weeds must be processed 3-4 times per season, then the root part will lose its strength and will not give new shoots. Even perennials such as thistle, dandelion and burdock will leave the garden alone for a while.

The advantages of these methods of struggle are in the minimum harm to the surrounding nature, and the disadvantages are the repeated repetition of the procedure to obtain the desired effect.

Biological preparations and agents

Since plants cannot live without light, it is necessary to use this feature as a means of weed control. It is recommended to cover the land plot with weeds with a dense material that does not transmit light, and leave it as long as possible (from 2 to 12 months). The aerial part will die, and the root will begin to overheat. After removing such a covering, the land will be clean and free, but not for long. The surviving roots will recover very quickly and give new shoots.

The previous method will become more effective if, before covering the weeds, loosen the area with a flat cutter, and then moisten the soil with a bio-solution containing beneficial microorganisms (for example, "Renaissance"). Beneficial bacteria in the soil will quickly find food in the form of damaged roots and thereby clear the area of ​​weeds for a longer period.

A proven and reliable method is soil mulching. Mulch is applied to the weeded out land plot immediately after the emergence of vegetable or ornamental crops. She won't give the weeds a chance.

Sowing siderates (for example, oats, mustard, rye) on the vacant garden beds suppresses all weeds as much as possible, and their green mass is used in the garden as fertilizer or as a mulch cover.

The advantages of these methods of struggle are in safety and efficiency, and the disadvantages are that effective results must be expected for a rather long period.

Chemicals and products

Herbicides are the most common chemicals used in weed control. Among their many types, there are selective drugs (they are dangerous for certain plants) and continuous-action drugs (they destroy all plants in a row).

Chemical preparations with a selective effect should be used only in areas with plantations of one plant species, which the drug will not cause any harm. It will completely destroy only weeds that grow around.

Chemicals with a general effect are capable of destroying all vegetation to which they will be specially applied or fall through through negligence. It is very important to strictly adhere to the norms and dosages indicated in the instructions or on the packaging, and precautions when working with drugs (for example, the use of rubber gloves).

It is recommended to use chemical solutions only in dry and calm weather in order to avoid their spread to decorative, vegetable or fruit and berry plantations, which will completely die after such treatment. Dry weather is necessary for the drug to fully fulfill its chemical effect on plants, and its effectiveness does not decrease due to the ingress of water or rain drops. In order for the solution to penetrate into all organs and parts of weeds, it takes an average of 3-6 hours. At a low concentration, the drug loses its effectiveness, and at a high concentration, it increases several times.

Within a certain period of time after chemical treatment (from 5 to 30 days), weeds may gradually die off. During this period, it is not recommended to carry out any work on the treated area (for example, digging up the soil or mowing grass). This method of control allows you to destroy not only the aerial part of harmful plants, but also most of their roots.

Once in the soil, herbicides do not accumulate in it, but break down into safe substances that can no longer harm the environment. Approximately five days after the treatment of the beds, you can start planting or sowing various crops. One of the main substances in the composition of chemicals is glyphosate. This substance does not have a negative effect on seed germination and on animals, but it poses a real threat to fish and insects.

Among gardeners and summer residents, the following means are considered the most common: "Glyphos", "Tornado", "Lazurit", "Rap" and "Agrokiller".

The advantages of these methods of struggle are in obtaining an excellent result within a very short time (from 3 to 6 hours) and for a long time, and the disadvantages are the wrong choice of means or an inaccurate dosage of the drug can destroy cultivated plants, as well as harm animals and humans.

For those who do not welcome chemical treatment and are suspicious of such "harmful and dangerous" drugs, it is recommended to prepare your own homemade "chemical" remedy. A herbicide prepared with your own hands from improvised means available in almost every home is very effective and is able to destroy harmful weeds as much as possible. It contains: 900 ml of water, 60 ml of vodka (or moonshine) and forty milliliters of liquid dishwashing detergent. If you treat weeds with such a solution in hot sunny weather, then vodka (or rather, alcohol) will destroy the protective wax surface of plants and they will die from dehydration under the influence of sunlight.

How to destroy weeds on your site


Good weed control. Vinegar with salt: instructions, reviews. The best weed killer

Mechanical removal of weeds in the garden is very laborious and often not very efficient. After a while, plants appear on the beds again, depriving garden crops of the nutrients they need so much. The thing is that even with the most careful weeding, small roots of weeds still remain in the ground, giving growth. There is only one way out of this situation - to use a special chemical preparation designed to destroy unwanted plants in the garden or in the yard entirely. Such a weed killer is called a herbicide and is sold in any specialty store. There is also a less effective, but less harmful for the soil and cultivated plants "folk" analogue of such drugs - ordinary vinegar with salt.

Herbicides are sold at retail for private household plots (personal subsidiary plots) - small packaging, low-toxic and easy to use. Bulk herbicides are of interest to large organizations whose processing facilities have large areas.

Herbicides refer to a chemical method of weed control - they are widely used in agriculture, forestry, construction, landscaping and other areas related to green plants and plantings.Without their use, it is difficult to imagine crops of more cultivated crops in the world that are clean from weeds. On lawns, the use of herbicides in combination with regular mowing and mechanical weeding allows you to get perfectly flat, highly decorative, green carpets in the shortest possible time. Those. the correct use of herbicides accelerates good results with a minimum investment.

Price.
It varies in the global and Russian markets. Recent trends show that the cost of herbicides is insignificant every year, but increases - on average, by 5-10%. Usually they want to buy herbicides closer to the spring-summer, sowing, season - increasing demand gives rise to an increase in prices for the desired herbicide. Imported weed killers, moreover, are tied to the exchange rate of the main world currencies - the dollar and the euro - therefore the prices for herbicides from abroad are also tied to the currency. You can buy herbicides in bulk, or you can buy it at retail - from one bag of factory packaging.

Application.
For the destruction of weeds, it must be economically justified, with strict adherence to safety precautions, the use of personal protective equipment (gloves, glasses, etc.) and serviceable equipment (sprayers, tanks, booms), strictly regulated. Instructions for the use of herbicides must be indicated on each package of the drug. If necessary, instructions are given to workers and personnel.

You can find on sale two types of herbicides (weed killers):

  • Continuous herbicides - affect all types of plants, inhibiting (slowing down) their development and growth. The action of the herbicide manifests itself in the form of yellowing, blackening, wilting, drying out, rotting, etc. Continuous herbicides include drugs such as Roundup, Tornado, Agrokiller, Hurricane Forte, Sniper and others.
  • Selective herbicides (for example, for corn, potatoes, for a lawn) - they act selectively, without affecting the main crop and destroying weeds with a similar effect (as with continuous herbicides) - they are used on vegetables, grain crops, lawns. Selective herbicides include Lintur, Lontrel 300-D, Lazurit, Hacker and others.

Treatment.
It is carried out at an air temperature of 10 degrees Celsius in dry, clear and calm weather. If we are talking about soil herbicides, then the introduction of herbicides into the soil depends not only on external climatic factors, but also on the cultivated crop. The regulations for the use of herbicides are described in detail in the accompanying documentation for the preparations. All herbicides have a full package of documents allowing the sale of herbicides in Russia - a declaration of conformity, a certificate of conformity and a certificate of state registration.

Consumption.
It is different - the stronger the active substance affects the processed harmful object, the smaller the amount of the drug is needed for processing. During treatments, in order to avoid accidents, the safety rules, the timing of herbicide treatment, the concentration of ready-made solutions, the choice of the cultivated crop and the harmful object should be strictly observed. All the necessary information can be read on the labels and booklets for herbicides or clarified by calling the reference numbers.

Some herbicides are used in tank mixtures with other drugs - growth regulators, fertilizers, insecticides, fungicides. This is necessary to reduce the pesticide load on plants, the consumption rate of the drug, the amount of the finished solution, and reduce the cost of the material and technical base. The economic efficiency of using herbicides is increased.

A large number of large global and domestic manufacturers of pesticides, including herbicides, producing a wide range of preparations for weed control, numbering more than 500 items, are currently actively working on the Russian agricultural market. Correct selection and competent advice can increase the efficiency of herbicide use up to 100%.


Tilling the soil of the garden from weeds: folk methods

But do not forget that herbicides are chemical agents, which means that they remain toxic to the environment, posing a threat to bees and beneficial insects, domestic animals.

Alternatively, you can prepare the solution yourself - this will take a little time and simple tools at hand. There are several options for a home remedy.

  1. Spray making. To do this, mix in a container 400 ml of white vinegar, three tablespoons of lemon juice, as well as 30-40 ml of alcohol and two tablespoons of ordinary detergent. After that, pour the prepared mixture into a plastic spray bottle and carry out the processing of the earth. Most importantly, try to prevent the prepared mixture from getting on useful plants and crops.
  2. You can use regular salt. The only remark is that it can be used only where you do not plan to plant anything in the next few years. Salt has the ability to destroy weeds, while absorbing into the ground, making it impossible for any plants to grow.

There are several ways to use salt:

  • Dissolve 150 ml of salt in a liter of hot water, pour the mixture into a bottle and start processing.
  • Water the weeds, sprinkle the garden with salt and moisten again.

Knowing how to cultivate the land from weeds, you can begin to cleanse your site from parasitic plants.


Selective herbicide "2,4-D"

This drug is considered the most effective selective agent. It has been used for weed control since 1940. To date, more than 22 herbicides have been created on the basis of "2,4-D" and are successfully used in agriculture. The main active ingredient of this drug is 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid. It is a white crystalline substance. The herbicide "2,4-D" is moderately toxic and belongs to the second class of hazard.

The growth of weeds after treatment with this preparation stops within a few hours. The herbicide "2.4-D" is produced in the form of 50 and 61 percent solutions, as well as 70 and 72 percent concentrates. It is mainly used to control annual dicotyledonous weeds in wheat and corn.


How to properly treat potatoes with herbicides

For ease of use and dosage, herbicides are produced in different forms - powder, liquid, granules.

When processing, you must follow the rules for working with drugs:

  1. The product is diluted in a glass container.
  2. The solution is prepared immediately before use.
  3. For heavy soils, the maximum dose of the drug is suitable, for sandy soils - the minimum.
  4. Do not process in the heat. The optimum air temperature is from 15 to 25 o C.
  5. Rain can weaken the effect of the herbicide, so spraying should be done at least 8 hours before.
  6. Use of protective clothing is mandatory.
  7. Smoking and eating are prohibited during the procedure.
  8. Upon completion, you must change your clothes and take a shower.
  9. Watering is carried out no earlier than 4 - 5 days after treatment.
  10. In order to avoid the addiction of potatoes to the herbicide, the drug should be changed periodically.
  11. You should choose funds that are not capable of accumulating in the soil.
