Reduce glyphosate use by 70% with Nomix Dual
One application of Nomix Dual per year will control weeds and regrowth for several months afterwards
24 October 2023
Local authorities and other amenity professionals are increasingly looking for alternatives to traditional chemical spraying. Whilst these can reduce pesticide usage, they are often costly, less effective, and can raise other concerns around safety and environmental impact. The Nomix Total Droplet Control system offers a range of benefits when compared to both conventional application of glyphosate and some of the alternative approaches being offered.
- Up to 70% reduction in glyphosate applied through an annual spray programme (based on grams of active ingredient/hectare)
- Carefully targeted herbicide application at reduced volumes with enhanced public, operator, and environmental safety
- Reduced costs using Nomix Dual residual herbicide, meaning fewer applications are needed compared to traditional glyphosate applications
- No product mixing is required, no water is needed for dilution, and there is no requirement for diesel/petrol generators to carry out the service
Nomix Dual is unique in being the only residual herbicide approved in the UK and Ireland for application on hard surfaces, including kerb edges, highways, streets and pavements. This is a recognition of its environmental profile and low volume of residual active ingredient (20 grams/hectare) required to deliver long-lasting control.
One application of Nomix Dual per year will control weeds present at the point of application and control regrowth for several months afterwards. This reduces the need for further applications of glyphosate, reducing overall volumes applied when viewed across the growing season.
A single application also reduces operational inputs. As a result, the costs associated with weed control can be reduced whilst delivering a reduction in herbicide usage.
Achieve a reduction in glyphosate application
By using Nomix Dual, the requirement for a further application of glyphosate is dramatically reduced. Where three sprays of conventional glyphosate annually are replaced with one application of Nomix Dual, followed by one further application of Nomix TDC Hilite, glyphosate use is reduced by around 53%. Where two sprays of conventional glyphosate annually are replaced with a single Nomix Dual application, glyphosate use can be reduced by 70%.
