Finale® 150 is a soluble concentrate formulation containing 150 g/l (13.52% w/w) glufosinate-ammonium. It is a fast acting desiccant herbicide used for controlling many grasses & broadleaved weeds, including troublesome weeds such as Horse-tail. Pearl™ can be used around the following areas; Fence lines, Natural surfaces not intended to bear vegetation, Permeable surfaces overlaying soils, Hard surfaces & Managed amenity turf for line-marking preparation.
Although it is mainly a contact herbicide, there is also some translaminar movement within the plant (moving around the leaf). This makes it a safer alternative than Roundup or Glyphosate as it will not travel down into the root of the plant. Stems of trees & shrubs are largely un-affected by a treatment of Finale® 150, but take care when spraying young green stems as some speckling may occur.
- If you want to control grass around trees, then try a graminacide called Falcon
- For smaller areas look at Pearl 500ml
- Mix in with Blue Dye to ensure no areas are missed.

On large or tough weeds two treatments may be needed, the first to kill the top growth, and the second to kill the stems or any lower leaves, the interval between treatments is usually within 14 days. For best results we would also recommend the use of a water conditoner & herbicide enhancer which is called Activate-g
