Icade® herbicide is used for controlling tough, woody and invasive weeds. It is a soluble concentrate selective herbicide which can only be used in non-crop situations such as motorway and railway embankments, roadsides and industrial areas (excluding airfields).
Icade® is very effective against weeds such as Japanese knotweed, Himalayan balsam, buddleia, hogweed and bramble. It's selective action means it will not harm wanted grasses. This new product gives hope to controlling tough invasive weeds following the withdrawal of so many other valuable products. If you are looking for something that will control broad-leaved weeds & grasses, then look at Diamond 5L.
