Product Description

Horsetail / Marestail is a weed that is particularly troublesome to control as its roots are both deep and fast growing. Horsetail can reach up to 1m high during the summer months. Horsetail is difficult to control by hand as it can re grow from the smallest of rhizomes left in the soil. To control Horsetail you will need a weed killer specifically designed to target Horsetail such as Diamond.

Diamond replaces the popular product 'Pearl'.

Diamond is a brand new product EXCLUSIVE to Agrigem which offers excellent results on many tough weeds including horsetail. It is a soluble concentrate containing 160g/l 2,4-D + 240g/l glyphosate. 

This horsetail killer is also available in a smaller pack size  Diamond 1L

Diamond is one of the few products on the market that will successfully control Horsetail & Marestail. Previous products that controlled this difficult weed containing glufosinate-ammonium are no longer permitted for sale in the U.K making Diamond the go to product following its launch in spring 2019.

It is approved for use on Amenity Vegetation, Orchards, Hard Surfaces (Railway Ballast), and Green Cover not being used for crop production. Once on the foliage, the 2,4 - D will break down leaf tissue which enables the glyphosate to translocate around the plant far quicker and deeper. It will deliver total weed control to both grasses and broadleaved weeds, controlling them quicker and penetrating deeper into the root system than glyphosate alone. For increased results, mix with Activate-g 1L to penetrate waxy & hairy leaves.

To avoid missing or re-treating areas we always recommend using in mix with our biodegradable Blue Dye
