Alliance Herbicide - UPDATE 28/08/2008

Below are photographs showing the affect of Alliance Herbicide on various weed species in a vineyard located at Blewitt Springs (McLaren Vale GI), South Australia.

The yineyard had a problem with Glyphosate Resistant Annual Ryegrass. Glyphosate was becoming less effective and more costly for the grower to apply. As these photographs indicate the correct choice was made with the use of Alliance as it has been able to control the weed.

The Application was made on the 1st July 2008. The first two photographs were taken on the 18th July 2008. The day time temperature never exceeded 15 Degrees for the full 18 days.

Ryegrass 18 days after application.

Capeweed 45 days after application.
