Have sprayed advanced weeds in bananas 6 days ago. How long before I can expect a result?
First, we would like to inform you that Fusilade II Herbicide is not labled to be used on or around any edibles such as bananas. However, the time of kill depends on a few different variables such as the specific weed you are targeting, the outside temperature, as well as the ground temperature. The hotter it is outside the quicker the kill and you also have to be sure that the ground temperature is atleast 55 degrees. If below 55 degrees then the target weeds will be dormant and a kill will not be likely. Although, weed growth is halted and within just one week there will be loss of vigor, yellow and/or reddening, and eventual death of the treated grass weeds.
