Roundup QuikPro Dry Herbicide with Diquat and Glyphosate
concentrate non-selective herbicide which combines the systemic action of
Glyphosate (active ingredient in Roundup, Rodeo, Gallup and others) with quick
knockdown power of Diquat.

Quikpro (Quickpro) is one of the newer products designed by
which has been highly anticipated by agricultural and turf industries as well as
the general public.
Roundup has long been a trusted product to use when total vegetation kill of
both weeds and grasses is needed. One of the more desirable
characteristics of Roundup is its ability to provide a quick and thorough kill
of undesirable vegetation without lingering in the soil for long periods of
time. Diquat has been added to Roundup (in this formulation) to provide
customers with a faster kill. Long time users of Diquat prefer its ability
to give a quick burn down of plant leaves and (as is seen with Glyphosate) its
lack of undesirable residual in surrounding soil.
Heavy herbicides such as Trimec,
Manage and Image can remain in the soil for
several weeks, making it difficult to sod or seed new lawns or plant other
desirable vegetation after a short time lapse between spraying and replanting. Glyphosate and Diquat (the active ingredients in
Quikpro herbicide) do not remain in the soil for such long periods. New
plants can usually be planted a couple of weeks after applying Quickpro
Product Description: This product is a post
emergent, systemic herbicide with no soil residual activity. It is
generally non-selective and gives broad spectrum control of many annual weeds,
perennial weeds, woody brush and trees. It is formulated as a
water-soluble granule containing surfactant and no additional surfactant is
needed or recommended. It may be applied through most standard sprayers
after dissolution and thorough mixing with water according to label directions.
Time to Symptoms: This product moves through
the plant from the point of foliage contact to and into the root system.
Visible effects on most annual weeds occur within 1 day and on most perennial
weeds in 2 days. Extremely cool or cloudy weather following treatment may
slow activity of this product and delay development of visible symptoms.
Visible effects are a quick yellowing of the foliage which advances to complete
browning of above ground growth and deterioration of underground plant parts.
Mode of Action: One of the active ingredients
in this product inhibits an enzyme found only in plants and microorganisms that
is essential to formation of specific amino acids. A second active
ingredient rapidly disrupts cell integrity of photosynthetically active tissues
in the contacted foliage. [Glyphosate kills roots; Diquat kills leaves.]
Cultural Considerations: Reduced control may
result when applications are made to annual or perennial weeds that have been
mowed, grazed or cut, and have not been allowed to re-grow to the recommended
stage for treatment.
Rainfastness: Heavy rainfall soon after
treatment application may wash this product off of the foliage and a repeat
application may be required for adequate control.
Spray Coverage: For best results, spray
coverage should be uniform and complete. Do not spray weed foliage to the
point of runoff.
No Soil Activity: Weeds must be emerged at
time of application to be controlled by this product. Weeds germinating
from seed after application will not be controlled. Un-emerged plants
arising from unattached underground rhizomes or rootstocks of perennials will
not be affected by the herbicide and continue to grow.
Compare with Roundup Pro Dry
Both Roundup Pro Dry and Quikpro contain Glyphosate,
a systemic non-selective herbicide that enters the targeted plant through the
leaves and translocates (moves through the plant) to the plant roots.
Plant roots are killed by the herbicide, therefore killing the plant.
These products are also comparable in their type of formulation and
packaging. They are dry concentrated crystals that are mixed with water to
form a solution. Boxes contain 1 packets of concentrated materials; most
people use 1 packet per gallon of water but they can be mixed stronger or weaker
than this rate.
The active ingredient in Roundup Pro Dry is 71.40% Glyphosate.
In Quikpro, the active ingredients are 73.30% Glyphosate
and 2.90% Diquat. As noted above, Glyphosate
systemic moves through plants, killing the root system. Diquat
is not a systemic herbicide but, rather, kills the plant at the leaves or
blades. Simply put, Glyphosate and Diquat combine to attack unwanted weeds
and grasses from top to bottom.
Quikpro will give a faster kill than regular
Glyphosate products. Many people prefer to mix Roundup
products with Scythe
Herbicide to achieve a faster burn-down of grasses and young weeds.
With Quikpro, using Scythe is still an option but not always needed.
