Using a glyphosate herbicide such as Vantage provides non-selective vegetation control, i.e. ends growth of almost all species of weeds, grasses and brush. This provides a management tool for preventing unwanted vegetation buildup on and around trackbeds, airports, industrial sites and fencelines. Non-selective herbicides can be a safe, simple, cost effective alternative to mechanical control methods such as trimming, mowing and burning. thistles or disturbing their root systems by digging can actually stimulate growth and spread.A properly timed herbicide application, however, can thoroughly control the root system to prevent recurring growth and the need to spend more money on mowing.

Safety. Vantage herbicide is also safe to operators and the

environment. Glyphosate has a low toxicological impact on humans and wildlife.The surfactant in Vantage promotes rapid uptake by plants, minimizing contact with anything else. On contact with the soil, glyphosate binds very tightly to soil particles and there is very low leaching potential to groundwater. In the soil, glyphosate is degraded by natural processes into harmless compounds. Vantage is a product you can use with confidence, because we at Dow AgroSciences strive to reduce risk and continuously improve through effective management systems. Our Emergency Response Tech Advisors are on call 24 hours a day 7 days a week in the unlikely event of an emergency. Effective management includes container recovery, product and distributor reviews, and corrections regarding the misuse and mishandling of product.

Efficiency. Application units can be mounted on trucks or

quads to reduce man-hours for vegetation control. This also reduces the time that vegetation interrupts facility use, an important factor in areas such as aircraft runways.Application by simple backpack sprayer also allows vegetation control in smaller or more constricted areas.

Effectiveness. Herbicide application can be far more effective in many situations, for example in getting rid of perennial plants such as thistles and quackgrass. Cutting the top parts of these plants is only a short-term solution, because perennials regenerate from their extensive root system. Mowing
