Herbicide

We are responsible for weed control on all SSDC owned land and for any external grounds maintenance contracts that we undertake. 

We use a foliar applied translocated chemical called Roundup Pro Bioactive 360; this has been specially formulated to offer an enhanced safety standard for the environment and operator. It is not a hazardous substance as defined by COSHH, when used in accordance with the label, and does not carry a hazard symbol.

The chemical is applied on average 3 times a year using predominantly a CDA type applicator; this ensures that a more focused dosage of chemical can be applied safely.

All of our operatives hold the correct accreditation to carry out herbicide treatments and receive regular refresher training.
