Treating Tall Weeds with Weed Killer – Foam Herbicide for Foliar Applications to Avoid Drip, Drift, and Off-Target Spray

Treating a tall weed with herbicide or weed killer can be a challenge – especially if the target weed is near desirable plants.  Conventional sprays are difficult to control.  Fine droplets are hard to see, so it is difficult to know what you are treating with the herbicide spray.  Moreover, the fine droplets in sprays have a tendency to drift.  And, when the droplets do land on the target weed, they may bead and roll off the leaf.

This video shows an application to a perennial thistle using the Green Shoots Foam Herbicide System (link to video).   Note how precise the herbicide application is – without drift, drip, or off-target spray.  Toward the end of the video you can see the results where the weed has dead fifteen days after treatment.
