Default Using Rosate 36

I bought a litre of Rosate 36 last year, and was delighted with the
results.

However, I have forgotten, and cannot find, the recommended dilution for
ordinary garden use - young nettles, dandelions etc.

Any thoughts?

Or pro rata, e.g. 100 ml in 5 litres, 10 ml in 500 ml. I'd go for this
higher dilution rate. Takes a bit longer to take effect but has more
time to spread through the whole plant.

Excellent. Thanks Chris. All I could find were rates per hectare or
whatever :-) My Hozelock sprayer failed, so I was delighted to find a
little O ring in the shed, which seems to have cured that problem.

Default Using Rosate 36

I just bought some this year and did a back of the fag packet calculation. I came in at about tenfold less of the concentrate for my 5l sprayer than suggested in the first reply (i.e. I thought that about 10ml of the concentrate should suffice). I will check and post my working out.

Regards. Terry.

The pumps with the O-ring on the piston quite often appear to stick and
get damaged if forced. It's worth dismantling the pump before this
happens and lub-ing the O-ring sparingly with some silicone grease to
avoid this. I have had one stick a little after some disuse following
treatment but some easy pressure on the pump freed it off.

This was after spraying a water based insecticide.

Using Gallup 360 (which I think is the same concentration) I use 25ml
per litre of water in a sprayer.

p.s. Are you sure the bottle label doesn't peel away to reveal the
instructions?

Excellent, thanks. Yes, this pump was found here in the greenhouse when
we moved in 13 years ago, and it was old then. Probably due a little
TLC.

The label does indeed peel back, and I'm sure the dilution rate must be
there somewhere, but all I could find was application rates for farms
and estates. Thought it best to ask those who use the same product on a
much smaller scale.

You can google this.

If you buy the small 10ml size bottle of this weed killer - possibly
enough for a small flower pot.

No harmful residues.


So why will nothing much grow there for a year or so?

I know this substance was previously used for malign purposes but my
understanding is that such persons now use different products instead.


The reason for using it was that it was easy to get. I used it a lot
when young, it makes me shiver now. A little bit of knowledge is a
dangerous thing - I had no idea how sensitive it was when hammering the
ends of a copper tube shut with sugar and sodium chlorate inside.

And the rocket I made with dried chlorate-soaked newspaper rolled up
inside some ally tube didn't lift off, it exploded bigly.

I know there were challenges. Someone I know as a student went to
school in Liverpool and they demolished the cycle shed, which required
a bit of calculation in the days before electronic calculators.

Funny, so did mine! I found the shrapnel a year later. Ugly

Not doing very well with thunderbird Andy sorry for personal reply.

I said I too like to aid composting of tree stumps in situ.

just add icing sugar .....

Interesting
So if you want to permanently poison e.g, a driveway, bleach should do
it and it will decay to chlorate and salt. Boiling it first will decay
it lot first.....

"Sodium hypochlorite is stable above pH 12 where the less reactive
hypochlorite is predominant and hypochlorous acid is virtually
non-existent.Decomposition is by Eq. 4 and 5.

4) 3 NaOCl = NaClO3 + 2 NaCl

5) 2 NaOCl = O2 + 2 NaClEq.

4 is the major decomposition reaction forming chlorate (ClO3-) and
chloride (Cl-). This reaction is temperature and concentration
dependent; it is not catalytic. Eq. 5 is catalytic, forming oxygen (O2)
and chloride. Trace metals such as nickel, cobalt and copper form metal
oxides, which cause catalytic decomposition. Light also catalyses this
reaction."

It was probably banned for very different reasons, like ammonia.
