Lintur - purpose and description of the herbicide

The drug Lintur is an effective contact-acting herbicide for dealing with dicotyledonous weeds on lawns. Lintur, entering the plant through a leaf plate, disrupts its natural metabolism in it, blocking protein synthesis, which leads to death. A weed plant, fading, does not lose its green color, which allows you to maintain a high decorative lawn even after chemical treatment.

Herbicide Lintur greatly facilitates the fight against all weeds (dandelion, buttercup, mountaineer, plantain, white mar, chamomile, beetle, wild radish, etc.) found on lawn covers.

It is important to remember that on the lawn of white clover and Moorish lawn Lintour continuous spray can not be used.

Drain the contents of the solution with Lintur and use near the pond is prohibited.

Received widespread use on an industrial scale when used on cereals - wheat, rye, barley, buckwheat, oats, etc.

The advantages of using the drug Lintur:

- protects crops and lawns of cultivated monocotyledons for a long time from weeds
- simplifies harvesting (without additional purification from weed seeds)
- effective work with a low consumption rate (often with a single treatment for the warm season)
- cost effective

When complying with agrotechnology and qualified processing, Lintur continuously retains its protective properties from 8 to 10 weeks.

Features of use of Lintur on lawns:
Processing - in the morning or evening, in windless dry weather.
The first year of life of the lawn - the use of herbicide after the third mowing
The action of the drug is more effective if the lawn is watered and fed.
Do not work in cold weather at air temperatures below + 5 C.
Two optimal periods for processing are 1. The end of May and the beginning of June and 2. The end of August.

Fluid flow rate - 1.8 g / 5 l / 100m2. Working solution is not subject to storage.
Hazard class - 3. Low-hazard for bees.
One bag of 1.8 grams of the drug is diluted in 5 liters of water - per 100 m2.

Instructions, recommendations for storage, use and transportation, Lintur herbicide safety measures for the destruction of weeds on the lawn are detailed on the packaging.

How glyphosate works

When it hits a leaf, the drug penetrates the plant and is transferred through the vascular bundles with juice to the root zone. I will not dwell on the mechanism of the drug, who are interested, you can search the Internet. The key phrase “when getting on the sheet” means that if there is no leaf surface, it is useless to work with it, it does not work through the soil. Although, of course, there are soil herbicides, but, as a rule, you cannot meet them in free sale, and they are also used in other cultures. The second. It should be borne in mind that this is a drug of continuous action and it doesn’t care to kill if it’s a cultivated plant or a weed. It is just necessary to close well what is necessary to preserve and not to allow hit. The drug works for quite a long time (2 weeks to 90-100% of the effect), it depends a lot on weather conditions. The first signs may appear after three days, or after a week, so do not panic. It decomposes quite quickly in the soil, although, of course, a certain amount is present for quite a long time, but it does not affect the subsequent sowing (sometimes, if necessary, processing can be carried out after sowing, before the emergence of the main crop). The main advantage of the drug is the defeat of the root system of unwanted vegetation, i.e. then you will not have to manually try to pull out all the roots from the soil. If they work in the fall, then in the spring for quite a long time the land will be pristinely clean, until, of course, the seeds of annual weeds from the topsoil begin to germinate. Of the minuses, besides what is listed above, I would note the resistance to the preparation of some broadleaf (dicotyledonous) perennial weeds, it just takes good grains. Selective herbicides based on 2,4 D, dicamba, sulfonylurea are usually added to expand the spectrum. It would also be nice to add some nitrogen fertilizers (a teaspoon of ammonium nitrate or urea (carbamide) per 3 liters of water / 1 hectare, or a table for 10 liters of water) and some adhesive, the same liquid soap to the working solution of the drug. eg. Adding nitrogen activates life processes in the plant, and the absorption of the drug is faster. Do not use the drug in the dry period, when sap flow in the plant is slow, the effect will be noticeably lower. The last rule also applies to selective herbicides, and it is possible to do much harm by conducting treatments during the dry season with selective herbicides, the effect will be exactly the opposite. By and large, the use of herbicides should be considered an inevitable "evil" when growing a lawn, of course, I would like not to use them at all, but it is very difficult to get a quality lawn in the first year of its cultivation, especially if it is a bluegrass lawn. By flow "Roundup." All drugs at a concentration of 360g / l, or 36% are applied at the rate of 5-6 l / ha or 50-60 g / stav, if the concentration is higher, such as Tornado or Hurricane, then 40gr / sotka. Why you should not neglect these regulations? Increasing the dose will lead to such an effect as “desiccation”, when the tip “burned out” very quickly, and the root did not reach, and the main goal was to defeat the root system. When is it better to apply it. It is better to make two treatments, the first, when you plan to remove all vegetation from a certain area, which will later be used for lawn. Then there is soil preparation, leveling, rolling and already before sowing, you can make a provocation of weed germination after waiting for some time, and maybe it will work out and re-process it, but if there are no grass weeds (couch grass), you can not do it. But if they did, then it is better not to cultivate the soil deeply (otherwise, pull out weed seeds from the depth to the surface) only with a rake to walk before sowing.

Selective herbicides

It was not for nothing that I dwelt on the rules for the use of pesticides in the territory of the Russian Federation. According to the “Catalog”, the selective herbicides allowed for use on lawns are “Lintur”, “Lontrel”, “Propolol” and a few other products with a similar ai. U Lontrela dv - Kloperalid, mainly 30% or 300g / l., But there are also 75% in the form of VRH (water-soluble granules), plus a dozen more drugs with a different name. Lintur and Propolol is a mixture of Dicamba with Sulfanilurea, both work equally well, the drug is stronger than Lontrell in the fight against perennials. And it's all. However, in Europe, the USA and many other countries of selective herbicides used on lawns, there are dozens, with the most varied variants of the active substance and many combined. Why do we have so, you ask? The fact is that the process of registration of a particular drug in the “Catalog” is quite lengthy and costly, and given the industrial volume of areas occupied by lawn production, many pesticide companies do not want to risk and bear these costs. Another thing - cereals or potatoes. Although the grass in the composition of the lawn in their biology are cereal winter type, as well as, and winter wheat. Now in more detail. For the most part, selective herbicides are biologically active substances that inhibit or, on the contrary, accelerate the production of a particular enzyme, or affect chemical processes in a plant cell. They are called selective because they have a depressant effect on some cultures, while others do not perceive them. Accordingly, if these herbicides are applied on lawns, then they do not have any effect on grass grasses in the dose in which they are recommended, and dicotyledon or broadleaf weeds are inhibited. As a rule, each drug has its own, limited range of weeds, on which it affects, some are better, some are worse. The combination of several drugs expands this range, of course, provided that no drugs with the same active ingredient but different trade names are used. This is called "tank mix." To create a tank mixture preparations are taken in the same dosage as for individual use. There are limitations regarding the compatibility of the preparations, the quality of the water used, the preparative form and several other parameters. Lintour and Lontrel are compatible. However, there is a small nuance, for example, Lintur is produced in the form of water-dispersible granules, which dissolve in water rather slowly, and before making a solution of the drug, you must first dissolve the required amount in a small volume of water, shaking it well, and then adding it to the total capacity . This is called creating a “mother liquor”.

Terms of application

If you take into account all the parameters (not hot, not cold, not dry, not excessively wet, the plants are in the active growth phase), then it turns out that there are not so many optimal herbicides, specifically two, this is the middle of May - the beginning of June and Aug. Sept. It is also necessary to take into account the phase of development of weed and lawn. This means that after flowering, many weeds are not susceptible to herbicides, and the lawn at a young age should not be treated, at least up to 3-4 mowing (if you are not sure, do a trial treatment somewhere on the edge, where there is no noticeably). It is also necessary to take into account the weather conditions (no rain for 2 hours after treatment, no wind, so as not to demolish the drug on other plants), it is best to carry out treatment after 6 pm, when the wind subsides and the sun is not active and, accordingly, a drop on the sheet does not dry out immediately, but spreads on the sheet. Ideally, herbicides should be used only in extreme cases, and then, if there are a lot of perennial weeds, and there is no other way to get rid of them. It is much more appropriate to use agrotechnical methods for weed control, such as, for example, frequent mowing, sparse but abundant watering followed by a good drying of the lawn. When preparing the soil for sowing or laying, use a rake harrow when the weeds are in the seedling phase. The truth is, there are particularly malicious comrades among weeds, which are very difficult to fight with, first of all these are grass or monocotyledonous weeds, since they are of the same family with herbs that make up the lawn, and indeed, having such “relatives” does not need enemies. This, for example, creeping wheat grass, annual bluegrass, chicken millet, hedgehog team, timothy and many others. The second group - herbicide-resistant dicotyledonous weeds, as a rule, creeping, such as various types of Veronica, ivybudrachislichnaya, monkeys, etc. How to act in this case? Again agricultural technology. A healthy lawn, which has plenty of nutrients, is properly watered and regularly mowed in strength by itself, gradually thickening, squeezing the weeds, of course, this process is not fast. With bush cereals such as a hedgehog, timothy can be fought by dot injections of the same “round” in the center of the bush with the help of a self-made applicator, with a couch grass the same number is problematic. With the second group, one can make several treatments with the same Lintour, gradually weakening the weed. Essential remark: it is not the amount, but the concentration of the active substance in the solution that works. In the "Catalog", by the way, the dosage of Lintur for use in personal subsidiary farming is indicated at the rate of 1.8gr per 5 liters of water, which is probably done taking into account the "professionalism" of consumers. Although the line above for use on lawns on an industrial scale, the consumption of working fluid indicates 200-300 l / ha (2-3l / weaving, an average of 2.5 liters / weaving), it is easy to guess that the concentration in industrial use is 2 times higher.

Conclusions can do yourself. In any case, it is better to consult with professionals. And finally. Apply or not to apply herbicides or other chemicals in their own area, everyone decides, of course, himself. But if you decide to use, often look in the "Catalog" before applying a particular drug, carefully read the regulations for the use of the drug (dates, doses, features of use, when you can go to the site to work). Work only with proper equipment designed for this purpose, do not hesitate to consult and please observe safety precautions when working with any pesticides, we have one life!

Herbicide Benefits

The drug has the following advantages:

  • allows for a long period to protect crops and lawn grass from weeds,
  • makes the harvesting process simpler because it does not have to perform additional cleaning of weeds from the seeds,
  • has a low consumption rate
  • economical
  • does not provoke phytotoxicity,
  • quite selective to the cultures to be sprayed,
  • one treatment is enough,
  • you can not mix it with other herbicides,
  • not dangerous to people and animals (there are a number of restrictions on the use of the drug near the fish farms).

Mechanism of action

The drug has an impact on both the ground part of the weed, and its root system. Already a few hours after the penetration of active substances into the plant, its development and growth cease. After about 10 days, the result of the treatment becomes noticeable to the naked eye: pale leaves and sluggish stems. After 2-3 weeks, the weeds die completely. The protective effect of this herbicide lasts a maximum of 8 weeks.

How to prepare a working solution

To prepare the treatment solution, it is necessary to fill the tank with water to a fourth part. Then measure the required dose of herbicide in a measuring cup and add it to the tank. The solution should be thoroughly stirred with a mixer, then add water until the tank is completely filled. The solution is suitable for use within 24 hours. The average consumption of the drug is 0.12-0.18 l / ha, the consumption of the finished product is 250-300 g / ha.

When and how to process

Spraying of plants is recommended in the morning or in the evening when there is no strong wind. If you carry out the event in dry time, in cold weather, or after the end of the flowering period of weeds, the effectiveness of the drug is significantly reduced. If there are sharp fluctuations in temperature at night and day, the treatment of plants is better to postpone.

It is best to carry out the processing during the growing season of weeds, when it will be 2-6 sheets.


A proven and reliable manufacturer of the herbicide is LLC “GREEN PHARMACY OF THE GARDENER” LLC.

Herbicide "Lintur" quickly and effectively help you get rid of weeds. The main thing is to follow the instructions for use and properly spray the plants.

Composition, release form, container
