Ballast is the ideal bare-ground herbicide for long-lasting, dual-action vegetation control.


Performance Highlights

With both PPO and ALS inhibitors, this non-selective, pre- and post-emergent solution quickly causes cell membrane destruction, slows plant growth, and prevents amino acid biosynthesis.

  • Long lasting control of 235 annual, biennial and perennial weeds, including woody plants and brush 
  • Two modes of action help manage herbicide resistant species 
  • Successful as a stand-alone product or as a tank mix partner
  • Ideal for IVM sites where long-lasting, bare-ground control is required
