Roundup ProActive 5lt - MAPP 17380. Active Ingredients: 360g/l glyphosate.

Roundup ProActive (formerly Roundup Pro Biactive) is a foliar applied translocated herbicide developed using a new surfactant system known as Biactivator adjuvant technology. Roundup ProActive has been developed for use on weeds in hard surfaces, amenity vegetation, enclosed waters, natural surfaces which shouldn't bear vegetation, as well as land immediately adjacent to aquatic areas and open waters.

Key Benefits of Roundup ProActive
  • Unique biactive formulation gets more glyphosate into the plant
  • Hazard free label - safer for the operator, public and pets
  • Superior long term control of difficult perennial weeds
  • Biodegrades in soil and water, excellent rainfastness
  • Make the most of those precious weather windows
  • Highest levels of performance and safety
  • Preferred under COSHH
Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup ProActive, controls weeds by blocking the plant's enzyme system. These enzymes, which are present in plants, do not occur in humans, animals, birds or fish. Hence, Roundup Probio is safe to everything except green plants.

Roundup ProActive is approved for use in areas open to the public and animals, or even near water.
How Roundup ProActive works
  • For a herbicide to function it must first break through the waxy surface of the leaf and enter the plant cells.
  • This is achieved by developing a formulation containing an adjuvant or surfactant which breaks down the waxy cuticle.
  • Differences in glyphosate formulations are brought about by the different surfactants they contain.
  • Original Tallow Amine products have been superseded by Roundup ProActive.
Application Rates & Timing
Roundup ProActive provides control of a wide range of established annual grasses, annual broad leaved weeds and perennial weeds.
Boom Sprayer Rate Up to 5L per Hectare in 100L of water.
Knapsack Rate 150-500ml per 10L of water covers 1000m2
Additional Information

Roundup ProActive superior performance
Formulated using the novel Biactivator technology, Roundup ProActive is a complete product that contains two adjutants. Alone they offer excellent benefits, but in combination the synergistic effect of these two adjuvant partners ensures an outstanding performance.

Retention, uptake and translocation are enhanced; so more glyphosate gets to the growing points providing superior long-term weed control. These Biactivators increase reliability over a vast range of applications and weather conditions, particularly rainfall.

This unique formulation is protected by patents unlike most other adjutants. No other glyphosate-based products contain this patented formulation.

Roundup ProActive is environment friendly
Besides providing superior control of a wide range of weeds, Roundup ProActive has been developed with commitment and concern for the environment firmly in mind.

Roundup ProActive has been specially formulated to offer an enhanced standard of operator safety. It is not a hazardous substance as defined by COSHH, when used in accordance with the label, and it does not carry a hazard symbol. In the environment, it provides up to 100 fold improvement in safety to some of the most sensitive animal species, when compared to older glyphosate formulations.

Roundup ProActive synergistic activity
Monsanto has used two adjutants in a special combination to enhance the performance of Roundup ProActive.
  • A hydrophilic non-ionic humectant: extends the period of glyphosate uptake from the treated leaf.
  • A cationic Quaternary Ammonium Compound (QAC) which strongly binds to the leaf surface without damaging the plant cells allowing the active ingredient, glyphosate, to diffuse into the leaf with minimal stress to the plant - This ensures minimal glyphosate is locked up in the leaf ensuring maximum movement through the plant, boosting weed kill and improving reliability.
