Default Roundup Zero effectiveness on Kikuyu grass lawn

If the Kikuyu hasn't had much water lately, I'd water it the day before
you plan to spray it, the plants don't seem to take up the glysophate
(sp?) as efficiently during prolonged bouts of dry weather in my
experience.

I've been able to reduce the recommended dose by a third if the previous
day was wet, and the following day is drizzly and overcast, or has very
light rain. Perfect conditions to apply roundup...


I'm surprised. I really am. Well, that's great cos I appiled the roundup
20ml per litre - and the next day we had some very slight rain and it was
generally overcast.
