Tailout is a non-selective herbicide, acting primarily by foliar contact but with some translaminar movement, which can occur within the aerial part of the plants. Tailout kills all green tissue but does not harm mature bark. Deep-rooted perennial weeds will regrow.

Tailout is approved to be used for preparing sports turf for line-marking, and controls the grasses and broad-leaved weeds.

Heading Ribbon EdgeA foliar contact herbicide for use as a band application to
  • Fence lines - spray applications must be made within 50 cm of fence line.
  • Managed amenity turf for line-marking preparation.

Ideal when you wish to burn out the vegetation quickly, economically but don’t want to kill perennial species. Used in a similar way to paraquat to burn off the vegetation without killing the roots, Tailout is an ideal preparation before seeding, or a quick clean-up on a shrub bed on ephemeral weeds that appear when the soil has been disturbed during the growing season. A perfect alternative to glyphosate: cleaning up weeds without killing the plant.

Heading Ribbon EdgeAs a band or spot application to
  • Natural surfaces not intended to bear vegetation.
  • Permeable surfaces overlaying soils.
  • Hard surfaces.
