The Product

WeedMaster TS470 is an efficient high surfactant loaded, twin salt formulation that has improved plant uptake and enhanced compatibility when mixing with other products.


What is Twin Salt™ Technology?

The key to the exceptional performance of WeedMaster TS470 is Twin Salt Technology, a unique combination of potassium and mono-ammonium salts developed by Nufarm. The combination of the two salts and a tailored surfactant package delivers:

  • Faster brownout,
  • Low viscosity thus making it easier to pour
  • Excellent stability at low temperatures,
  • Excellent tank mix compatibility.

The result is an easy to use, effective product for broad spectrum weed control.



Rainfall occurring up to 6 hours after application may reduce effectiveness. Heavy rainfall within two hours may require a repeat treatment. The addition of Pulse® Penetrant can reduce the rainfree period.


Post Treatment Management

A withholding period for grazing stock is not required. However, it is recommended that grazing treated plants is delayed for three days after treatment of annual weeds or seven days if perennial weeds are present to ensure absorption of WeedMaster TS470.

Use Recommendations

There are a large number of use recommendations on the label. Following is a snapshot of key crop/use situations. For all situations please refer to the label for label rates, and application instructions.


Use Comments
Pasture – Direct (Spot) Application WeedMaster TS470 is non-selective and may damage or kill any plant in the sprayed area. Retreatment and/or pasture improvement may be necessary to restrict seedling re-establishment.
Pasture Renovation WeedMaster TS470 may be used to control existing pasture species prior to re-seeding pasture or establishing other crops.
General Weed Control For handgun mix 800ml of WeedMaster TS470 in 100L of water. For knapsack use 8mlof WeedMaster TS470 per 1L of water. Apply to completely wet foliage, but not to runoff.
Orchards / Vines  For pasture use 3.1L/ha. Where only annual weeds occur apply 766mL – 1.5L/ha. Use the low rate for seedling annual weeds and the higher rate for larger weeds.


The application rates of WeedMaster TS470 are lower than those for standard 360g/L formulations so it is important to check the label for the appropriate rate.
