Resolva Zero weedkiller is it any good?

madpenguinmadpenguin Isle of WightPosts: 2,448
I have just finished my spray bottle of Resolva Weedkiller (with Glyphosate) and want to move away from this.
Has anyone tried Resolva Zero weedkiller (no Glyphosate) and were the results any good?

    Just curious, what's the need? I have never needed weedkiller, it would probably take an alien invasive triffid such as Japanese knotweed before I'd consider it. Anyway, I am genuinely curious whether the target is something like that.

    I don't use much but sometimes it is the only thing that gets rid of persistent weeds in paving etc.
    Last bottle lasted 4 years.
    Manual weeding is obviously preferable but not always possible.
    Just wondering if anyone had used the Resolva Zero.

    Is an article comparing the two active ingredients, zero will only kill the green parts it will work the same as spraying them with vinegar.

    Sorry, @Skandi, but I wouldn't trust those pro-industry people! Read more at https://usrtk.org/hall-of-shame/why-you-cant-trust-the-american-council-on-science-and-health/

    As you can't buy Glyphosate in France anymore, I use it on the gravel drive, I thought I'd try a no Glyphosate weed killer on the drive. It was brilliant - at first. Every weed was dried up and dead the following day or two - but a week later it had all started growing again. And the weed killer was expensive.

    We have a weed burner. They do come back up, but no chemicals. Runs off camping gas.

    Nothing works like glyphosate. I think used judiciously, it's OK.

    I agree.I don't intend to slosh it about and a 1litre spray bottle can last me at least 5 years or so.
    If weeds can be removed in another way I always prefer to do so,but there are pernicious weeds,horsetail,bindweed,ground elder and dandelions in odd places where only glyphosate weedkiller works.

    .......off to buy my Roundup tomorrow!

    I found here a little comparison of weed killers, Roundup among other variants it looks good, but there are 2 cons: a relatively small area of coverage and, as they say, a strong chemical smell
    Just looked at all those weedkillers and 4 out of the 5 were Glyphosate!
    Could it be because it actually works?

    A relatively small area of coverage sounds good to me .... don't want to go spraying it all over the place ... and as for the smell, well it'll keep folk away while it dries.
