A good place to start a discussion like this would be by trying to get an understanding of what a weed killer is. A person who has been involved in plant care will find such an exploration on what a weed destroyer is to be superfluous, as it would be obvious to him or her what it is. But to a person who has never been involved in plant care (and there are many in today’s world where people no longer have to grow their own food), an introduction on what a weed killer is would be well in order. Indeed, there are also people involved in plant care in the parts of the world where plant-care has not yet gone hi-tech who may also not be conversant with weed destroyers; hence the need for an introduction.

A weed killer turns out to be a chemical formulation that has an effect of order weed online europe eliminating weeds whenever sprayed (or otherwise applied, as per instructions) on a particular field. A weed, by the way, is any plant growing where it is not supposed to be growing. Weeds tend to come out prominently whenever they attempt to grow alongside other (deliberately planted, useful) plants. When they do so, it means that they are in direct competition with those desirable plants for life support resources: water, soil nutrients, air and so on. It doesn’t help matters that, as an evolutionary adaptation, the weeds seem to have become more aggressive than most of the domesticated plants in their competition for life support resources. This means that unchecked, they have the potential to eventually decimate the desirable plants in a bid to keep all the life support resources to themselves. That would, of course, be the plant-care giver’s worst nightmare; hence the need to keep the weeds in check.

Several methods are employed in keeping weeds in check. Ultimately, though, they fall into two major categories: mechanical weed control methods and chemical weed control methods. And it is the agents used in the latter (chemical weed control) that are referred to as weed destroyers in this context.

There are many types of weed killers, created to meet different types of weed challenges. Selecting a weed destroyer is not always a very easy task. Indeed a frequently asked question by people involved in plant care is as to how to go about selecting good weed killers. And while very many things can be said on how to go about selecting a good weed destroyer, in the final analysis, we end up with two key considerations. The first consideration in the selection of a weed killer is the type of plants you have on the land where you plan to deploy the weed destroyer. The second consideration is on the type of weeds you are trying to fight (whether they are grasses, herbs, shrubs and so on). Your choice of a weed killer should be one that will decimate all the weeds, without harming your desirable plants. You want a chemical agent that works selectively. The worst mistake you can make, of course, is that of opting for a weed destroyer that perceives your desirable plants as ‘weeds’ and ends up killing them, leaving you with the very other variety of plants you have no use for! This is a predicament many people end up in; hence the need to enlist the services of a person who is knowledgeable in these matters, in case you are in doubt.

Additionally, you should also opt for a weed killer that is truly effective (as some are only marginally effective). An ideal weed destroyer should be one that is environment friendly and if you are growing plants for commercial purposes, one that is cost-effective both in the short-run and in the longer run.
