GOTCHA Organic Herbicide
The ORGANIC Weed Destroyer

GOTCHA
100% ORGANIC HERBICIDE (THE WEED DESTROYER)

GOTCHA

GOTCHA  is unique. Developed and tested over many years, it has a DUAL function in that it controls the “problem” and at same time supplies nutrients to the soil, a two for one benefit.

It is an organic replacement for Round Up, glyphosate and chemical weed herbicides. Glyphosate is considered harmful and has been withdrawn from use from many parts of the world.

FAST ACTION- DUAL FUNCTION – Weed killer and Soil Nutrient

  • Glyphosate free
  • A Liquid-Concentrate Herbicide
  • Controls and kills weeds, grasses, moss
  • Increases soils fertility – dual action
  • Fast acting, visible effect seen within 30 mins
  • Suitable in all situations; crops, gardens, agricultural, industrial etc.
  • Non-residual and non-selective
  • Approved for use in organic farms

Gotcha is a non-selective weed killer based on the active ingredients of Caprylic acid and Eugenol, carried in amino acids derived from fermented soy liquid.

“The increased activity of the active ingredients (Caprylic / Capric Acid) can be attributed to the high level of ‘Synergistic Action’ of the combinations of the digested/fermented soy plant amino acids and plant-based Silicon Penetrant.”

-Dr. Sam Jahangard

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

  • Caprylic/Capric Acids (Octanoic Acid) derived from plant oils – coconut oil
  • Digested/fermented low pH liquefied soy plant, as a carrier
  • Eugenol fraction from Clove oil
  • Organic plant-based Silica Wetter/Penetrant to increase the product effectiveness on weeds, i.e., difficult to wet weeds, waxy and hairy leaves.

DUAL ACTION - SAVE TIME AND MONEY

Chemical-based weed killers are often toxic for the soil microorganisms, crops and humans and can stay active for a long period of time.

However, GOTCHA organic weed killer has a positive effect on soil microorganisms and fertility. Gotcha quickly breaks down in the soil and adds plant derived amino acids and other organic matter.

As soy beans are very high in proteins (nitrogen), our specialized digester system converts the macerated and homogenized soy plant pulp into stable amino acids, creating a high bioavailable soil nutrient and synergistic delivery system for our active constituents.

GOTCHA organic weed killer desiccation effects on the plants last for a noticeably short time as it breaks down quickly when it is exposed to sunlight and air.  Unlike many chemical-based weeds killers which may penetrate the soil due to rain and/or irrigation water and damaged the treated roots, Gotcha is stable and it avoids this problem.

 GOTCHA organic weed killer has desiccation, burning and penetration effects on the weeds which are directly sprayed on, so total coverage is important.

From South Pacific Biotech experience (comparison trials), GOTCHA is more efficacious at lower dose rates than the commercial Pelargonic Acid based weedkillers, and has significant results on:

  • A broad range of weeds
  • Seedling, early stage growth of grass weeds
  • Broad leaf leaves
  • Algae and moss
SPECTRUM OF ACTIVITY
  • Annual broad leaf/weeds less than 15-25 cm.
  • Grass weeds less than 10-15 cm
  • Most active on the seedling weeds prior to advanced root development.
  • Active on Perennial weeds in early stage of growth (not regrowth), and at later stage a defoliant.

MANY ADVANTAGES

  • It is more efficacious than the other commercial Pelargonic Acid based weed killers, as the carrier of the active ingredient is the digested/fermented liquefied Plant Juice which is an acidic and low pH in nature and therefore it accelerates the effectiveness of the active ingredient
  • GOTCHA requires lower dosage rate than other organic weed killers
  • Minimal foaming during agitation
  • Non-staining on stone and concrete
  • Safe for vegetation sprayed around and under permanent plantings and trees
  • Non-systemic
  • For use to control unwanted vegetation up to and including day of harvest
  • No pre-harvest interval
  • Does not volatilize
  • Safe for use in and around perennial crops
  • Ideal tool for reducing chemical resistance
  • An ideal tool for organic integrated weed management programs
  • Can prevent weed resistance by rotating with chemical herbicides
  • Safe for all crops including grapes, stone fruits, apples, berries etc

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Dose rate use: 25-35-50mm/Lt water
  • Can be mixed with other treatments

APPLICATION RATE

  • Use the lower use rate for young succulent and actively growing weeds and highest rate for weeds greater than 15 cm.
  • Use the highest rate for Perennial weeds or when plants/weeds have hardened.
  • Use a 2.5% solution for very small / newly emerged weeds
  • Use a 3.5% solution for control of small annual weeds/grasses.
  • Use a 5.0% solution for desiccation/burndown of small Perennial weeds and larger annual weeds in later stage of growth
  • Note: Use a 7.5% solution when maximum desiccation of difficult to control weeds/plants is required

  • Note: Use a 7.5% solution when maximum desiccation of difficult to control weeds/plants is required

TIMING OF APPLICATION

  • Application of GOTCHA spray to get total coverage of sprayed plants could range from 100 to 300 litres spray per hectare, depending on size, timing and types of weeds/plants.
  • Spray where possible in sunlight with a period of one (1) hour with no rainfall, following GOTCHA application.

NOTE: Total coverage is necessary and important

pH OF SPRAYING WATER

The ideal pH for the spraying water is pH 7 or lower. If the pH of the spraying water is greater than 7, adjust to pH 6 or below prior to the addition of GOTCHA. The dilution water can be adjusted using an acidifier.

 ADDITIONAL PRECAUTIONS/PLANTS

  • Do not apply to weeds/plants that are wet from dew, rain or water.
  • Do not apply if rainfall is expected within 1 to 2 hours of application.
  • For maximum results, complete coverage of the weeds/plants is necessary.
  • If spraying tall weeds over 20 cm it is very important to get total coverage of lower (bottom) stem of the weed, as there is no systemic activity.
  • Perennial weeds will require an multiple applications and use of the high dose rate.
  • GOTCHA burns down weeds by desiccation/ burning of foliage and stem and will kill many weeds species; most effective when weeds are young and not have developed deep root systems.

ADDITIONAL GOTCHA WEED KILLER ADVANTAGES

  • Light spray drift of GOTCHA will not affect growth of established desirable ornamental plants, vines or trees (unless a direct spray is applied).
  • Some leaf spotting/burn may occur on leaves.
  • If directly sprayed on to trunks/base of trees or ornamentals, there will be no negative effect.
  • There is minimal negative residual effect in soil following application of GOTCHA. Therefore, it can be used around desirable vegetation.
  • GOTCHA has a beneficial nutritional effect to soils due to amino acids in the formulation.

GENERAL ADVICE FOR SINGLE PASS: Save time, energy and money

  • Step 1 Prepare land for crops
  • Step 2 Wait for weeds to start to emerged to sprayable height (on average 2-4 weeks)

Step 3 Spray with GOTCHA at same time as seeding/planting crops – with one pass (save time, energy and money)

STORAGE

Store GOTCHA at room temperature, away from direct heat and light sources.
