Eraze 510 is a non selective herbicide containing 510 g/L of the active ingredient glyphosate present in the form of isopropylamine (IPA) salt. It is registered for the control of a wide range of perennial and annual weeds in a number of situations including general weed control, non agricultural, brush and woody weeds, aquatic and forestry areas. Because Eraze 510 is non selective, care must be taken when applying so that non target plants are not damaged.
Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Eraze 510 BiAquatic, controls weeds by inhibiting the activity of the EPSP enzyme (5-enolpyruvylshikimic acid-3-phosphate synthase), which is necessary for the formation of the aromatic amino acids within the plant. These amino acids are important in the synthesis of proteins that link primary and secondary metabolism of nutrients. As a result of the reduced metabolism of nutrient within the plant, food sources required for growth are not available, essentially resulting in weed death in 7-14 days.
