Did it rain, or get misty, after it was applied - this reduces the effect.

It certainly doesn't work on Marestail unless you crush the stems first.

hi  the weather was dull and 16degrees applied at 9.15 it rained the next morning so weedkiller should have been dry, the mares ail was well crushed, I'm beginning to wonder if the weeds have become resistant to Glyphosate, the only weeds that have gone back are a patch of Bubblhia seedlings growing up a wall side,  the drives gravel over limestone jezza

add a few drops of liquid soap to the mix and shake this foams up the weed killer and makes it stick to marestail giving it time to be absorbed since iv'e done this stopped crushing and get better results
