Alligare Triclopyr 4 is an oil-soluble herbicide that controls unwanted woody plants and perennial and annual broadleaf weeds. The active ingredient triclopyr is highly effective in controlling difficult weeds like Canada thistle, gallberry, salt cedar, and wax myrtle. It may be applied through ground or aerial applications. This powerful selective herbicide is specially formulated to easily dilute with water or to be used as an oil-water emulsion. It has less impact on grasses and can be used as foliar and basal treatments. Ideal for use on rangeland, forests, grass pastures, industrial manufacturing and storage sites, fence rows, rights-of-way, ornamental turf, non-crop areas around the farm, grazing areas and establishment, and maintenance of wildlife openings. Ideal for restoring pastures and a solution to seasonably dry wetlands. Compare to Garlon 4 or Remedy.

Do not apply through any type of irrigation system.
Do not apply to ditches used to transport irrigation water. Do not apply where runoff or irrigation water may flow onto agricultural land as injury to crops may result.
It is permissible to treat non-irrigation ditch banks, seasonably dry wetlands, floodplains, deltas, marshes, swamps, bogs and transitional areas between upland and lowland sites. Do not apply to open water such as lakes, reservoirs, rivers, streams, creeks, saltwater bays, or estuaries.
Do not apply this product through mist blowers unless a drift control additive, high viscosity inverting system, or equivalent is used to control spray drift.
Do not make direct applications or allow spray mists to drift onto cotton, fruit or orchard trees, shrubs, grapes, peanuts, soybeans, tobacco, vegetable crops, flowers, citrus, or other desirable broadleaf plants.
Many forbs (herbaceous broadleafs) are susceptible to Alligare Triclopyr 4. Unless injury or loss of such plants can be tolerated, do not spray pastures containing desirable broadleaf forbs (especially legumes such as clover). After applications, the stand and growth of established grasses are usually improved, especially when rainfall is adequate and grazing is deferred.
While established grasses are tolerant of this product, newly seeded grasses may be injured until well established (as indicated by vigorous growth, tillering and the development of a secondary root system). Do not reseed treated areas for a minimum of three weeks after treatment.
Portions of grazed areas that intersect treated non-cropland, rights-of-way, and forestry sites may be treated at up to 8 lbs. ae per acre if the area to be treated on the day of the application comprises no more than 10% of the total grazable area.

Mixing Directions: Apply Alligare Triclopyr 4 foliarly by diluting with water or as an oil-water emulsion. NOTE: An oil-water emulsion performs more dependably under a broader range of conditions than a straight water dilution for woody plant control and is recommended for aerial applications.
Oil-Water Emulsions NOTE: Prior to preparing oil-water emulsion sprays in the mixing tank, conduct a jar test to check spray mix compatibility.
Prepare the oil-water emulsion using diesel fuel, fuel oil, or kerosene plus an emulsifier such as Sponto 712 or Triton X-100.
Ground Application: Add oil at a rate of 5 to 10% of the total to the spray mix (up to a maximum of 1 gallon of oil per acre) and use an agricultural spray emulsifier according to mixing instructions below.
Aerial Application: Add a 1:5 ratio of oil and water (1 part oil to 5 parts water) to the spray mixture (up to a maximum of 1 gallon of oil per acre) according to the mixing instructions below.
Alligare Triclopyr 4 may be applied in combination with labeled rates of other herbicides provided:
The tank mix product(s) are labeled for the timing and method of application for the use site to be treated; and,
Tank mixing is not prohibited by the label of the tank mix product(s).
Tank Mixing Precautions:
Read carefully and follow all applicable use directions, limitations, and precautions in the respective product labels.
Do not exceed specified application rates. If products containing the same active ingredient are tank mixed, do not exceed the maximum allowable active ingredient use rates.
When using spray equipment where the product formulations will be mixed in undiluted form (such as direct injection), special care should be taken to ensure tank mix compatibility.
Woody Plants Controlled by Alligare Triclopyr 4
Tree of Heaven
Annual and Perennial Broadleaf Weeds Controlled by Alligare Triclopyr 4
As a homeowner, I've tried a number of ways to get rid of creeping charlie with very little success. This product has definitely shown results, although the directions for application are not very clear. It is definitely designed for commercial use so I think most homeowners will have to do some experimenting. I plan to apply again about 30 days after the first application and increase the concentration just slightly. I applied with a hand sprayer and used a surfactant and was mostly pleased with the results.
I've been looking for an herbicide that will kill the wild violets that are taking over my turf. I followed directions for mixing and applied Triclopyr 4 with a 2 gallon pump up spray bottle.
Results: one week later the Violet's leaves are curling and turning yellow, and the grass (Ky Blue + Fescue) is still intact.
This stuff really works!
So-called Tree of Heaven and some Black Locust trees were cut down in our yard resulting in annoying suckers that seemed to spring up everywhere.
I used a 4:1 mix with kerosene to spray on the leaves of the suckers to eliminate them from our yard.
This stuff isn't inexpensive, but it even killed the roots of the suckers, thus making it far easier to pull them up, roots and all. Plus, it didn't kill the nearby bushes.
When mixed with an oil carrier and applied according to the label instructions this product works very well. Note that it is soil active so try to keep if out of the soil so adjacent plants are not damaged. Also note that it takes up to four months for full effect so be patient.
If you want to destroy some wild violet In your lawn, this is your product. I couldn't find where I sprayed the violet after two weeks. My neighbor, who borrowed some, would agree. His yard was 50% violet, which has now been completely eliminated.
