BareSpot Monobor-Chlorate is a non-selective herbicide that provides broad-spectrum and residual control of grasses and weeds with just a single application. The combination of two active ingredients, Sodium Metaborate, and Sodium Chlorate, provides instant knockdown and long-lasting control of existing vegetation including broadleaf weeds, perennial weeds, annual weeds, grasses, trees, and shrubs, as well as prevent regrowth in the future. It is best for use on non-crop areas -- around farm buildings, cell tower sites, equipment storage areas, lumberyards, petroleum tank farms, along fence lines, parking areas, industrial sites, and under asphalt paving. It can be applied using a hand sprayer or push operated spreader for a uniform treatment of target areas. The product comes in a ready-to-use pelleted granular formulation. Available in 50 lb. bag.
IMPORTANT: This material is not selective in action, may be toxic to all types of vegetation, and may render the entire treated area totally or partially unproductive for one or more years. Care should be taken to continue the use of application to the particular area intended to be treated and to avoid its contact with lawns, trees, shrubs, crops and other desirable plants which are not intended to be destroyed or injured. This includes precautions in treating areas which may be underlaid by roots of adjacent desired growths. Careless application of this material, or washing by water run-off to areas where desirable plants are growing or which will be used for later planting may result in injury to desirable plants. Do not drain or flush equipment on or near such areas.
Do not contaminate domestic or irrigation water or waters used by fish and wildlife. Wash clothing and equipment after application. Keep animals off treated area until rainfall has leached all the herbicide into the soil. Mechanical equipment should be thoroughly cleaned after use .
WHERE TO USE:
AROUND OR NEAR THE FOLLOWING: Bleachers, Bridge abutments, Buildings, Bunkers, Buried cable closures, Catwalks, Cemeteries, Compressor stations, Cooling towers, Cross connection boxes, Electrical generators, Fence lines, Fire hydrants, plugs or walls, Fuel tanks, Generating plants, Guardrails, Helo pads, Highway and street markers, Loading stations, Lumber yards, Microwave towers, Oil and gas pipelines, Oil refineries, Parking lots, Pump decks, Railroads lines and siding, Runway lights, Runways, Sign post, Storage and equipment yards, Utility poles and substations, Vacant lots, Valves and manifolds, Waste lagoons.
UNDER THE FOLLOWING: Asphalt, Concrete, Gravel, Driveways, Sidewalks or walkways and other similar non-cropped areas.
Non agricultural uses are limited to spot treatments with exception of applications under asphalt. Application under asphalt may only be applied with handheld equipment such as rotary spreader and are limited to 8,000 square feet per site. Use on right-of-ways and ditch banks is prohibited.
WHEN TO USE: Use BareSpot Monobor-Chlorate anytime during the growing season. Weeds and grasses are easier to kill when they are young and growing rapidly.
APPLICATION: BareSpot Monobor-Chlorate is ready to use! Apply with a hand-operated spreader such as a conventional cyclone type spreader, or a power spreader for larger areas. Apply granules uniformly over the area to be treated. The material becomes effective in the soil, followed by rainfall or watering. Non agricultural uses are limited to spot treatments with exception of applications under asphalt. Application under asphalt may only be applied with handheld equipment such as rotary spreader and are limited to 8,000 square feet per site. Use on right-of-ways and ditch banks is prohibited.
Use the following rates of application under most conditions:
KINDS OF WEEDS APPLICATION RATES
General Weed Control - 2 lbs. per 100 sq. ft.*
Perennial Weed Control - 3 lbs. per 100 sq. ft.**
Approximately 2 1/2 cups of BareSpot Monobor-Chlorate equal 1 lb.
*As low as 1 Ib/100 Sq. ft. can be used on young and rapidly growing annual weeds.
** As low as 2 lbs/100 Sq ft can be used on young and rapidly growing perennial weeds.
APPLICATION CONVERSIONS (per 100 sq. ft.)
2 ft. diameter: 2 lb. - 1 oz. / 3 lbs. - 1 1/2 oz.
4 ft. diameter: 2 lb. - 4 oz. / 3 lbs. - 6 oz.
6 ft. diameter: 2 lb. - 9 oz. / 3 lbs. - 13 1/2 oz.
UNDER ASPHALT PAVING - For use as "pre-paving" residual herbicide under asphalt paving to prevent premature breakdown of paving due to weeds. Apply BareSpot Monobar-Chlorate to the finished pre-asphalt grade. For dry application, 2-3 Ibs per 100 square feet. After treatment apply at least 2 gallons of water per 100 square feet to dissolve and incorporate the herbicide in the soil. For spray application, dissolve 1-2 pounds per gallon of water and apply 1 1/2 to 2 gallons per 100 square feet. Where surfacing has already cracked by emergent vegetation, inject BareSpot Monobar-Chlorate in a solution of 2 pounds per gallon of water. Inject under pressure into the subsoil with a sharpened, perforated steel pipe.
Do not apply this product in a way that will contact workers or other persons, either directly or through drift. Only protected handlers may be in the area during application.
Application with a spoon, pump-deed backpack spreader, or a gravity-feed backpack spreader is prohibited.
Do not apply more than 3 Ibs. of product per 100 sq. ft.
Do not apply directly to water, to areas where surface water is present, or to intertidal areas below the mean high water mark. Do not contaminate water used by wildlife and aquatic life, or for domestic and irrigation purposes. Do not apply where runoff is likely or where weather conditions favor movement away from target areas. Do not contaminate water when disposing of equipment washwaters or rinsate.
