BrushMaster Herbicide is a smart and budget conscious choice for broadleaf weed and brush control in non-cropland areas like firebreaks, fencelines, shoulders, ditches, and outside of farm buildings. Using several methods of application, BrushMaster Herbicide can be applied nearly year-round. The majority of cool-season grasses will tolerate BrushMaster Herbicide (see label for full details) making it a great product to use on erosion protection areas which may be damaged by other products and methods. The formulation of this product includes a Trimec herbicide complex providing synergy with other active ingredients and increasing penetration into the plant to help kill the root.
BrushMaster Herbicide can be mixed with oil (mix with water to avoid harming grass). BrushMaster Herbicide will kill many species of weeds and brush that other products will not.
