Chaparral is an all-around herbicide that effectively controls different types of weeds and brush. Proven to be the most consistent and the best herbicide for clearing buckbrush on pasture and rangelands. Its active ingredients help in providing excellent blackberry control and pigweed residual without the need for tank mixing. This broad-spectrum herbicide is also beneficial to grass production and animal health. Highly capable and offers superior control of hard-to-kill weeds, including Pensacola bahiagrass. Comes in a 1.25 lb. bottle.
Rangeland, permanent grass pastures (including grasses grown for hay), CRP acres, natural areas (such as wildlife management areas, wildlife opening, wildlife habitats, recreation areas, campgrounds, trailheads, and trails) and grazed areas in and around.

Resistance Management Guidelines
This product contains two herbicides with different modes of action. Development of plant populations resistant to the mode of action of aminopyralid is usually not a problem on rangeland, permanent grass pastures, Conservation Reserve Program (CRP), or non-cropland sites since these sites receive infrequent pesticide applications. There may be resistant weed biotypes to metsulfuron and adequate control of these species cannot be expected.
Similar looking biotypes of a given weed species occurring in a treated area may vary in their susceptibility to a herbicide. Application of a herbicide below its labeled rate may allow more tolerant weeds to survive and a shift to more tolerant biotypes within the treated area.
Where identified, spreading of resistant weeds to other fields may be prevented by cleaning harvesting and tillage equipment before moving to other areas and by planting a weed-free seed.
Contact your extension specialist, certified crop consultant, or Dow AgroSciences representative for the latest resistance management information.
Maximum Application Rate: On all labeled use sites do not broadcast apply more than 3.3 ounces/acre of Chaparral per year. The total amount of Chaparral applied broadcast, as a re-treatment, and/or spot treatment cannot exceed 3.3 oz of product per acre per year. Spot treatments may be applied at an equivalent broadcast rate of up to 6.6 oz product of Chaparral per acre per annual growing season; however, not more than 50% of an acre may be treated at that rate. Do not apply more than a total of 3.3 ounces/acre of Chaparral per annual growing season as a result of the broadcast, spot or repeat applications.
Sprayer Clean-Out Instructions
It is recommended to use separate spray equipment on highly sensitive crops such as tobacco, soybeans, peanuts, and tomatoes.
Do not use spray equipment used to apply Chaparral for other applications to land planted to, or to be planted to, broadleaf plants unless it has been determined that all residues of this herbicide have been removed by thorough cleaning of equipment.
Equipment used to apply Chaparral should be thoroughly cleaned before reusing to apply any other chemicals as follows:
Rinse and flush application equipment thoroughly after use. Dispose of rinse water in a non-cropland area away from water supplies.
Rinse a second time, adding 1 quart of household ammonia or tank cleaning agent for every 25 gallons of water. Circulate the solution through the entire system so that all internal surfaces are contacted (15 to 20 minutes). Let the solution stand for several hours, preferably overnight.
Flush the solution out of the spray tank through the boom.
Rinse the system twice with clean water, recirculating and draining each time.
Spray nozzles and screens should be removed and cleaned separately.
Do not apply this product with mist blower systems that deliver very fine spray droplets. Use of mist blower equipment can reduce control achieved with the herbicide and increase spray drift potential.
Apply the specified rate of Chaparral as a coarse low-pressure spray. Do not apply this product with mist blower systems that deliver very fine spray droplets. Spray volume should be sufficient to uniformly cover foliage. Increase spray volume to ensure thorough and uniform coverage when target vegetation is tall and/or dense. To enhance foliage wetting and coverage, an approved non-ionic agricultural surfactant may be added to the spray mixture as specified by the surfactant label.
Ground Broadcast Application: Higher spray volumes (greater than 10 gallons per acre) generally provide better coverage and better control, particularly in dense and/or tall foliage.
Aerial Broadcast Application: Do not apply less than 2 gallons per acre total spray volume. Five gallons per acre or greater will generally provide better coverage and better control, particularly in dense and/or tall foliage.
High-Volume Foliar Application: High volume foliar treatments may be applied at rates equivalent to a maximum of 3.3 ounces per acre annual growing season. Use sufficient spray volume to thoroughly and uniformly wet foliage and stems.
Spot Application: Spot treatments may be applied at an equivalent broadcast rate of up to 6.6 oz of product per acre per annual growing season; however, not more than 50% of an acre may be treated at that rate. Do not apply more than a total of 3.3 ounces/acre of Chaparral per annual growing season as a result of the broadcast, spot or repeat applications. Spray volume should be sufficient to thoroughly and uniformly wet weed foliage, but not to the point of runoff. Repeat treatments may be made, but the total amount of Chaparral applied must not exceed 3.3 ounces/acre per year.
To prevent misapplication, spot treatments should be applied with a calibrated sprayer.
In general for spot treatments, mix 2.5 oz for weeds and 3.3 oz for the brush of Chaparral per 100 gallons of water (assuming an application volume of 100 gallons per acre).
Chaparral is measured using the Chaparral volumetric measuring cylinder. Scales calibrated in ounces may also be used.
Aerial Drift Reduction Advisory
Information on Droplet Size: The most effective way to reduce drift potential is to apply large droplets. The best drift management strategy is to apply the largest droplets that provide sufficient coverage and control. Applying larger droplets reduces drift potential, but will not prevent drift if applications are made improperly, or under unfavorable environmental conditions (see Wind, Temperature and Humidity, and Temperature Inversions).
Controlling Droplet Size:
Volume - Use high flow rate nozzles to apply the highest practical spray volume. Nozzles with higher rated flows produce larger droplets.
Pressure - Do not exceed the nozzle manufacturer’s specified pressures. For many nozzle types, lower pressure produces larger droplets. When higher flow rates are needed, use higher flow rate nozzles instead of increasing pressure.
Number of Nozzles - Use the minimum number of nozzles that will provide uniform coverage.
Nozzle Orientation - Orient nozzles so that the spray is released parallel to the airstream to produce larger droplets than other orientations. Significant deflection from horizontal will reduce droplet size and increase drift potential.
Nozzle Type - Use a nozzle type that is designed for the intended application. With most nozzle types, narrower spray angles produce larger droplets. Consider using low-drift nozzles. Solid stream nozzles oriented straight back produce the largest droplets and the lowest drift.
We have cedar trees on our trail and would like to promote good grass growth for these areas and kill all giant weeds!
When using Chaparral Herbicide trees adjacent to or in a treated site can occasionally be affected by root uptake of Chaparral. Do not apply Chaparral within the root zone of desirable trees unless such injury can be tolerated.Do not apply or drain or flush equipment on or near desirable trees or other plants, or on areas where their roots extend, or in locations where the product may be washed or moved into contact with their roots, as injury or loss of desirable trees or other plants may result. Do not apply in areas that can cause runoff into areas where desirable tress or plants are.
Can you graze broodmare and foals on fresh sprayed pastures using Chaparral Herbicide?
Per the product label of Chaparral Herbicide, "Grazing and Haying Restrictions: There are no restrictions on grazing or grass hay harvest intervals following application of Chaparral at labeled rates. However, cutting hay too soon after spraying weeds will reduce weed control. Wait 14 days after herbicide application to cut grass hay to allow herbicide to work. Do not transfer grazing animals from areas treated with Chaparral to areas where sensitive broadleaf crops occur without first allowing 3 days of grazing on an 4 Specimen Label Revised 08-05-14 untreated pasture. Otherwise, urine and manure may contain enough aminopyralid to cause injury to sensitive broadleaf plants." Please be sure to review the product label for more information and complete application instructions.
