At the recommendation of my extension office, I purchased this product to be used in my efforts to control Italian Arum, but there is no suggested use rate for that plant in the instructions. From my reading on this plant, metsulfuron-methyl (MSM) by itself will not be effective. Some researched-based literature reports some success with a tank mix of MSM, glyphosate and a surfactant to achieve control. I’m using a 1-gallon tank, as it is a small patch. Can you advise on the correct dosage and correct method for mixing with glyphosate and a surfactant?
We do apologize but since this is an off label usage of MSM Turf Herbicide we cannot advise of rates that would be effective. You may try reaching out to the manufacturer directly for advice, they can be reached at (800) 242-5562.
