Crossbow Herbicide is a specially formulated herbicide for effectively controlling unwanted weeds and woody plants. Contains two active ingredients that selectively targets and eliminates annual and perennial broadleaf weeds and unwanted woody plants. The Winfield Crossbow Herbicide is ideal to use on rangelands, fence rows, conservation reserve program (CRP) acres, roadsides, industrial sites, non-irrigation ditch banks, and non-crop areas. Convenient to use because it may be applied as a foliar treatment or spot treatment and may also be used for foliar broadcast applications. It controls woody plants such as hawthorn, sumac, alder, blackberry, poison ivy, cottonwood, sweetgum, Russian olive, and poison oak. Available in a one-gallon jug.
Crossbow in water forms an emulsion (not a solution), and separation may occur unless the spray mixture is agitated continuously.
Water Spray:Fill the spray tank about half full with clean water. Then add the Crossbow and complete filling the tank with agitation running. Mix thoroughly and continue moderate agitation while spraying.

RANGELAND AND PERMANENT PASTURES
Preharvest Interval: Do not cut forage for hay within 14 days of application. For program lands, such as CRP, consult program rules to determine whether grass or hay may be used. The more restrictive requirements of the program rules or this label must be followed.
Maximum Application Rate: Apply no more than 1 gallon (1 lb ae triclopyr + 2 lb ae 2,4-D) per acre per growing season on the range and pasture sites, including rights of way, fence rows or any area where grazing or harvesting is allowed.
Use 2 gallons or more spray solution per acre.
Do not make more than one application per year.
Do not apply within 30 days of the previous application.
If the grass is to be cut for hay, Agricultural Use Requirements for the Worker Protection Standard are applicable.
Postemergence (Annual and Perennial Weeds):
Do not make more than two applications per year
Maximum of 1 gallon (1 lb ae triclopyr + 2 lb ae per acre 2,4-D) per application.
Minimum of 30 days between application
Use 2 gallons or more of spray solution per acre.
Postemergence (Woody Plants):
Limited to 1 application per year.
Maximum of 2 gallons (2 lb ae triclopyr + 4 lb ae per acre 2,4-D) per year.
Use gallons or more of spray solution per acre.
Applications to non-cropland areas are not applicable to the treatment of commercial timber or other plants being grown for sale or other commercial use, or for commercial seed production, or for research purposes.
Woody Plant Control
EASY TO CONTROL SPECIES
1.5 gallons per acre broadcast application or 1 to 1.5% mixtures for high volume foliar applications.
cherry (except black)
maples (except bigleaf and vine)
sassafras (top growth)
wax myrtle (top growth)
Harder to Control Species
High volume applications, 1.5% mixture, conventional basal or dormant stem applications are recommended. A broadcast rate of 2 gallons per acre will increase the degree of control of these species.
*Check the label for the complete list of plants and application rates.
Crossbow has seems somewhat effective against Dogbane. Crossbow is a little pricey, but was one of the few options I had. The real determination will be if this years application of Crossbow will have eliminate the Dogbane when next spring/summer comes along.
