CrossCut Select is an easy-to-use, turf-friendly and flexible post-emergent herbicide that gives you complete control over many unwanted species on a variety of terrain. It is capable of dealing with the many hard-to-control species such as Elm, Hazel and Honeylocust, to easier ones like Beech, Dogwood and Hawthorne. This herbicide can even deal with broadleaf without any damage to turf. It can also be applied on a number of different types of land such as permanent grass pastures, rangeland, residential turf, commercial turf, sod farms, conservation reserve program (CRP) acres, fence rows, non-irrigation ditch banks, roadsides, other non-crop areas and industrial sites.
CrossCut Select can be applied by all types of sprayers for your convenience. Its low volatility formulation of triclopyr and 2,4-D allows for excellent weed control in warm and cool conditions. It also guarantees rainfast in just 2 hours after application. Finally, CrossCut Select offers users a flexible application timing options, and can be applied during dormant or in-season periods.

Rangeland, Permanent Grass Pastures, Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) acres, Commercial Turf, Sod Farms, Fence Rows, Non-Irrigation Ditch Banks, Roadsides, specified Non-Crop areas and Industrial sites. Not for use on Bermuda grass
Broadcast Treatment (Ground Equipment and Helicopter): Apply up to 4 quarts of CrossCut Select per acre in sufficient water to deliver 10 to 30 gallons of total spray per acre. Actively growing weeds are most susceptible. Optimal application time for biennial and winter annual weeds is the rosette stage. Hard-to-control weeds such as field bindweed, chicory, dogfennel, goldenrod, horsenettle, kudzu, milkweed, perennial sowthistle, leafy spurge, and Canada thistle may require Retreatment for complete control.
Spot treatment is defined as a treatment area no greater than 1,000 square feet per acre. To control broadleaf weeds in small areas with a hand sprayer, mix 4 to 6 fl. oz. of CrossCut Select in 3 gallons of water. Spray to thoroughly wet all foliage.
Note: Best time for treatment of biennial and winter annuals is when plants are in the rosette stage.
CrossCut Select may be mixed with liquid nitrogen fertilizer suitable for foliar broadcast application. Apply liquid fertilizer at rates recommended by supplier or Extension Service Specialist. Applicators should determine compatibility CrossCut Select with liquid nitrogen with a clear glass jar test prior to mixing a full spray tank. Sometimes a suitable compatibility agent be required. Compatibility is more likely with straight liquid nitrogen fertilizer solutions (without phosphorous or potassium elements). Premixing CrossCut Select with 1 to 4 parts water may prevent incompatibility. Fill the spray tank about half full with the liquid fertilizer, then add the herbicide with agitation and complete filling the tank with fertilizer. Apply immediately and continue agitation in the spray tank during application. Do not store spray mixture. Application during very cold weather (near freezing) is not advisable.
CONSERVATION RESERVE PROGRAM (CRP) FOR ESTABLISHED PERMANENT GRASS STANDS
Apply CrossCut Select to CRP acres after perennial grasses are established. Do not apply if grass is under drought stress.
Broadcast Application (Ground or Aerial):
Apply 1 to 2 quarts of CrossCut Select for small weed control or up to 4 quarts of CrossCut Select for deep-rooted perennial and susceptible woody species control using enough water to deliver 10 or more gallons of total spray volume per acre.
(fence rows, non-irrigation ditch banks, roadsides, industrial sites and similar non-crop areas)
High Volume Foliar Applications Through Handguns:
Using a power or hand pressured spray-gun, apply a foliar wetting spray containing up to 4 quarts of this product in sufficient water to make 100 gallons of total spray mix. See mixing chart under “Mixing Directions” for preparing small amounts of this 1 to 1.5% spray mix.
Spray to give thorough coverage of the foliage, wetting all leaves and green stems to the drip point. Depending on the plant size and foliage density, the total amount of required spray is usually 100 to 200 gallons per sprayed acre.
For best results, applications should be made when woody plants are actively growing. This is most likely to occur for a period after full leaf in the spring to early summer when moisture and temperature are favorable. For multiflora rose control, the best time for treatment may be expected during the early to mid-flowering stage. The required spray volume will increase substantially if the brush exceeds 5 feet in height. Brush over 8 feet tall is difficult to treat efficiently. Large brush or trees may be controlled better by basal or mechanical methods.
Dormant Stem Applications:
To control susceptible woody species such as multiflora rose and blackberry, mix 4 to 8 quarts of this product in diesel oil, No. 1 or No. 2 fuel oil or kerosene to make 100 gallons of spray and apply to thoroughly wet upper and lower stems including the root collar and any ground sprouts. Treat at any time when the brush is dormant and the bark is dry. Best results have been obtained with late winter to early spring applications. Do not treat when snow or water prevent spraying to the ground line. For the most susceptible woody species such as blackberries, substitute other diluents or oils only in accordance to manufacturer’s recommendations. Apply mixture to thoroughly wet upper and lower stems as described above. The more tolerant species may require total oil carrier for better control. Brush over 8 feet in height is difficult to treat efficiently. Basal or mechanical methods may be better suited for control of large trees.
Conventional Basal Bark and Stump Applications:
For control of susceptible woody plants and to prevent or control regrowth from cut stumps, mix 8 quarts of this product in diesel oil, No. 1 or No. 2 fuel oil or kerosene to make 100 gallons of spray mixture. Spray the basal parts of brush or trees to a height of 15 to 20 inches from the ground. Thoroughly wet all the basal bark area including crown buds and ground sprouts. Spray runoff should visibly wet the ground at the base of the stems or trunks. Basal and cut stump applications can be made at any time of the year except when snow or water prevent spraying to the ground line. Best results have been obtained with winter to early spring applications. Basal treatments are less effective on trees with diameters larger than 6 to 8 inches. For better regrowth control, cut the larger trees and treat the stumps. Treat stumps the same as the trunks and also treat the freshly cut surface. The cambium layer just inside the bark is the most important area of the cut surface to treat.
Thinline Basal Applications:
For the control of small multiflora rose, apply a horizontal thin line of undiluted herbicide across all the stems at a height where the stems are less than 1/2 inch in diameter and have thinner bark to penetrate. For bushes with large numbers of stems (over 3 or 4), coverage may be difficult. Basal bark or dormant stem applications may be more effective. Treat when the bark is dry and rain is not forecasted. Best time for multiflora rose control using this application method is during early spring to early summer, when the plants are just about breaking dormancy to actively growing. Apply approximately 20 ml undiluted product per bush. Wherever a stem over 1/2 inch in diameter is treated, it should be completely ringed with herbicide to obtain best results. Additional herbicide is likely to be needed for adequate coverage of these larger stems in a bush or clump. Old stems with thickened bark require more herbicide than young stems with thin bark. Where regrowth is treated, better root kill may result if resprouts are treated after they are one year old and the bark has lost its green color, but before sprouts reach one inch in diameter.

grown for sale or other commercial use, or for commercial seed production, or for research purposes.
• 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.

• Chemigation is prohibited. Do not apply through any type of irrigation system.
• Do not use on bentgrass.
• Do not use on newly seeded grasses until grass has established a good root system and is tillering.
• Do not reseed pastures within a minimum of three weeks after treatment.• Do not spray pastures containing desirable broadleaf forbs, especially legumes such as clover, unless injury or loss of such plants can be tolerated. However, the stand and growth of established grasses usually is improved, particularly when rainfall is adequate and grazing is deferred.
