How should I apply Remedy Ultra to kill black locust?


Remedy Ultra Herbicide should be applied as a foliar, basal bark or cut stump application. To use Remedy Ultra for a cut stump treatment, you would cut the tree down to a stump and then treat the fresh cuts with Remedy Ultra Herbicide. For small volume applications, you would use 25-38.4 oz per gallon of water, being sure to get the outer layers and cambium of the stump. You will still need to remove the strumps and root systems physically after using herbicides to stop regrowth. The mixing ratio of Remedy Ultra Herbicide is 0.16 fl oz. per gallon of water. This is the application rate for foliartreatments. Be sure not to use more than 2 quarts per acre per year. Remedy Ultra Herbicide can be mixed with either water or diesel fuel depending on the application. Per the product label for Remedy Ultra Herbicide, for Low Volume Basal Bark Treatments: 

"To control susceptible woody plants...with stems less than 6 inches in diameter, mix 20 to 30 gallons of Remedy Ultra in enough oil to make 100 gallons of spray mixture. Apply with a backpack or knapsack sprayer using low pressure and a solid cone or flat fan nozzle. Spray the basal parts of brush and tree trunks to a height of 12 to 15 inches from the ground in a manner which thoroughly wets the lower stem, including the root collar area, but not to the point of runoff."

This dilution rate would break down to 25.6 to 51.2 ounces of concentrate in enough oil to make 1 gallon of finished solution.
