Foliage Spray

Using a hose-end or tank sprayer, mix 8 to 16 tablespoons (4 to 8 fl. oz.) in enough water to make one gallon mixed spray. For mature or hard-to-control plants (such as ash, blackgum, choke cherry, elm, maple, oak, pine, or winged elm), or during drought conditions, use the highest rate of application indicated. Resprouting may occur in the year following treatment when lower rates are used. The addition of a surfactant (spreader/sticker) enhances herbicidal action and improves distribution of the spray on hard-to-wet plant surfaces. Apply at the rate of one gallon mixed spray to approximately 500 sq. ft. of area. Coverage may vary depending on the amount of foliage to be treated. Using coarse spray pattern and low pressure, apply as thorough foliage spray to wet all leaves.

Stump Treatment

To kill stumps and prevent sprouting, apply the undiluted product with a paint brush or by using a backpack sprayer to completely cover the freshly cut surface. Do not reuse paint brush. Wrap in several layers of newspaper and discard in trash.

Vine Control

When treating vines such as poison oak, poison ivy, etc. that grow on or around desirable plants, do not allow spray to contact desirable vegetation. Cut the vine first and treat as directed for stump treatment.

Do not use on or around edible crops. Avoid drift or spray onto desirable plants. Keep people and pets away from the area until the spray has dried. Rainfall within 24 hours may reduce the effectiveness. Slow acting taking 1-6 weeks for control.

    Effective on blackberries

    By Craig on 03/21/2016

    Works well on my main target----blackberries. The only downsides are true of all products: you must have patience. It can take 4-5 weeks to get a good kill. Also, according to most at department sites, it's most effective late summer to early autumn when there are still a lot of dried up berries for birds and critters. My best results come from physically cutting down the vines in spring or early summer and spraying the new growth 2-3 months later. Definitely use some spreader-sticker in the mix.
