Nufarm Polaris controls Japanese bamboo and cattails as well as most other tough aquatic, brushy weeds. It can be used in riparian zones, wetlands, estuaries, roadside and utility rights-of-way, wildlife openings,and other non-cropland areas. The long-lasting formula provided by Nufarm Polaris helps to reduce the need for re-treating, and the low usage rate means less product to apply and handle. As with all of Nufarm's products, Polaris offers the quality performance you expect.

Highly effective herbicide providing long-term control of unwanted vegetation
Prevents re-sprouting or germination of labeled weeds and brush in treated areas when used at recommended rates
Excellent nonselective soil applied and postemergent herbicide. When used with Diuron covers a very broad spectrum of weeds and light brush.
I would have preferred the 40% solution for more cost effective carry in vehicle, however price was reasonable for this 20% formulation.
Am buying Polaris locally, just found it on Do My Own..
There is a inexpensive product called MSM. It is a soluble powder. Comes with its own measuring cup.
Add MSM to Polaris.
It will kill all woody weeds, even Privet.
ALWAYS ADD SOMEHTING LIKE DAWN ULTRA TO ANY SPRAY FOR BETTER COVERAGE. 10 to 12-oz per 100 gals (1/2teaspoon per gal)
Purchased Polaris herbicide to spray Privet. Instructions say a 1% solution will kill the plant. I raised the concentration to 2% and had very little success. Basically only works on young plants. It killed a lot of grass that was not a target pest. Will have to resort to mechanical means to remove the invasive species. Way too expensive for so few results.
So far so good treating watershield in a small 1.5acre pond. The vegetation would just take over into the summer. This was said to be highly effective and it has been. Visible difference after one week.

Will Nufarm Polaris Herbicide kill Chinese bamboo permanently?
I've been battling Chinese bamboo for 2 years now.
Nufarm Polaris Herbicide is a great choice for aiding in control of Japanese and Golden Bamboo in aquatic areas. Per the product label, you should apply when the plants are actively growing and before setting seed head. It is important to understand and practice non-chemical methods for controlling many types of bamboo as well since established bamboo can be very difficult to completely eradicate. This article from your PA Extension has more information about bamboo commonly found in your area.
