Pastora Herbicide can be measured by 1ml into 2 gallons water or 1/4 teaspoon per 2 gallons water. The half life is up to two years in soil.
No, Pastora Herbicide should not be used under or around any desirable trees.
We would recommend using Pastora Herbicide. You will use 1 - 2.5 oz. per 100 gallons of water per acre. This is safe for use in pastures and will stop foxtail from coming up.
There are no grazing or haying restrictions for non-lactating or lactating livestock including cattle, horses, sheep, goats, and other animals when using Pastora as directed. Grazing animals do not have to be moved off the pasture before, during, or after applying Pastora.
Application rates of Pastora Herbicide vary from 1 - 2.5 oz. per 100 gallons of water per acre depending on the type of weed you are trying to prevent. When using a pre-emergent the amount of water could be more or less as water is just the carrier and it is more important to be sure you are applying the correct amount of product per area.
Pastora Herbicide works best if 1-2 inches of rain or irrigatin are applied after application. This will help move the product to the root zone.
Pastora Herbicide can be used in Tall Fescue pastures. Check with your state extension or Department of Agriculture before use, to be certain Pastora is registered in your state.
Pastora Herbicide has a shelf life of 3 years if it is stored in a cool dry place.
Pastora Herbicide should be kept outside of the drip line of desirable trees and shrubs.
Pastora Herbicide is not labeled to be used in home lawns and is labeled for tall fescue hay fields. Acclaim Extra Selective Herbicide will control seedling Johnsongrass, and it will suppress rhizome Johnsongrass and is safe for use in tall fescue. For nutsedge control we would recommend using Sedgehammer. Neither the Acclaim or Sedgehammer can be used in pastures.
Yes, Pastora Herbicide is labeled to control sandburr, aka goathead.
Pastora is labeled to suppress Johnsongrass in a Bermuda pasture.
Pastora Herbicide is labeled to control sandbur aka sandspur when used as directed on the product label for post-emergent control. The label states that grazing animals do not have to be moved off the pasture before, during, or after applying. Apply when sandbur is newly germinated to 1.5” tall. Make applications when bermudagrass is less than 4” tall following green-up in the spring or after cutting for hay. Tall, dense stands of bermudagrass can intercept spray and reduce sandbur control.
The mixing rate for Pastora Herbicide is 1-1.5 fl. oz. per 100 gallons of water. This will treat one acre.
For best results from Pastora, apply it when target weeds are young and actively growing.
Without knowing what type of grass is your lawn we would not be able to make a specific recomendation.
Usually applying a winter (around Feb-March) and a spring (around April-May) pre-emeregent application of Dimension 2EW or Pendulum 2G will kill sandburs. The treated area should not be disturbed during this period and should be watered in thoroughly for best results. As always, read and follow label directions carefully. Also remember that it may take a couple of years to eliminate all the burs hiding in your lawn. We recommend that you contact your local cooperative extension office and speak to the master gardener on staff as he/she may be able to tell you what has worked best in your region and also the exact time to apply the products for the best result in your region.
