Pronone Power Pellets is a highly effective herbicide that targets and controls various types of invasive trees and brush. Contains Hexazinone as its active ingredient which is usually used against weeds and woody plants. It ensures little to no regrowth of unwanted weeds once applied. The Pronone Power Pellets is specially formulated as a treatment for controlling woody plants with minimum damage to herbaceous vegetation. It also controls weeds such as ash, alder, black cherry, black gum, elm, mulberry, hazel, hickory, locust, wild plum, yellow poplar, red maple, and small soapweed. Requires moisture to activate and offers better results if 1/4 to 1/2 inch of rainfall occurs within two weeks. It stays active even during extended periods of no rainfall. This herbicide is ideal to use on rangelands, pastures, reforestation areas, and noncropland areas including storage areas, utility, industrial plant sites, highway, and railroad rights-of-way. For rates under 600 pellets per acre, there is no grazing or hay cutting restrictions. 3 to 6 weeks after rainfall may be needed for woody plants to completely dissolve the pellet and reach its roots. Available in a 3-oz jar with 130 pellets.

The correct use rates by crop and geographical area, specified on the label, and proper loading site considerations and application procedures must be followed to minimize the potential for hexazinone movement into groundwater.

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. For any requirements specific to your State or Tribe, consult the agency responsible for pesticide regulation.
APPLICATION: Apply PRONONE POWER PELLET HERBICIDE by hand to the soil around specific plants or in a grid pattern for area control.
Make application just before or during the period of active growth of brush species to be controlled. For effective brush control and prevention of damage to desirable vegetation do not apply to brush standing in water.
TREE AND BRUSH CONTROL
SINGLE STEMMED PLANTS: For single stem plants, apply 1-2 pellets for every inch of stem diameter. When more than one pellet is needed, distribute the pellets uniformly around the stem out approximately halfway between the stem and the canopy edge.
MULTI-STEMMED PLANTS: For multi-stemmed plants such as Mesquite, Huisache and Multiflora Rose that are 2ft to 3ft tall, apply 1-2 pellets at the base of the plant. For plants 3ft to 6ft tall, apply 2-4 pellets at the base of the plant. For Red Berry Cedar (Juniper), apply 1-2 pellets for every 3ft of plant height or every 3ft of canopy diameter, whichever is greater. Apply the pellets uniformly around the plant approximately halfway between the plant's stem and the canopy edge.
FENCE LINE TREE AND BRUSH CONTROL: For the control of trees and brush in Pasture and Rangeland fences, apply 1 pellet in the fence line for every 3ft of fence length. For heavy infestations, double the rate to 1 pellet for every 1.5ft of fence length.
SMUT GRASS CONTROL
Apply 0.5 -1 pellet per individual clump or plant. Apply by hand to the crown (center) of plant. Do not exceed 600 Power Pellets per acre per season. Power Pellets are not recommended for smut grass control in pastures or rangeland where plant density exceeds 25% coverage. Application of Power Pellets in smut grass infestations exceeding 25?n damage and/or kill surrounding desirable grasses and forage.
NOTE: Do not apply more than 600 pellets per acre per season. Late winter to early summer application is recommended for best results. Do not mow or cut treated brush or trees until 12 months after application. When treating regrowth from cut-off trees and brush, the regrowth must be at least one year old and the rate of application based upon the original plant size. Do not use on marshy or poorly drained sites or on soils classified as clays. For these use sites, there is no restriction on grazing by domestic animals or on cutting forage for hay.
PRONONE POWER PELLET HERBICIDE is recommended for use in forestry site preparation, preharvest control of hardwoods and pine release in pine-hardwood stands for growth enhancement of loblolly, slash, shortleaf and longleaf pine. The treatment provides control of many woody plants such as black cherry, black gum*, dogwood*, elm, hawthorn, hickory*, oaks, red maple*, sweetgum and sumac*.
*Considered hard to kill.
Apply at a rate of 1,700 to 5,800 pellets per acre for preharvest, site preparation, and wildlife openings, and 900 to 3,800 pellets per acre for pine release. Make the application using a grid pattern as suggested in the table below. Do not apply Power Pellets closer than 36" to seedlings or directly upslope from seedlings. When treating large stems and where more than one pellet is needed per stem, make application around the stem.
The rate per acre and grid pattern will depend on soil texture and woody plant species composition. Use the higher rates on fine-textured soils and when the major component of the hardwoods is a difficult-to-control species such as black gum, dogwood, hickory, and red maple. Use the lower rates on medium to coarse textured soils where elm, cherry, oak and sweetgum are dominant. For individual stem treatment, apply the pellet to the soil within 3' of the root collar at the rate of 1 or 2 pellets for each 1" diameter of brush to be controlled. When treating large stems and when more than one pellet is needed per stem, make application around the stem.
*See label for the complete list of application rates.
PRONONE POWER PELLET HERBICIDE is recommended for brush control in noncropland areas such as utility, highway, pipeline and railroad rights-of-way, petroleum tank farms, lumberyards, storage areas, industrial plant sites, the berm of drainage ditches (do not apply to the inside of ditch banks or to inside of banks along waterways) and other similar areas. Apply at 1-2 pellets per inch of stem diameter or as broadcast or grid pattern with rates up to 7,000 pellets per acre.
For multi-stemmed and low-growing brush that have stem diameters that are difficult to determine, apply at 1-2 pellets per 3' of canopy width. For tall, slender brush types, apply 2-4 pellets per 3' of height. Base rate on whichever canopy dimension is greater. If treating resprouts from brush disturbed by cutting, the rate of application should be based on the original tree size, not the small regrowth.
NOTE: At rates greater than 5,000 pellets per acre, do not cut for forage or hay nor graze domestic animals on treated areas for 1 year. At rates between 600 to 5,000 pellets per acre do not cut for forage or hay nor graze domestic animals on treated areas for 60 days. At rates below 600 pellets per acre, there is no restriction on grazing by domestic animals nor on cutting for forage or hay.
