TVC Total Vegetation Control

TVC Total Vegetation Control is a systemic herbicide that works by translocating through stems and leaves and destroying the plant root. TVC Total Vegetation Control gives you season long control over undesirable vegetation such as annual and perennial weeds, woody brush, and trees. Use TVC Total Vegetation Control in non-cropland sites like utility, highway, railroad, and pipeline right-of-way, petroleum tank farms, utility plant sites, fence rows, pumping installations, under paved surfaces, non-irrigation ditchbanks, and storage areas. TVC Total Vegetation Control can also be used in rangeland and grass pastures, and for maintaining or establishing wildlife openings.

TVC Total Vegetation Control works as a pre-emergent and a post-emergent herbicide.




TVC Total Vegetation Control is a concentrate intended to be mixed with water and surfactant.

PRODUCT INFORMATION

TVC is an aqueous solution intended to be mixed with water and surfactant(s) for application to non-cropland areas including railroad, utility, pipeline and highway rights-of-way, utility plant sites, petroleum tank farms, pumping installations, fence rows, storage areas, non-irrigation ditchbanks, including grazed or hayed areas within these sites. TVC is also recommended for the release of unimproved Bermudagrass and Bahiagrass. It may also be used beneath certain paved surfaces. Additionally, TVC may be used on grass pastures and rangeland, as well as for establishing and maintaining wildlife openings.

When applied either preemergence or postemeregence to weeds, TVC will control most annual and perennial grasses and broadleaf weeds in addition to many brush and vine species. TVC will provide residual control of labeled weeds which germinate in the treated areas. Postemergence application with a surfactant is the method of choice in most situations, particularly for perennial weeds. For maximum affect, weeds should be growing vigorously at postemergence application and the spray solution should include a surfactant. TVC solutions may be broadcast by using ground or aerial equipment, or may be applied as a spot treatment by using low-volume techniques. In addition, TVC may be used for stump and cut stem treatments.

TVC controls vegetation by absorption through leaves, stems, and roots, from which it is translocated throughout the plant, where it accumulates in rapidly-growing meristematic tissue. Treated plants stop growing soon after treatment. Chlorosis (yellowing of plant tissue) first appears in the newest leaves and necrosis spreads from this point. In perennials, TVC is translocated into and kills underground storage tissues to prevent re-growth. Chlorosis and tissue necrosis may not be apparent in some plant species until two weeks after application. Complete kill of plants may not occur for several weeks. Applications of TVC are rain-fast one hour after treatment.

    5 of 5 stars  Insane !
    By Bob in Greenville SC on 04/20/2015

    Tried everything to get rid of bamboo... Yes bamboo ... Neighbor had planted with no barrier to block unwanted growth... Ended up all over my yard... As bamboo is very very hard to eradicate ... Cut thru stalks and sprayed a double strength solution ... Three days later nothing ... Week later nothing.. Was on the verge of giving up.. 14 days and every thing near the treated area is completely dead... No vegetation ... It works ! Highly recommend

    I used this product along with Eraser and the Non-Ionic Surfactant for Herbicides around a building with high weeds and vines. I put this down on 7/28 and I just went back on 9/2 for Sept service and everything is still dead no new growth in the area that was sprayed. I am going to use it on a fence line at the apartment complex that we service I will let you know how it works on fence lines.

    By Steve in Lod CA on 10/16/2014
    Verified Purchase

    This product works very well to control difficult to control weeds, both pre and post emergent. However, it can be extremely toxic to desirable plants. Product is quite persistent and if moved near desirable plants by water or dust, it will severely effect them. I have seen damage to grapes over 100 ft. from application site. TVC was applied while grapes were dormant, but apparently carried by dust to remote vines. Vines 10 ft from application were either killed or severely stunted. My guess is that materials needs to be better incorporated deeper into soil where wind erosion sould be less of a problem.

    worked after one spraying in some areas. (ditch bank, around shed and a/c unit) ground still dead no sign of weed growth for 4 months now. had to apply second spraying on the parking lot area within a month to kill new growth. weeds are now starting to come back in parking area. the parking area gets only afternoon sun , don't know if this may be reason for weed comeback or not, but better than monthly spraying of round-up.

    5 of 5 stars  Fantastic results!
    By Dh in Frederick, Maryland on 05/23/2017

    If a review is telling you it does not work, it is because it was diluted too much. There are instructions on how concentrated you can make your solution based on your desired results. Spray when it is not going to rain in the next few days and be sure to not dilute it too much.

    I have well over a mile of fence on my property as well as plenty of other places that I want to avoid having to maintain throughout the year. This has saved me a LOT of effort by being able to spray everywhere in an afternoon and have a complete maintenance free year.

    Product is described just as ordered, only issue was first order was not delivered due to damaged shipping container, I received an open and empty box from USPS, products that contain liquids should be packaged and sealed as to not allow outside sources to open and access the package contents. Aside from the shipping mishap "Do My Own" was very prompt in replacing the product, shipped and received within 3 days. Great service!!!!!!!

QHow much TVC Total Vegetation Control do I need for 4,000 sq ft?
I am building a kennel and I do not want weeds growing in it. So I was hoping to use a soil sterilizer.

AYou would use roughly just under 1 ounce per 1000 sq/ft in no less than 2 gallons of water. So you would need about 4 ounces in at least 8 gallons of water to cover your 4000 sq/ft.

QNeed to COMPLETELY destroy weeds, bushes, and "sucker plants" on walkways and 2-3 feet from edge of driveway.

QHow long before the weeds die when using TVC Total Vegetation Control?
I applied TVC with a surfactant 6 days ago and I see no difference yet. They were short common lawn weeds along side my garage, which I cut down to under 2" first.

ATVC Total Vegetation Control can take up to a couple weeks to see results. The label recommends that you allow sufficient time for the grasses/weeds to recover after mowing before applying TVC Total Vegetation Control, meaning they work better at a longer height.  TVC is a systemic herbicide and works by translocating through stems and leaves and destroying the plant root, so the longer the leaves and stems, the more quickly it will be absorbed. We recommend letting the weeds grow to a longer height and reapplying TVC Total Vegetation Control at the proper mixing ratio according the product label.

QI've purchased the TVC & surfactant products. I own a 2 gal chapin sprayer.
I want to use the product around the edges of my yard so that I don't need to use a weed eater. My total square footage of my yard is 3500 sq ft. I would like to know how much of each product I would need to put in 2 gallons of water to do the job.

AYou would use roughly just under 1 ounce of the TVC per 1000 sq/ft in no less than 2 gallons of water.   For the Non-Ionic Surfactant that you apply t 0.25% to 1% of the total spray volume (0.25% v/v is equivalent to 1 quart in 100 gallons) in accordance with the surfactant labeling.

QWhen would you need to mix surfactant to TVC Total Vegetation Control?

A

TVC Total Vegetation Control is a systemic herbicide that works by translocating through stems and leaves and destroying the plant root. This can be used in a gravel parking lot at a rate of 2-3 fl oz per gallon of water. Be sure to use a surfactant with the product for increased effectiveness.

QWill TVC kill well established trees (20+ ft tall)?
I'm just trying to kill all weeds/vines on ground level.

A

All bare ground/vegetation management products like†Total Vegetation Control TVC†, are recommended to be applied outside the dripline of desirable trees and plants to prevent their feeding roots from absorbing the product. Inside the dripline is where these roots are closest to the soil and could absorb any such product so we would not recommend using any in the area you have described. The best thing we could recommend is using a glyphosate based product like†GlyPhosel Pro†to spot treat the weeds you want to kill around the tree and then use a†pre-emergent†such as†Surflan Pro†or other that is listed for the weeds you need to control.†
