PastureGard HL Herbicide controls many tree and brush species, including blackberry, rose species, sweet gum, osage orange, lantana and wax myrtle. Weeds controlled include Sericea lespedeza, tropical soda apple, ragweed, ironweed, dogfennel, dock, etc. PastureGard does not provide soil residual control of weeds or brush emerging after application.
PastureGard HL Herbicide is not just a more concentrated formulation of PastureGard herbicide. PastureGard HL also is easier to use than its predecessor. True, the high-load formulation of new PastureGard HL requires only half the old rate of PastureGard to get the same job done. PastureGard HL Herbicide may be broadcast applied to pastures and fencerows, either aerially or by ground, or as an individual plant treatment (IPT) in rangeland and permanent pastures. Handling characteristics also have been improved for PastureGard HL herbicide so the new formulation doesn’t swell rubber seals in sprayers.
