CONIFERS AND BIG LEAF MAPLE
This product is a herbicide for use in cotton, fruit, nuts, golf-courses, turf, grass seed crops, forestry, and non-crop areas. This product contains a surfactant (wetting agent). Additional surfactant may be required depending on the application spray volume. Local conditions and recommendations vary; consult local agricultural experiment station or extension service weed specialists for recommendations in your area.
This product should be applied with a low-volume, low-pressure, properly calibrated sprayer having satisfactory pumping and bypass action. For ground directed spray applications adjust nozzles in a manner to allow maximum coverage of weeds (and in a manner to keep spray off cotton foliage). DO NOT apply with hose-end applicators. This product is somewhat corrosive to certain metals; therefore, use in galvanized steel or aluminum equipment is not recommended.
For aerial application with fixed-wing aircraft or helicopter application, an exactly even swath deposition cannot be achieved, and consequently crop injury or pesticide nonperformance may result wholly or in part. Do not apply by air during periods of thermal inversion.
Apply during warm weather when weeds are in an active stage of growth. Adequate coverage is very important for effective weed control.
1. SPACED-CUT INJECTION WITH ANSUL “HYPO-HATCHET” INJECTOR: The Ansul HYPOHATCHET injector cuts and injects in one operation. When a tree is struck with the injector, a pre-set amount of this product is injected automatically into the sapstream of the tree immediately after impact. The injector works by inertia and is designed to inject at least 1 milliliter of chemical per stroke. The cuts should be evenly spaced around the trunk to give proper distribution into the sapwood. For detailed instructions on how to use the Ansul HYDRO-HATCHET injector, refer to the Operation Manual.
CONIFERS (See General Information on Tree Control) AND BIG LEAF MAPLE (Growing Season): For trees less than 8 inches diameter at breast height (DBH), make one cut per 2 inches of DBH (4 1/2\" spacing between cut edges) at waist height or below. For trees 8 inches DBH and larger, make one cut per 1 inch DBH (1 1/2\" spacing between cut edges).
CONIFERS (Dormant Season): Make one cut per 1 inch of DBH (1 1/2\" spacing between cut edges) at waist height or below.
BIG LEAF MAPLE (Dormant Season): Make a complete frill at waist height or below (cuts need not be overlapping).
2. SPACED-CUT APPLICATION: Although spaced-cut application is facilitated by use of the Ansul HYDRO-HATCHET injector, a hatchet or similar cutting tool can be used to make horizontal frills. The number of cuts per tree depends upon the size of the cuts and the volume to be injected, but in any case, should be sufficient to hold the herbicide without running down the trunk. Make certain that each cut penetrates into the sapwood. Large trees with full crowns require almost overlapping frills to effect control. Apply this product with a pump-type oil can, plastic squeeze bottle, or other suitable dispenser.
CONIFERS (See General Information on Tree Control) AND BIG LEAF MAPLE (Growing Season): For trees less than 8 inches diameter breast height (DBH), apply 1 to 2 milliliters of this product per cut per 2 inches of DBH (6\" spacing between cut centerlines) at waist height or below. For trees 8 inches DBH and larger, use 1 to 2 milliliters per cut per 1 inch DBH (3\" spacing between centerlines).
CONIFERS (Dormant Season): Apply 1 to 2 milliliters of this product per cut per 1 inch of DBH (3\" spacing between cut centerlines)
BIG LEAF MAPLE (Dormant Season): Apply 1 to 2 milliliters of this product per cut in a complete frill at waist height or below (cuts need not be overlapping).
