General Information

General Information

Active Ingredient: Contains 1 pound active ingredient per 50 pound bag

XL 2G herbicide is a preemergence herbicide for control of certain annual grasses and broadleaf weeds in container and landscape ornamentals, nursery stock, ground covers, established tall fescue and warm season turf, established flowers, ornamental bulbs, non-bearing fruit and nut trees and non-bearing vineyards, nonbearing berries, Christmas tree plantations, non-cropland and established tall fescue and warm season turf (including bahiagrass, bermudagrass, buffalograss, centipedegrass, St. Augustinegrass, and zoysiagrass). Apply XL 2G prior to germination of target weeds or immediately after cultivation. Length of weed control will vary with rate of XL 2G applied, weed population, potting media or soil conditions, temperature, watering regime, and other factors. Following application, user should monitor and observe level of weed control over time to determine when additional applications may be needed.

General Use Precautions and Restrictions

Do not aerially apply this product.

Do not graze or feed forage from treated areas to livestock.

XL 2G does not control established weeds. Existing weeds should be controlled by cultivation or with postemergence herbicides. Weed residues, prunings and trash should be removed or thoroughly mixed into soil prior to treatment. Soil should be in good condition and free of clods at the time of application. A single rainfall or sprinkler irrigation of 0.5 inches or more, or flood irrigation is required to activate XL 2G. If rainfall or irrigation has not occurred within 21 days of application and tillage is possible, XL 2G may be activated using cultivation equipment capable of uniformly mixing the herbicide into the upper 1-2 inches of soil. Failure to activate XL 2G may result in erratic weed control. Do not apply when wind conditions favor drift of XL 2G granules from the target area.

Users who wish to use XL 2G on plant species not recommended on the label may determine the suitability for such uses by treating a small number of such plants at a recommended rate. Prior to treatment of larger areas, the treated plants should be observed for any sign of herbicidal injury during 30 to 60 days of normal growing conditions to determine if the treatment is non-injurious to the target plant species. The user assumes responsibility for any plant damage or other liability resulting from use of XL 2G on plant species not recommended on the label.

Application Directions

Apply XL 2G using a drop or rotary-type spreader designed to apply granular herbicides or insecticides. Calibrate application equipment prior to use according to manufacturer’s directions. Check frequently to be sure equipment is working properly and distributing granules uniformly. Do not use spreaders that apply material in narrow concentrated bands. Avoid skips or overlaps as poor weed control or crop injury may occur. More uniform application may be achieved by spreading half of the required amount of product over the area and then applying the remaining half in swaths at right angles to the first.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

Special Use Precautions

Do not apply to tulip plants that have emerged to a height greater than 3/4 inch. Deep till prior to planting any crop after this use.

Do not apply to gladioli prior to emergence or to plants less than one inch in diameter.

Application Rates, Frequency, and Timing of Applications

XL 2G may be applied for annual weed control in ornamental bulbs such as bulbous iris, daffodil (narcissus), hyacinth, and tulip. Apply XL 2G to the soil surface two (2) to four (4) weeks after planting and final hilling but prior to the emergence of annual weeds. XL 2G may also be applied following bulb emergence. For fall-planted bulbs, apply XL 2G again in late winter or early spring to weed-free soil surfaces.
