FORESTRY - SITE PREPARATION TREATMENT AND CONIFER REGENERATION - LOBLOLLY PINE, ETC. - BROADLEAF WEEDS CONTROL

General Information

GENERAL INFORMATION

OneStep is an aqueous solution containing surfactant. It is mixed in water and generally applied as a post-emergent spray for control of most annual and perennial grasses, broadleaf weeds, vines and brambles, and hardwood brush and trees for forestry site preparation.

OneStep may be applied on forestry sites that contain areas of temporary surface water caused by the collection of water between planting beds, in equipment ruts, or in other depressions created by forest management activities, except in the states of California and New York. It is permissible to treat drainage ditches, intermittent drainage, intermittently flooded low lying sites, seasonally dry flood plains, and transitional areas between upland and lowland sites when no water is present, except in the states of California and New York. Only the edge of drainage ditches can be treated for drainage ditches that contain water. It is also permissible to treat marshes, swamps, and bogs after water has receded, as well as seasonally dry flood deltas, except in the states of California and New York. DO NOT make applications to natural or man-made bodies of water such as lakes, reservoirs, ponds, streams, rivers and canals.

OneStep herbicide is also recommended for control of undesirable vegetation along forest roads, non-irrigation ditchbanks, and the establishment and maintenance of wildlife openings except in the state of California.

MIXING AND APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS

BROADCAST APPLICATIONS

Helicopter Spray Equipment:

Thoroughly mix the recommended amount of OneStep in 5 to 30 gallons of water per acre and uniformly apply with properly calibrated aerial equipment. All precautions should be taken to minimize or eliminate spray drift. Applications should not be made under windy or gusty conditions.

Ground Operated Spray Equipment:

Thoroughly mix and apply the recommended amount of OneStep in 5 to 60 gallons of water per acre. A drift control agent and a foam reducing agent may be added at the recommended label rates, if needed. If desired, a spray pattern indicator may be added at the recommended label rate.

For best results, uniformly cover the foliage of the vegetation to be controlled with the spray solution.

DIRECTED FOLIAR OR SPOT SPRAYS

In addition to broadcasting the mixed herbicide solution across an entire acre, the solution can also be directed to individual clumps of herbaceous and woody weeds or to spots within the acre. Backpack sprayers and ground operated equipment with hoses are generally used for directed foliar or spot sprays. Specialized helicopter equipment can also be used for this purpose. When making directed or spot spray applications with backpack sprayers, ground operated equipment, helicopters, or similar equipment that permits directed application, thoroughly mix a solution of 5 to 10 percent by volume of OneStep.

To mix the spray solution add the volume of OneStep indicated in the table below to the desired amount of water.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

FORESTRY - SITE PREPARATION TREATMENT AND CONIFER REGENERATION

ANNUAL AND PERENNIAL BROADLEAF WEEDS

OneStep may be used to control labeled broadleaf weeds on forest sites in advance of regeneration for the conifer crop species.

When applied as recommended OneStep herbicide will control, partially control or suppress listed weeds. Degree of control and residual efficacy is both species and rate dependent. OneStep should be used only in accordance with the recommendations on the label.

Use the higher recommended rate of OneStep per acre applied as a broadcast foliar spray for longer-term suppression of labeled woody plants and residual control of herbaceous weeds. Within 4 to 6 weeks of treatment, herbaceous weeds including grasses and woody vegetation will be controlled and may provide fuel to facilitate a site preparation burn, if desired, to enhance control of conifers or other species tolerant to the herbicide.

Use the higher label rates of OneStep and higher spray volumes when controlling particularly dense or multi-layered canopies of hardwood stands, or difficult to control species.

For spray solution mixing guide of OneStep, please refer to the label.
