General Information


Use TRIUMPH K for control of unwanted annual and perennial broadleaf weeds, woody plants and vines on non-crop areas including forest planting sites, industrial manufacturing sites; rights-of-way such as electrical power lines, communication lines, pipelines, railroads, roadsides, and wildlife openings in forest and non-crop areas.


Maximum Use Rates: Total use of TRIUMPH K must not exceed 2 quarts per acre per annual growing season on rights-of-way and other non-crop areas. No more than 2 quarts per acre may be applied within a period of 2 annual growing seasons on forest sites.

- Do not move treated soil to other areas or use it to grow plants if they are not registered for use with picloram until an adequate sensitive bioassay or chemical test shows that no detectable picloram is present in the soil.

- Do not spray if the loss of forage legumes cannot be tolerated. TRIUMPH K may injure or kill legumes. New legume seedlings may not grow within 2 years following application of this product.

- Be sure that use of this product conforms to all applicable regulations.

- Do not make application when circumstances favor movement from treatment site.

- Do not rotate food or feed crops on treated land if they are not registered for use with picloram until an adequately sensitive bioassay or chemical test shows that no detectable picloram is present in the soil.

- Observe any special use and application restrictions and limitations, including method of application and permissible areas of use as promulgated by state authorities.

- Do not allow or otherwise permit TRIUMPH K or sprays containing TRIUMPH K to contact crops or other desirable broadleaf plants including, but not limited to, alfalfa, beans, cotton, grapes, melons, peas, potatoes, safflower, soybeans, sugar beets, sunflower, tobacco, tomatoes and other vegetable crops, flowers, fruit plants, ornamentals or shade trees.

- Do not contaminate water intended for irrigation or domestic purposes. To avoid injury to crops or other desirable plants, do not treat or allow spray drift or runoff to fall onto banks or bottoms of irrigation ditches, either dry or containing water, or other channels that carry water that may be used for irrigation or domestic purposes. Do not apply to snow or frozen ground.

- Do not apply TRIUMPH K on residential or commercial lawns or near ornamental trees and shrubs. Untreated trees can occasionally be affected by root uptake of herbicide through movement into the topsoil or by excretion of the product from the roots of nearby treated trees. Do not apply TRIUMPH K within the root zone of desirable trees unless such injury can be tolerated.

- Allow 7 days of grazing on an untreated grass pasture before transferring livestock from treated grazing areas onto sensitive broadleaf crop areas. Otherwise, urine may contain enough picloram to cause injury to sensitive broadleaf plants.

- Do not use manure from animals grazing treated areas on land used for growing broadleaf crops, ornamentals, orchards or other susceptible, desirable plants. Manure may contain enough picloram to cause injury to susceptible plants.

- Do not use plant material from treated areas for composting or mulching of susceptible broadleaf plants.

- Do not apply this product through a mist blower.

- Avoid injury to newly planted conifers. Conifer planting intervals vary. Pines planted sooner than 6 months after treatment with TRIUMPH K may be injured in the South or west of the Cascade Mountains. Other conifers, west of the Cascade Mountains, may be injured if planted sooner than 8 to 9 months after treatment. For all conifers, the waiting period between treatment and planting should be 11 to 12 months in the area between the Cascade and Rocky Mountains and 8 to 9 months in the lake States and Northeastern U.S.

- Avoid injurious spray drift. Applications should be made only when there is little or no hazard from spray drift. Very small quantities of spray, which may not be visible, may seriously injure susceptible crops or ornamental plants near enough to be injured. Use a continuous smoke column at or near the spray site or a smoke generator on the spray equipment to detect air movement, lapse conditions or temperature inversions. If the smoke layers or indicates a potential of hazardous spray drift, do not spray.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions



Broadcast Ground or Aerial Foliage Treatment

For ground applications, make applications of TRIUMPH K in 15 or more gallons of total spray mixture per acre. For aerial applications, use 5-to-20 gallons of spray mixture per acre. Use higher spray volumes where plants are tall, where the vegetation to be treated is dense or where difficult to control species are present.

In tank mix combinations, use 1/4-to-1 quart TRIUMPH K per acre with 1-to-3 quarts of Garlon 4 Herbicide or 1-to-4 quarts of Garlon 3A Herbicide or with 1-to-2 quarts of 3.8 lb./gal. 2,4-D amine or low volatile ester such as Albaugh’s 2,4-D Amine 4 or 2,4-D LV4 or with 2/3-to-1 1/3 quarts of 5.6 lb./gal. 2,4-D low volatile ester.
