CONSERVATION RESERVE PROGRAM FOR ESTABLISHED PERMANENT GRASS STANDS
Use Remedy Ultra specialty herbicide for the control of listed susceptible woody plants and annual and perennial broadleaf weeds on rangelands, permanent grass pastures, and conservation reserve program (CRP) acres (including fence rows and non-irrigation ditch banks within these areas).
Remedy Ultra is an oil soluble, emulsifiable liquid product containing the herbicide triclopyr. Remedy Ultra may be applied to woody or herbaceous broadleaf plants as a foliar spray or as a basal bark or cut stump application to woody plants. As a foliar spray, Remedy Ultra controls only herbaceous plants that have emerged from the soil or woody plants that a r e in full leaf at the time of application.
Small amounts of Remedy Ultra can kill or injure many broadleaf plants.
To prevent damage to crops and other desirable plants, follow all directions, precautions, and restrictions.
It is the pesticide user's responsibility to ensure that all products in the listed mixtures are registered for the intended use. Users must follow the most restrictive directions for use and precautionary statements of each product in the tank mixture.
Application Restrictions: Do not apply this product in a way that will contact workers or other persons, either directly or through drift. Only protected handlers may be in the area during application.
Entry Restrictions: Do not enter or allow others to enter the treated area until sprays have dried.
Chemigation: Do not apply this product through any type of irrigation system.
Do not apply with a mistblower.
Do not apply Remedy Ultra directly to, or otherwise permit it to come into direct contact with, cotton, grapes, peanuts, soybeans, tobacco, v e getable crops, flowers, citrus, or other desirable broadleaf plants.
Do not permit spray mists containing Remedy Ultra to drift onto such plants.
Many forbs (herbaceous broadleafs) are susceptible to Remedy Ultra.
Do not spray pastures containing desirable broadleaf forbs, especially legumes such as clover, unless injury or loss of such plants can be tolerated. However, the stand and growth of established grasses usually is improved, especially when rainfall is adequate and grazing is deferred.
Established grasses are tolerant to this product, but newly seeded grasses may be injured until well established as indicated by tillering, development of a secondary root system and vigorous growth. Do not reseed treated areas for a minimum of three weeks after treatment.
Do not apply to irrigation ditches or water used for irrigation or domestic purposes.
Remedy Ultra is formulated as a low volatile ester. However, the combination of spray contact with impervious surfaces, such as roads and rocks, and increasing ambient air temperatures, may result in an increase in the volatility potential for this herbicide, increasing a risk for off-target injury to sensitive crops such as grapes and tomatoes.
Maximum Application Rates
- Apply no more than 1/2 gallon (2 lb ae) per acre per growing season on rangeland, permanent grass pastures, and conservation reserve program acres, including fence rows and non-irrigation ditch banks within these areas, or any area where grazing or haying is allowed.
- Remedy Ultra may be used at rates up to 8 quarts (8 lb ae) per acre per year on non-grazed portions of conservation reserve program acres, including fence rows and non-irrigation ditch banks. Portions of grazed areas that intersect treated rangeland, permanent grass pastures, and conservation reserve program acres may be treated at up to 8 lb ae per acre if the area to be treated on the day of application comprises no more than 10% of the total grazable area.
Grazing and Haying Restrictions
Grazing green forage:
- There are no grazing restrictions for livestock or dairy animals on treated areas.
Haying (harvesting of dried forage)
- Do not harvest hay for 14 days after application.
Slaughter Restrictions: During the season of application, withdraw livestock from grazing treated grass at least 3 days before slaughter.
Avoiding Injurious Spray Drift
Make applications only when there is little or no hazard from spray drift.
Small quantities of spray, which may not be visible, may seriously injure susceptible plants. Do not spray when wind is blowing toward susceptible crops or ornamental plants that are near enough to be injured. It is suggested that a continuous smoke column at or near the spray site or a smoke generator on the spray equipment be used to detect air movement, lapse conditions, or temperature inversions (stable air). If the smoke layers or indicates a potential of hazardous spray drift, do not spray.
Aerial Application: Remedy Ultra may be aerially applied by fixed wing aircraft or helicopter. For aerial application on rights-of-way or other areas near susceptible crops, apply through a Microfoil† or Thru-Valve boom, or use an agriculturally labeled drift control additive. Keep spray pressures low enough to provide coarse spray droplets. Do not use a thickening agent with the Microfoil or Thru-Valve booms, or other systems that cannot accommodate thick sprays. Spray only when the wind velocity is low (follow state regulations). Avoid application during air inversions.

Ground Equipment: With ground equipment, spray drift can be reduced by keeping the spray boom as low as possible; by applying 20 gallons or more of spray per acre; by keeping the operating spray pressures at the lower end of the manufacturer’s recommended pressures for the specific nozzle type used (low pressure nozzles are available from spray equipment manufacturers); and by spraying when wind velocity is low (follow state regulations). In hand-gun applications, select the minimum spray pressure that will provide adequate plant coverage (without forming a mist). Do not apply with nozzles that produce a fine-droplet spray.
Weed Resistance Management:
Triclopyr, the active ingredient in this product, is a Group 4 herbicide based on the mode of action classification system of the Weed Science Society of America. Any weed population may contain or develop plants resistant to Group 4 herbicides. Resistant weeds may dominate the weed population if these herbicides are used repeatedly in the same field. Such resistant weed plants may not be effectively managed using Group 4 herbicides but may be effectively managed utilizing other herbicides alone or in mixtures from a different herbicide Groups that are labeled for control of these weeds and/or by using cultural or mechanical practices. However, a herbicide mode of action classification by itself may not adequately address specific weeds that are resistant to specific herbicides. Consult your local company representative, state cooperative extension service, professional consultants or other qualified authorities to determine appropriate actions for treating specific resistant weeds.
Best Management Practices:
Proactively implementing diversified weed control strategies to minimize selection for weed populations resistant to one or more herbicides is recommended. A diversified weed management program may include the use of multiple herbicides with different modes of action and overlapping weed spectrum with or without tillage operations and/or other cultural practices. Research has demonstrated that using the labeled rate and directions for use is important to delay the selection for resistant weeds.
Scouting after a herbicide application is important because it can facilitate the early identification of weed shifts and/or weed resistance and thus provide direction on future weed management practices. One of the best ways to contain resistant weed populations is to implement measures to avoid allowing weeds to reproduce by seed or to proliferate vegetatively.
Cleaning equipment between sites and avoiding movement of plant material between sites will greatly aid in reducing the spread of resistant weed seed.
Remedy Ultra specialty herbicide may be foliarly applied by diluting with water or by preparing an oil-water emulsion. For woody plant control, an oil-water emulsion performs more dependably under a broader range of conditions than a straight water dilution and is recommended for aerial applications.
Prepare oil-water emulsions using diesel fuel, fuel oil, or kerosene plus an emulsifier such as Sponto 712 or Triton X-100. Use a jar test to check spray mix compatibility before preparing oil-water emulsion sprays in the mixing tank.
Ground Application: Add oil to the spray mix at a rate of 5 to 10% of the total mix, up to a maximum of 1 gallon of oil per acre, using agricultural s p ray emulsifiers according to mixing instructions below.
Aerial Application: Use oil and water in the spray mixture in a 1:5 ratio (1 part oil to 5 parts water), up to a maximum of 1 gallon of oil per acre a c cording to mixing instructions below.
Oil Mixture Sprays for Basal Treatment
Prepare oil-based spray mixtures using either diesel fuel, No. 1 or No. 2 fuel oil, kerosene or a commercially available basal oil. Substitute other oils or diluents only as recommended by the oil or diluent's manufacturer. When preparing an oil mixture, read and follow the use directions and precautions on the manufacturer's product label. Add Remedy Ultra to the required amount of oil in the spray tank or mixing tank and mix thoroughly. If the mixture stands over 4 hours, reagitation is required.
Mixing with Liquid Fertilizer for Broadleaf Weed Control
Remedy Ultra may be tank mixed with liquid nitrogen fertilizer and foliarly applied for weed control and fertilization of grass pastures. Use Remedy Ultra in accordance with recommendations for grass pastures as given on this label. Apply at rates recommended by supplier or Extension Service Specialist. Note: Remedy Ultra is not recommended for use with liquid fertilizer on woody plants (brush). Foliage burn caused by liquid fertilizer may reduce herbicide effectiveness on woody plants. Test for mixing compatibility using desired procedure and spray mix proportions in clear glass jar before mixing in spray tank. A compatibility aid such as Unite or Compex may be needed in some situations. Compatibility is best with straight liquid nitrogen fertilizer solutions. Mixing with N-P-K solutions or suspensions may not be satisfactory even with the addition of compatibility aid. Premixing Remedy Ultra with 1 to 4 parts water may help in difficult situations.
Fill in the spray tank about half full with the liquid fertilizer, then add the herbicide with agitation and complete filling the tank with fertilizer. Apply immediately and continue agitation in the spray tank during application. Do not store liquid fertilizer spray mixtures. Application during very cold weather (near freezing) is not advisable. The likelihood of mixing or compatibility problems with liquid fertilizer increases under cold conditions.
Note: Do not use spray equipment for other applications to land planted, or to be planted, to susceptible crops or desirable plants unless it has been determined that all phytotoxic herbicide residue has been removed by thoroughly cleaning the equipment.
Foliage Treatment With Ground Equipment
Use sufficient spray volume to completely and uniformly cover foliage.
For ground application, apply 10 gallons or more of total spray volume per acre. Use higher spray volumes for ground applications to ensure adequate coverage with increased depth and density of foliage, particularly for treatment of woody plants.
Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) for Established Permanent Grass Stands
Use Remedy Ultra specialty herbicide on CRP acres only after perennial grasses are well established.
Broadcast Application Ground or Aerial: Apply 1 to 2 pints of Remedy Ultra per acre for small weed control or up to 1 1/2 quarts of Remedy Ultra per acre for deep-rooted perennial and susceptible woody species control. Use enough water to deliver 10 gallons or more per acre by ground or 2 gallons or more per acre by air of total spray volume.
- On CRP acres, apply no more than 1 1/2 quarts of Remedy Ultra per acre per growing season.
- When applying to CRP lands, follow all applicable state and federal regulations. Follow the most severe grazing restriction imposed by the pesticide label or by the USDA Acreage Conservation Reserve Program.
After that time period, follow local (CRP) guidelines regarding cropping and haying restrictions. Do not use Remedy Ultra if legumes are a desired cover crop during CRP.
