Gordon’s Brushmaster Herbicide is recommended to control perennial broadleaf weeds and undesirable woody plants established in noncropland. It is effective for buckbrush, poison ivy, multiflora rose, and sumac established in the uncultivated areas presented below:
UNCULTIVATED AGRICULTURAL AREAS AND UNCULTIVATED NONAGRICULTURAL AREAS:
Recommended Noncropland Sites.
- Barrier strips
- Fencerows or fence lines
- Highway rights-of-way (principal, interstate, county, private, and unpaved roads): Roadsides, roadside ditches, road shoulders, road embankments, dividers, and medians.
- Industrial sites: Lumberyards, tank farms, fuel or equipment storage areas.
- Municipal, state, and federal lands: Airports and military installations
- Railroad rights-of-way
- Recreation areas: Fairgrounds, golf courses, parks, and areas adjacent to athletic fields.
- Utility rights-of-way: Telephone, pipeline, electrical powerlines, and communication transmission lines
Applications to non-cropland areas are not applicable to treatment of commercial timber or other plants being grown for sale or other commercial use, or for commercial seed production, or for research purposes.
Prohibitions for Noncropland Sites.
- Do not apply to any body of water such as lakes, streams, rivers, ponds, reservoirs, or estuaries (salt water bays). Do not apply to any shorelines (noncropland sites adjacent to the edges of a body of water) for lakes, streams, rivers, ponds, reservoirs, or estuaries (salt water bays).
- Do not apply to wetlands (swamps, bogs, potholes, or marshes).
- Do not apply to agricultural irrigation water or on agricultural irrigation ditchbanks and canals.
- Do not apply to agricultural drainage water or on agricultural ditchbanks.
Broadcast Foliar Applications:
- Spray Preparation - Add one-half of the required amount of water to the spray tank, then add slowly Gordon’s Brushmaster Herbicide with agitation, and complete filling the tank with water. To prevent separation of the emulsion, mix thoroughly and continue agitation while spraying.
- Noncropland including Barrier Strips, Farmyards, Fencerows, Firebreaks, Highway Rights-of-way, Industrial Sites, Municipal, State and Federal Lands, Railroad Rights-of-way, Recreation Areas, and Utility Rights-of-way.
APPLICATION TIMING FOR MIXED BRUSH:
- Spraying can be effective throughout the growing season from full leaf to leaf drop for mixed brush. Full cover sprays should be applied during warm weather when brush and broadleaf weeds are young and actively growing. All leaves, stems, and shoots should be thoroughly wetted to the ground. Do not cut brush until the herbicide has translocated throughout the plant causing root death.
- Basal bark, cut stump, and frill treatments of Gordon’s Brushmaster Herbicide are appropriate during the dormant period before bud growth or any signs of active growth of the mixed brush. However, basal bark treatments may be applied anytime of the year except when water or snow prevents spraying to the ground line.
- Broadcast applications to woody plants: Apply to trees and brush when foliage is fully expanded and plants are actively growing.
- Up to 4.0 gallons of product per acre (4.0 lb. 2,4-D acid equivalent per acre) may be applied in a single application to rights-of-way, including electrical power lines, communication lines, pipelines, highways and railroads that intersect wooded areas or stands of trees, brush and woody plants.
- The maximum noncropland application rate for tree, brush and woody plant control is 4.0 gallons of product per acre per application per site.
USE PRECAUTIONS FOR ALL METHODS OF APPLICATION:
- Do not apply this product through any type of irrigation system.
- Do not apply when temperatures exceed 85°F and humidity is high.
