Technical Specifications

  • Application Method

    Single stem foliar
    • For control of woody plants up to 2.5 m in height, use Garlon XRT herbicide at rates of 2.5 to 5 L in enough water to make 1000 L of spray solution. Use the higher rate for late summer application when growth rates are reduced or when hard-to-control species are present. Spray brush to the point of runoff.
    • Coverage should be thorough to wet all foliage.
    Low volume foliar
    • For control of woody plants up to 2.5 m in height use this technique with knapsack or backpack sprayers equipped with flat fan or solid cone nozzles.
    • For control of woody plants, mix 0.6 to 3 L of Garlon XRT herbicide in enough water to make 100 L of spray solution.
    • Direct the spray solution to thoroughly wet the foliage of the target plants but not to the point of runoff.
    • Apply after full leafout, but before autumn colouration.

  • Approved Use
    Refer to the Garlon XRT label for complete use instructions.
    Refer to the Controlled Weeds list for the full list of weeds.
  • Rates

    Garlon XRT is available in 2x10L cases and 110L drums.
    Broadleaf weed control
    Mix 2.5 to 5 L of Garlon XRT Herbicide in a minimum of 200 L of water per hectare to ensure uniform coverage.
    Ground equipment (broadcast) applications
    Mix 0.6 to 2.5 L of Garlon XRT Herbicide in a minimum of 200 L of water per hectare to ensure uniform coverage.

  • Application Timing

    • For foliar applications, apply to target trees and weeds when they are actively growing.
    Trees - Apply after full leafout to actively growing trees, prior to autumn colouration.
    Weeds - Apply to actively growing weeds, after emergence, prior to flowering.

    Rainfast: 2 Hours

  • Mixing Instructions

    For control of woody plants in rights-of-way, military bases, industrial sites and non-crop areas, use Garlon XRT Herbicide in oil mixtures prepared and applied as described below. Use a diluent such as mineral oil or vegetable oil. Add Garlon XRT Herbicide to the required amount of oil in the mixing tank and mix thoroughly. When mixing with oils commercially formulated for basal bark herbicide applications, read and follow the use directions and precautions on the product label prepared by the oil’s manufacturer.
    Use the higher spray mixture concentration of Garlon XRT Herbicide when treating basal sprouting and root suckering species or when applying during the dormant season. Use low nozzle pressure to minimize spattering of spray solution off the target stem.
    One-Sided Low Volume
    To control woody plants with stems less than 15 cm in basal diameter, mix 13 to 19 L of Garlon XRT Herbicide in enough oil diluent to make 100 L of spray mixture. Apply with a knapsack or backpack sprayer using a flat fan or solid cone nozzle, or wick attachment. Low pump pressures of 70 to 210 kPa are recommended. Spray the basal parts of at least one side of each stem to thoroughly wet the lower 30 cm, including the root collar area, but not to the point of runoff. Apply at any time, including the winter months, except when snow or water prevents spraying at the ground line.
    Streamline
    To control woody plants, mix 13 to 19 L of Garlon XRT Herbicide in enough oil to make 100 L of spray mixture. Apply using a knapsack or backpack sprayer with a flat fan or solid cone nozzle, or wick attachment. Low pump pressures of 70 to 210 kPa are recommended. Apply sufficient spray to one side of stems less than 8 cm in basal diameter to form a band 5 cm in width. When the optimum amount of spray mixture is applied, the treated zone should widen to encircle the stem within approximately 30 minutes. Treat both sides of stems which are 8 to 15 cm in basal diameter. Direct the spray at a point on the stem that is approximately 30 to 50 cm above ground level. Optimal results are achieved when applications are made to young vigorously growing stems which have not developed the thicker bark characteristics of slower growing, understory trees in older stands. Apply at any time, including the winter months, except when snow or water prevents spraying at the desired height above ground level.
    Cut Stump Treatment
    To control resprouting of cut stumps of woody species, mix 13 to 19 L of Garlon XRT Herbicide in enough oil to make 100 L of spray mixture. Apply the solution to thoroughly wet the outer portion of the cut surface adjacent to the cambium and the sides of the stumps, including the root collar area, but not to the point of runoff. Apply at any time, including the winter months, except when snow or water prevents spraying to the ground line. Care must be given to ensure treatment of all cut stems in a clump. Apply with a backpack or knapsack sprayer using a flat fan or a solid cone nozzle. Low pump pressures of 70 to 210 kPa are recommended.

  • Grazing

    There is no restriction on livestock grazing treated areas for areas applied with up to 3L/ha

    3 to 5 L/ha: do not graze or harvest green forage from treated area for 14 days following treatment. Note: No grazing restriction for beef livestock if less than 25% of the grazed area has been treated.

    Grazing or harvesting green forage

    1)  Lactating dairy animals
    a) Up to 3 L/ha: withhold lactating dairy animals from consuming treated green forage for 14 days following treatment.
    b) 3 to 5 L/ha: withhold lactating dairy animals from consuming treated forage for 60 days following treatment.

    2)  Other livestock
    a) Up to 3 L/ha: no grazing restriction.
    b) 3 to 5 L/ha: do not graze or harvest green forage from treated area for 14 days following treatment.

    NOTE : If less than 25% of a grazed area is treated, there is no grazing restriction (for other livestock only).

    Haying (harvesting of dried forage)

    1)  Lactating dairy animals
    a) For treatments up to 5 L/ha do not feed lactating dairy animals hay which had been harvested within 60 days of treatment.
    2)  Other livestock
    a) Up to 3 L/ha: do not harvest for 7 days following treatment.
    b) 3 to 5 L/ha: do not harvest hay for 14 days following treatment.

    Withdraw livestock from grazing treated grass or consumption of treated hay at least 3 days prior to slaughter.
