    • Restore II is a co-formulated solution packaged in 2 x 9.7 L jugs; one case treats 20 acres.
    • Minimum 20 gal/ac total spray solution (ground applications).
    • Minimum 5 gal/ac total spray solution (aerial applications).
    • Backpack applications to small areas: create a 0.24% solution with 10 L of water.
    • Thoroughly and uniformly wet the foliage of all target plants but not to the point of runoff.

  • Application Timing
    • Application timing to control a broad range of weeds may be challenging, since emergence and growth stages occur at different times throughout the season.
    • Target timing to the most problematic weed. For example, if your primary target is tall buttercup, timing will likely be earlier (May 15 to June 30). If the primary target is Canada thistle, wait long enough for the majority of thistles to emerge (July 1 to 30).
    • Apply Restore II when the primary target weed is most actively growing, after emergence and prior to flowering.
    • Environmental stresses, such as severe drought or extended periods of heat, may decrease efficacy.
    • Restore II can only control weeds and root systems that are treated. Weeds that have not emerged will not have the same level of control as weeds that were fully emerged.
  • Mixing Instructions
    • Half fill the spray tank with clean water. Add the required amount of product and agitate thoroughly.
    • Fill the tank with clean water and agitate well before use.
    NOTE: If spray solution has been left standing, agitate thoroughly before use.

  • Grazing

    • No grazing restrictions for beef livestock.

    • Allow 7 days after application before grazing lactating animals.

    • Restore II works like a natural growth-regulating hormone found only in plants.

    • Mammals do not metabolize Restore II. If ingested, it is rapidly excreted from the body in the urine, and does not accumulate.

    • Withdraw meat animals from treated areas at least 3 days before slaughter.

    • Allow 30 days after application before cutting hay or harvesting forage.

  • Additional Information

    Optimizing Performance:

    • Do not spray if injury to existing forage legumes cannot be tolerated.

    • Do not apply within the drip line of desirable trees.

    • Take appropriate measures to prevent application or drift onto plants and trees not intended for control.
