Restore your pastures productivity with Restore™ NXT

Something went wrong. Please try again later...

A robust integrated pasture management plan relies on a variety of techniques, including herbicides to control problem weeds and maximize pasture productivity.

Restore™ NXT herbicide with Rinskor™ active offers producers a new weed management solution, providing selective control of invasive broadleaf weed species while utilizing lower use rates. 

Convenient and effective weed control

Restore NXT provides effective, extended control of invasive broadleaf weeds. Formulated with Rinskor active, this new pasture weed control solution helps to minimize the impact on the environment. Rinskor is a new synthetic auxin herbicide that rapidly degrades in the soil and has a low persistence in the environment. The convenience and lower use rate also makes Rinskor a sustainable choice for weed control.

A solution that controls more than 40 invasive weeds including wild caraway, wild chervil and wild parsnip, Restore NXT is the latest innovation for controlling broadleaf weeds in permanent pastures and rangeland.

Key target weeds include:

Wild caraway

A biennial plant that can quickly outgrow native plants, wild caraway thrives in pastures. The plant is similar in appearance to other members of the carrot family, with feathery leaves. Wild caraway is identified by white groups of flowers and can be difficult to identify when not in flower.

Wild chervil

Wild chervil resembles other plants in the carrot and parsley family. It competes with grasses and other plants for nutrients, water and light and can tolerate a wide range of conditions.

Wild Chervil Weed

Wild parsnip

Another member of the carrot and parsley family, wild parsnip can invade pastures. Wild parsnip can grow up to 1.5 m tall with compound leaves arranged in pairs, with sharply-toothed leaflets that are shaped like a mitten and outcompetes native vegetation, particularly crowding out lower-growing plants. The plant is adaptable to different environments and produces a large amount of seed, which contributes to the plant’s persistence and spread. Wild parsnip produces sap containing chemicals that can irritate human skin.

Wild Parsnip Weed

Restore NXT controls other broadleaf weeds such as Canada thistle, scentless chamomile and ox-eye daisy, along with targeting cleavers, clover, common waterhemp, fireweed, mullein, poison hemlock, purple loosestrife, rush skeletonweed and scotch thistle.

Enhance pasture performance

Taking care of weeds, especially invasive and noxious species not only improves pasture productivity in the long term, but also contributes to animal health and productivity.

Weeds are more competitive than desirable pasture plants and weeds that aren’t consumed by cattle easily reproduce and spread. Some weeds can also be toxic to livestock, especially during times when there is little else available for grazing. That’s why taking a proactive approach to managing weeds in permanent pasture and grazed rangeland is essential.

How to use Restore NXT


Applications are most effective when they are applied while the weed is in its most susceptible growth stage. Apply Restore NXT to target weeds during the early season, after emergence, prior to flowering and when actively growing.

Application rates

Acres treated: 33 ac/case at highest labelled rate. For best results, apply at 0.6 L/ac. Restore NXT requires the addition of Gateway™ adjuvant at 0.25 - 0.5% v/v.

Individual plant applications: 15 ml of Restore NXT, 50 ml of surfactant in 10 L of water. Thoroughly wet, but not to point of runoff.

Water volume: Broadcast applications: Apply in a minimum of 20 US gal/ac total solution.

Rainfast: 4 hours

Tank mixes: To control all weeds on both the Restore™ II herbicide and Restore NXT labels, tank mix Restore NXT with 2,4-D Amine 600.  Refer to product label for complete use directions.


Grazing and feeding is permitted on the day of application (0 days). There is no restriction on livestock grazing in areas treated with Restore NXT. Allow three days of grazing on an untreated pasture before transferring livestock to areas where sensitive broadleaf crops may be grown.
