    • Weeds: Apply to actively growing weeds, after emergence, prior to flowering.

Optimizing Performance

  • Apply to actively growing weeds. Avoid applying to plants under stress.
  • Pre-slurrying ClearView is recommended.
  • Use higher rates when hard-to-control species such as ash, chokesherry, eml, maple (other than vine or big leaf), oaks or pine are present. If lower rates are used on hard-to-control species, resprouting may occur and retreatment may be necessary the following year.
  • Avoid applications in hot temperatures. If temperatures reach 20oC or higher, cease applications for the day.

Mixing Instructions

  1. Fill the spray tank 3/4 full of clean water.
  2. Add the required amount of ClearView herbicide with the agitation running. Pre-slurrying with water may be necessary where there is little or no agitation, or an injection system is being used, or where herbicide is first added to a tank other than the spray tank.
  3. Add the required amount of Garlon XRT with the agitation running.
  4. Add the require amount of Gateway adjuvant at 0.25 - 0.375% by volume
  5. Add antifoaming agent, if required.

Application Methods

Single stem foliar

For control of woody plants up to 2.5 m in height, use Garlon XRT herbicide at rates of 2.5-5 L tank mixed with ClearView at  135‑230 g/ha in enough water to make 1,000 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.
