Ideal Spray Conditions
- Optimum soil temperature: 78-83 degrees
- Avoid spraying when plants are in a drought situation and immediately after a large rain (more than three inches) because of poor translocation.
- Spraying season: 42-63 or 72-84 days after bud-break
- Workable wind speeds: 2-10 mph
- Avoid spraying when relative humidity is low (less than 50 percent).
- Avoid spraying when temperature is extremely high (over 95 degrees).
- 1/4 lb/acre of Remedy, 1/4 lb/acre of Reclaim.
- 2-4 gallons oil-in-water emulsion (1 pt. to 1 g. diesel fuel oil and water to make ratio is considered optimum)
- 15 percent Remedy, 85 percent diesel
- Wet all stems emerging from the ground to 12 inches up each stem.
- Works well on smooth bark mesquite trees that are less than eight feet tall.
- 0.5 percent Reclaim, 0.5 percent Remedy, 0.25 percent surfactant
- Mix with water.
- Spray must contact all leaves.
- Follow same guidelines for aerial-spraying mesquite.
- Works well for trees less than eight feet tall.
- Wet both sides of all pads of a plant for an effective mortality rate.
- Hand-spray any time during the year when some soil moisture is present.
- Avoid spraying when drift potential is high.
- Mixture: 1 percent Tordon 22K mixed with water and a surfactant.
- Prescribed burning before spraying can damage prickly pear pads and allow a lower rate of herbicide for an effective kill rate (1/8 to 1/4 lb/acre of Tordon 22K).
- Tordon 22K is a restricted-use herbicide.
- Mixture: 1/4 to 1/2 lb/acre of Tordon 22K. Two to four gallons oil-in-water emulsion (1 pt. to 1 g. diesel fuel oil and water to make ratio optimum).
