For the control of annual and perennial broadleaf weeds in established turfgrass including sod farms, rangeland and permanent grass pastures, roadsides, CRP land and other non-crop areas. Not for use on residential lawns.
One of the best ways to control broadleaf weeds in established cool-season and warm-season nonresidential turf continues to be 2D specialty herbicide. A non-phenoxy herbicide, 2D is ideal for high-use areas, including parks, golf courses, commercial grounds and schools, because it provides superior post-emergence control of more than 35 difficult-to-manage species of broadleaf weeds, including clover, dandelion and oxalis. 2D is not labeled for use on residential turf. When applied to healthy, well-established turf, under favorable climatic conditions, 2D can be used with little risk of damaging or discoloring turf. And 2D provides eight to 12 weeks of control of tough broadleaf weeds, so fewer treatments are required.
FOR THE CONTROL OF ANNUAL AND PERENNIAL BROADLEAF WEEDS IN ESTABLISHED TURFGRASS INCLUDING SOD FARMS, RANGELAND AND PERMANENT GRASS PASTURES, FENCE ROWS, NON-IRRIGATION DITCH BANKS, ROADSIDES, AROUND FARM BUILDINGS, CRP ACRES
2D specialty herbicide works by penetrating the tough outer-leaf coating of emerged weeds before moving through the plant to the roots. Once in the plant system, 2D stimulates it to outgrow its food reserve. Unlike other products that only burn back weeds (allowing them to return in a matter of weeks) 2D knocks down weeds roots and all.
Dynamic combination of triclopyr and clopyralid provides to the root control of 35 broadleaf weed species A single application provides long-lasting, broad-spectrum control that helps eliminate repeat treatments Labeled for use on a wide variety of cool and warm season turfgrass with a low-odor formulation that’s excellent for commercial and public applications
Do not treat warm-season turfgrass with Quali-Pro 2-D when the mowing height is less than 1/2 inch. Do not apply more than 1 pint of Quali-Pro 2-D per acre (0.37 fl oz or 2.5 tsp per 1000 sq ft) unless turfgrass injury can be tolerated. To minimize warm-season turfgrass injury, additional applications should be made at least four weeks apart. Avoid swath overlaps. The use of this herbicide in the spring when warm-season turfgrass is breaking dormancy may significantly delay green up of the turfgrass.
Do not apply Quali-Pro 2-D to Bermudagrass on sod farms. Quali-Pro 2-D may discolor and/or stunt turfgrass that is not well established or is stressed or weakened due to unfavorable climatic conditions, temperature extremes, drought, nematodes, or other factors which damage or weaken turf. Apply Quali-Pro 2-D only to healthy, well-established turfgrass that has a well-anchored root system.

Turfgrass and lawn uses are restricted to non-residential sites. Do not apply to Bermudagrass on sod farms. • The use of this herbicide in the spring when warm-season turfgrass is breaking dormancy may significantly delay green up of the turfgrass. • For ground application only. • Do not apply this product in a way that will contact workers or other persons, either directly or through drift. Only protected handlers may be in the area during application. • Do not apply to exposed roots of shallow-rooted trees and shrubs. • Do not allow sprays of Quali-Pro 2-D to contact exposed suckers and/or roots of trees and shrubs, or injury may occur. • This product can affect susceptible broadleaf plants directly through foliage and indirectly by root uptake from treated soil. Do not apply Quali-Pro 2-D directly to or allow spray drift to come into contact with flowers, grapes, tomatoes, potatoes, beans, lentils, peas, alfalfa, sunflowers, soybeans, safflower, or other desirable broadleaf crops and ornamental plants or soil where these sensitive crops will be planted the same season. • Do not reseed for three weeks after application. • Do not use Quali-Pro 2-D on golf course putting greens or tees. • Do not send grass clippings to a compost facility. • Do not collect grass clippings for mulch or compost. 5 • Applicator must give notice to landowners/property managers to not use grass clippings for composting. • Do not apply on ditches used to transport irrigation water. • Chemigation: Do not apply this product through any type of irrigation system. • Do not contaminate irrigation ditches or water used for irrigation or domestic purposes. • Do not apply where runoff or irrigation water may flow onto susceptible crops, as injury may result. TREATMENT OF TURFGRASS SPECIES NOT LISTED ON THE LABEL FOR QUALI-PRO 2-D Users who wish to use Quali-Pro 2-D on a turfgrass species not recommended on this label may determine the suitability for such uses by treating a small area at a recommended rate. Prior to treatment of larger areas, the treated area should be observed for any sign of herbicidal injury during 30 days of normal growing conditions to determine if the treatment is safe to the target species. The user assumes the responsibility for any plant damage or other liability resulting from use of Quali-Pro 2-D on species not recommended on this label. PREPARING THE SPRAY Add one-half the desired amount of clean water to spray tank. Add Quali-Pro 2-D and complete addition of water with agitation running. Mix thoroughly and continue agitation while spraying. APPLICATION DIRECTIONS Make application using equipment that will insure uniform coverage (see specific application directions below). Sprays should be applied when weeds are actively growing. Application under drought conditions may provide less than desirable results. Broadleaf weed species germinate at different times. Only emerged weeds present at time of application are controlled. Apply 1 to 2 pints of Quali-Pro 2-D per acre to control broadleaf weeds. A maximum of 0.19 Ib ae clopyralid/ 0.56 Ib ae triclopyr per acre (2 pints of Quali-Pro 2-D per acre) per application is recommended. To minimize turfgrass injury, repeat applications should be made not less than 4 weeks apart. Newly seeded turf should be mowed 2 or 3 times before treating. Do not water for 6 hours after application. Avoid overlapping of the spray pattern which could result in higher than recommended application rates. Rates above those recommended on this label could result in turf injury. Avoiding Injurious Spray Drift: Apply Quali-Pro 2-D in a manner to avoid contacting nearby susceptible crops or other desirable plants. Applications should be made only when hazards from spray drift are at a minimum. Very small quantities of spray which may not be visible may seriously injure susceptible plants including ornamental trees and shrubs. Do not spray when the wind will carry spray mist toward susceptible crops or ornamental plants. Ground Application With ground equipment, spray drift can be reduced by keeping the spray boom as low as possible; by applying no less than 20 gallons of spray per acre (except under Low Volume Application); by keeping the operating spray pressures at the manufacturer’s minimum recommended pressures for the specific nozzle type used; and by spraying when the wind velocity is low (follow state regulations). Avoid application under completely calm conditions which may be conducive to air inversion. In hand-gun applications, select the minimum pressure required to obtain adequate plant coverage without forming a mist. Do not apply with a mist blower. 6 Standard Broadcast Application Apply 1 to 2 pints of Quali-Pro 2-D in enough water to deliver 20 to 200 gallons of total spray mix per acre (0.5 to 5 gallons spray per 1000 sq ft). Higher application volumes may be used when Quali-Pro 2-D is tank mixed with fertilizers. Low Volume Application Apply 1 to 2 pints of Quali-Pro 2-D in enough water to deliver from 5 to 20 gallons of total spray mixture per acre (1/8 to 1/2 gallon spray per 1000 sq ft). Use low pressures and application equipment capable of delivering a uniform droplet size that can wet the weed leaf surface. To improve spray coverage, the addition of a non-ionic surfactant at a rate of 1/4 to 1/2 pint per acre may be used. Use the higher rates of surfactant for lower rates of product and lower spray volumes. The use of ULV applications is not suggested. Spot Treatment of Ornamental Turfgrass Using Portable Sprayers Mix 0.5 fl oz of Quali-Pro 2-D in enough water to make 1 gallon of spray and apply at any time broadleaf weeds are susceptible by wetting foliage of undesirable plants to point of runoff. This is enough spray to treat approximately 1000 sq ft of turf. WEEDS CONTROLLED AND USE RATES Use the higher rates when hard-to-control species are prevalent, when applications are made in late summer on mature weeds, and during periods of drought stress.
