Pre- and post-emergent, non-selective herbicide for control of floating and emergent vegetation in a variety of applications that can help to reclaim aquatic environments and riparian areas.
Ecomazapyr 2 SL may ONLY be used for application to control undesirable
emergent and floating aquatic vegetation in and around standing and flowing
water, including estuarine and marine sites.
Ecomazapyr 2 SL may also be
used to control undesirable vegetation growing in or around surface water in
wetland, riparian and terrestrial habitats where applications may inadvertently
contact surface water.
Ecomazapyr 2 SL may also be used for cut stump, cut
stem and frill and girdle treatments within aquatic sites.
Ecomazapyr 2 SL is an aqueous solution intended to be mixed with water and surfactant(s)
for application to control floating and emergent undesirable vegetation (see AQUATIC
WEEDS CONTROLLED BY ECOMAZAPYR 2 SL section and the ADDITONAL WEEDS
CONTROLLED BY ECOMAZAPYR 2 SL section) in or near bodies of water which may be
flowing, non-flowing or transient.
Ecomazapyr 2 SL may be applied to aquatic sites that
include lakes, rivers, streams, ponds, seeps, drainage ditches, canals, reservoirs, swamps,
bogs, marshes, estuaries, bays, brackish water, transitional areas between terrestrial and
aquatic sites and seasonal wet areas. See AQUATIC USES, PRECAUTIONS AND
RESTRICTIONS section of this label for precautions, restrictions, and instructions on aquatic
Ecomazapyr 2 SL may also be used for cut stump, cut stem and frill and girdle
treatments within aquatic sites (see AERIAL APPLICATIONS AND GROUND APPLICATIONS
sections for additional details).
Read and observe the following directions if aquatic sites are present in terrestrial non-crop
areas and are part of the intended treatment area:
Ecomazapyr 2 SL controls most annual and perennial grasses, broadleaf weeds and many
brush and vine species. Ecomazapyr 2 SL will provide some residual control of undesirable
species that germinate above the waterline. Ecomazapyr 2 SL controls vegetation by
absorbtion through emergent leaves and stems, from which it is translocated throughout the
plant, where it accumulates in rapidly-growing meristematic tissue.Treated plants stop growing
soon after treatment. Chlorosis (yellowing of plant tissue) first appears in the newest
leaves, and necrosis spreads from this point. In perennials, Ecomazapyr 2 SL is translocated
into and kills underground or submerged storage organs to prevent regrowth.
Chlorosis and tissue necrosis may not be apparent in some plant species until two or more
weeks after application. Complete kill of plants may not occur for several weeks. Applications
of Ecomazapyr 2 SL are rainfast within one hour after treatment.
Ecomazapyr 2 SL will not control plants which are completely submerged or have a majority
or their foliage under water.
Ecomazapyr 2 SL must be applied to the emergent foliage of the target vegetation, since it
has little-to-no activity on submerged vegetation. Residual concentrations of Ecomazapyr 2
SL from direct application to water are not expected to be sufficient to provide control of
Apply Ecomazapyr 2 SL so as to maximize spray contact onto the
target vegetation while minimizing overspray onto adjacent or underlying water. For optimum
performance, include a surfactant (see ADJUVANTS section for specific recommendations)
in the spray solution and apply to actively growing weeds. Ecomazapyr 2 SL may be applied
in spot treatments by using low-volume directed application techniques or broadcast by
using ground equipment, water craft or helicopter.
Apply Ecomazapyr 2 SL with surface or helicopter application equipment in at least 5 gallons
of water per acre. When applying by helicopter, follow directions under the AERIAL
APPLICATIONS section of this label, otherwise refer to section on GROUND APPLICATIONS
when using surface equipment.
Applications to moving bodies of water should be made while traveling upstream to prevent
concentration of this herbicide in water. DO NOT apply to bodies of water or portions of bodies
of water where emergent and/or floating weeds do not exist.
