For the control of woody plants and annual and
perennial broadleaf weeds in non-crop areas, including
industrial manufacturing and storage sites, rights-ofway
such as electrical power lines, communication
lines, pipelines, roadsides, railroads, fence rows, nonirrigation
ditch banks, forests and in the establishment
and maintenance of wildlife openings. Use on these
sites may include application to grazed areas.
The herbicide is ideal for fence rows, rights-of-way, railroads and roadsides. The Element 4 Herbicide also controls box elder, buckthorn, locust, sumac and more. Recommended applications include industrial manufacturing and storage sites, rights-of-way such as electrical power lines, roadsides, pipelines, fence rows, railroads, forests and wildlife openings. Application rates range from 1 to 8 qts. per acre. May also be mixed with oil (diesel fuel, fuel oil or kerosene) or oil/water mixtures for basal bark or cut stump treatments. 2.5-gal. jug. USA made. ELEMENT 4 Triclopyr Herbicide controls woody plants, plus annual and perennial broadleaf weeds in non-crop areas. ELEMENT 4 consist of active Ingredient: 61.6% Triclopyr . It is sold in quantity of Gallom
Element 4 is formulated as a low volatile ester. However, the
combination of spray contact with impervious surfaces, such as roads
and rocks, and increasing ambient air temperatures, may result in an
increase in the volatility potential for this herbicide, increasing a risk for
off-target injury to sensitive crops such as grapes and tomatoes.
Apply no more than 1/2 gallon of Element 4 (2 lb ae of triclopyr) per
acre per growing season on range and pasture sites, including rightsof-
way, fence rows or any area where grazing or harvesting is allowed.
On forestry sites, Element 4 may be used at rates up to 6 quarts (6 lb
ae of triclopyr) per acre per year.
Element 4 may be used at rates up to 8 quarts (8 lb ae of triclopyr)
per acre per year on non-crop areas including industrial manufacturing
and storage sites, rights-of-way such as electrical power lines,
communication lines, pipelines, roadsides and railroads, fence
rows, non-irrigation ditch banks.
Before using any recommended tank mixtures, read the directions and all
precautions on both labels.
For best results apply when woody plants and weeds are actively
growing. When hard to control species such as ash, blackgum, choke
cherry, elm, maples (other than vine or big leaf), oaks, pines, or winged
elm are prevalent, during applications made during late summer when the
plants are mature, or during drought conditions, use the higher rates of
Element 4 alone or in combination with Tordon® 101 Mixture specialty
herbicide or Tordon K herbicide. Tordon 101 Mixture and Tordon K are
restricted use pesticides. Tordon 101 Mixture and Tordon K are not
registered for use in the states of California and Florida.
When using Element 4 in combination with 2,4-D low volatile ester
herbicide, generally the higher rates of Element 4 should be used for
satisfactory brush control.
Use the higher dosage rates when brush approaches an average of
15 feet in height or when the brush covers more than 60% of the area
to be treated. If lower rates are used on hard to control species,
resprouting may occur the year following treatment.
On sites where easy to control brush species dominate, rates less than
those listed may be effective. Consult state or local extension personnel
for such information.
