KARMEX® USE RATES AND RESTRICTIONS
KARMEX® XP is recommended for control of weeds to aid in
the establishment of hybrid poplar plantings.
Apply at 1.0 to 3.0
pounds per acre depending upon soil texture and organic matter
Use 1.0 to 2.0 pounds per acre on coarse textured soils
and 2.0 to 3.0 pounds per acre on medium to fine textured soils.
Do not use on gravelly soils or on any soil having less than 0.5%
organic matter as injury to trees may result.
Injury may result from applications to poplar plantings grown on
sandy soil with low organic matter with sprinkler irrigation.
When applied in a band, the application rate will be in proportion
to the area banded on a per acre basis.
Apply in late winter or early spring as a uniform broadcast spray
before or after planting but prior to bud swell, or as a directed
spray after bud swell.
Apply before weeds emerge or after
emergence while weeds are small.
Some rainfall or water is
necessary to move KARMEX® XP into the weed root zone
before weeds become well established.
If weeds are present at
time of treatment, add a surfactant at 1 to 2 quarts per 100
gallons of spray solution.
PRE-PLANT: Take precautions to prevent treated soil (usually
top 1 inch) from coming into contact with roots of trees during
the planting process as injury may result.
POST-PLANT (BROADCAST): It is best to wait until rain or
irrigation has settled the soil around the newly planted trees
before applying KARMEX® XP. If trees are dormant, a
broadcast application can be made.
POST- PLANT (DIRECTED): If buds have started to swell,
use a directed spray pattern that prevents
KARMEX® XP from contact with trees as injury may result.
During the growing season (from bud swell to leaf drop)
KARMEX® XP may be applied (alone or with tank mix)
between tree rows with shielded or directed spray equipment.
KARMEX® XP can be tank mixed with a registered glyphosate
herbicide pre-plant and as a directed spray to broaden the
spectrum of weeds controlled and improve post-emergence
Use 1.0 to 3.0 pounds KARMEX® XP plus glyphosate
herbicide (according to label recommendations) depending upon
soil type and weeds to be controlled.
Note: There are several formulations of glyphosate herbicide.
Check the glyphosate herbicide label to verify that the intended
use as a pre-plant or post-directed spray on hybrid poplar
plantations is allowed.
Avoid contact of glyphosate herbicide
with foliage, green stems, trees or other desirable vegetation
because severe damage or destruction may result.
KARMEX® XP herbicide can be tank mixed with other
products that are registered for use on hybrid poplars and where
the labeled method of application and timing of application are
the same as for KARMEX® XP.
