When you want to control both mesquite and yucca at the same time with the same treatment.
1. Gather the necessary equipment.
A pump-up garden sprayer, backpack sprayer, or sprayer mounted on a 4-wheel all-terrain vehicle can all be used to apply the herbicide spray (ATV). A ConeJetTM5500-X1 adjustable cone nozzle should be attached to the spray gun. Install a 100-mesh screen/check valve beneath the nozzle to prevent clogging and dripping.
2. Combine the herbicide and the diesel fuel.
To control yucca, mix RemedyTMherbicide with diesel fuel oil or vegetable oil. The oil guarantees that the herbicide is completely covered and absorbed by the plant. 15 percent RemedyTM and 85 percent diesel fuel or vegetable oil is the suggested blend (see mixing table below). Using vegetable oil instead of diesel fuel oil raises the expense, although in some cases it may be preferable. JLB Oil PlusTM is a vegetable oil that is recognized to blend well with RemedyTM. When combining RemedyTM and oil, pour the needed amount of RemedyTM into a mixing container or spray tank, then add enough oil to get the desired total volume. Shake or stir the mixture vigorously until it is evenly distributed.
Also available is a “pre-mix” of RemedyTM and vegetable oil. Remedy RTUTM is the name of this “pre-mix.” Simply pour Remedy RTUTM from the jar into the sprayer and apply to yucca as directed by the Brush Busters for the Remedy + Oil Whorl Spray.
To aid identify treated plants, one ounce of Hi-LightTM blue spray-marking dye can be applied to each gallon of spray mix or Remedy RTUTM.
3. Douse the Yucca with water.
When used throughout the growing season, the Remedy + Oil Whorl Spray is most effective. Make sure your spray gun has the 5500-X1 nozzle installed. Spray for at least 2 seconds with the nozzle in the center of each whorl (slowly say “one Mississippi, twoMississippi: while depressing the trigger on the spray gun).
If applied properly, the Remedy + diesel fuel mix will be the least priced herbicide and oil combination – roughly 2 cents per plant. If you use vegetable oil or Remedy RTUTM, the cost will be higher.
- As the number of yucca plants and whorls per acre grows, the expense of treatment rises quickly.
- When used as a stemspray, this approach will also suppress smooth-bark mesquite (see Extension document L-5144, “How to Beat Mesquite”).
With what do you combine the remedy?
Remedy Ultra should be mixed with water at a concentration of 1 to 1.5 percent (1 to 1 1/2 gallons of Remedy Ultra per 100 gallons total spray mixture, or 0.78 to 1.92 fl oz per gallon) for spot treatments.
What are your thoughts on ultra remedy?
Apply Remedy Ultra herbicide in broadcast applications at rates of 1 pint to 4 quarts per acre in a total spray volume of 5 or more gallons per acre by air or 10 to 20 gallons per acre by ground in a total spray volume of 5 or more gallons per acre by air or 10 to 20 gallons per acre by ground. When weeds are actively growing and not impacted by drought or other environmental factors, treat them.
How long does Remedy Ultra take to work?
While Triclopyr has a short burndown duration, Remedy Ultra Herbicide can take 7-21 days to see a complete hill. Temperatures, rain, soil moisture, and other factors will affect the burndown time. This answer was useful to 2 out of 3 people.
When should you use homeopathic remedies?
When the plants you’re treating are actively developing and the temperature is above 55 degrees, it’s the perfect time to administer Remedy Ultra Herbicide. This answer was useful to 19 out of 20 people.
What’s the best way to combine Remedy Ultra and diesel?
Prepare a 2 percent v/v Remedy Ultra solution in diesel or fuel oil (13 fl oz of Remedy Ultra in 5 gallons of spray mixture).
Mix 25 to 30 gallons of Remedy Ultra with 10 percent penetrant, such as Cidekick, in enough oil to form 100 gallons of spray mixture to control or suppress vulnerable woody plants. Streamline basal bark treatments work best on stems with a basal diameter of less than 4 inches. Use a backpack or knapsack sprayer with equipment that allows for a directed straight stream spray. Apply the spray to one side of stems with a basal diameter of less than 3 inches in a 2- to 3-inch broad band. Within 30 minutes of applying the correct amount of spray mixture, the treated zone should widen to encircle the stem. Treat both sides of stems with a basal diameter of 3 to 4 inches. Apply the spray to bark that is 12 to 24 inches above the ground.
Make oil-water emulsions with diesel, fuel oil, or kerosene, as well as an emulsifier like Sponto 712 or Triton X-100. Before preparing oil-water emulsion sprays in the mixing tank, perform a jar test to ensure that the spray mix is compatible.
The label does not suggest that both should be used. Using both would be considered an off-label application. It is suggested that you stick to the label and only use one or the other.
What is the duration of treatment in the soil?
Triclopyr’s half-life in soils has been observed to range from 3.7 to 314 days, with an average of 30 days depending on the formulation used and the soil and ambient circumstances.
What do you use to spray the mesquite trees?
Make sure you are properly safeguarding your skin and eyes with protective equipment before applying any chemical pesticides (goggles, gloves and long-sleeved clothing).
To kill mesquite, we recommend applying a selective herbicide like Dicamba Plus 2,4-D. We recommend treating the mesquite in one of two ways: stem spray or leaf spray. You’ll need to chop the tree down to the stump and then spray the Dicamba Plus 2,4-D Herbicide to the stem directly.
The leaf spray strategy would be preferable for mesquite with many basal stems. The main drawback to the leaf spray approach is the plant’s height. Hand spraying larger mesquite would be more difficult.
Calculate the square footage of the treatment area to determine how much Dicamba Plus 2,4-D Herbicide you’ll need. This can be done by measuring the area in feet and then multiplying the length by the width (length x width = square footage).
For each crop season, the label recommends spraying 4 pints of Dicamba Plus 2,4-D Herbicide per acre. It will take at least three crop seasons to completely eradicate mesquite.
We also recommend using a spray marking dye to identify plants that have been sprayed and to determine if you are applying enough herbicide.
Using a saw or an ax, chop the mesquite down to its stem or stump. It’s critical to tune your nozzle to create a coarse mist in a small cone when employing the stem spray approach. Water the Mesquite’s trunk lightly from the ground line, making sure to wet it on all sides.
Spraying the stems can be done at any time of the year. Controlling multiple stem or rough-barked mesquite is more difficult. The efficacy of this procedure can be harmed by dense vegetation surrounding the base stems.
Leaf sprays can be administered using a number of tools, but the most basic is a basic pump-up sprayer or, for larger trees, a backpack sprayer. A spray rig could potentially be connected to a truck. A cone nozzle, regardless of kind, is optimal for delivering a coarse spray.
The leaf spray method involves lightly spraying the foliage till it glistens, but not to the point of runoff. However, it is vital to spray all areas of the plant so that a few droplets of herbicide land on all of the leaves.
A surfactant may be added to the mixture for leaf spraying to help the product cling to the leaves better. We recommend using 0.33 oz. of Alligare 90 Wetting Agent per completed gallon of herbicide.
How much diesel should I add to my Roundup?
How much diesel should I add to my Roundup? According to Homesteading Today, a surficant can be made by mixing a tiny amount of roundup with diesel. For every 100 gallons of spray, they recommend utilizing one gallon.
