Garlon® XRT specialty herbicide a new addition to Garlon family of herbicides

For years, foresters have relied on Forestry Garlon® XRT specialty herbicide for site preparation, mid-rotation release, forest roadside brush removal and establishment of wildlife openings. Now, that same triclopyr ester formulation is available for use on additional uses sites, including roadsides and utility rights-of-way, as simply Garlon XRT specialty herbicide.

Garlon_XRT“We’ve dropped forestry from the name because it’s no longer just a forestry herbicide,” says Matt Armson, U.S. product manager for the Dow AgroSciences industrial vegetation management (IVM) business. “While Garlon XRT will continue to offer the same results for our forestry customers, its benefits will now be available to roadside and utility vegetation managers as well to use in foliar, basal cut-stump, low-volume basal and dormant stem treatments.”

Garlon XRT is a selective, postemergence herbicide that controls many broadleaf weeds and woody plants. It is a unique, solventless, high-load formulation of triclopyr ester, which is now labeled for use in noncrop areas, including industrial manufacturing and storage sites, rights-of-way such as electrical power lines, communication lines and pipelines, roadsides, railroads, fence rows, nonirrigation ditch banks, forests and in the establishment and maintenance of wildlife openings, including grazed areas within these sites.

Garlon XRT is available now and can be purchased in 2.5-gallon containers or 30-gallon drums.
