Milestone® specialty herbicide

Label | SDS

The most flexible herbicide available, Milestone offers excellent invasive weed control, across a wide variety of use sites. It does so with little-to-no damage to grasses, forbs or other key members of the native plant community, allowing you to restore native habitats to their full potential.

Restore Wildlife Habitat.
On rights-of-way, creating an aesthetic ecosystem that is diverse in terms of plants and animals, is not only good for the environment, but it offers relationship-building opportunities with landowners and wildlife organizations alike. The proven control of Milestone on invasive weed species coupled with its selectivity to desirable forbs, shrubs and grasses means it has the ability to restore habitat to its natural state — making it attractive to wildlife, including pollinators.

Proven Control

Proven Rights-Of-Way Control
Milestone is labeled for consistent and dependable control of susceptible woody brush and weeds. A liquid formulation, it delivers increased efficacy when tank-mixed. Milestone enhances control of tank mixes in nearly any application, and improves hardwood and conifer control. And the residual control of Milestone reduces the number of treatments needed.

Proven Roadside Control
Milestone offers proven control of noxious and invasive weed, vine and brush species with class-leading grass safety, promoting healthy bermudagrass and bahiagrass roadsides. It provides extended pre- and postemergence control of target weeds and brush for fewer needed treatments.

Incredible Flexibility

Milestone® gives you exceptional flexibility. Use it in almost any treatment method, such as broadcast, foliar, spot, cut-stump, basal, guardrail side trim, dormant-stem or as a complement with grass herbicides for total vegetation control. It is tank-mix-compatible with essentially any other product, and at any rate and ratio that may be required. And you can pursue weeds and brush on grazed areas and wildlife openings, helping restore native habitats and promoting desirable grass and forb growth.

Grazing Tolerances

Milestone® has undergone extensive testing and achieved grazing tolerances established by the U.S. EPA. It is EPA-approved for use in treating vegetation in areas grazed by livestock and has no grazing restrictions, and Milestone can be applied to the water’s edge. You also can pursue weeds and brush on grazed areas and wildlife openings, helping restore native habitats and promoting desirable grass and forb growth.

Grass and Forb Tolerances

Milestone® won’t harm most desirable grasses and forbs. It preserves most warm- and cool-season perennial grasses over the long term, helping you to establish desirable plant populations.

Environmental Profile

Milestone® specialty herbicide has the best environmental profile of any herbicide in the vegetation management industry. It is the first and only vegetation management herbicide to be reviewed and registered under the EPA's Reduced Risk Pesticide Initiative. Because it is essentially nonvolatile and has low use rates, Milestone provides effective control with reduced exposure to workers and the environment.
