Buckbrush Control


Chaparral™ herbicide delivers a more effective option for controlling buckbrush, other woody plants and broadleaf weeds and offers other features that make it a good choice for the land.

  • Provides a level of residual weed activity not available with other options for buckbrush control
  • Controls other shrubs, absinth wormwood (wormwood sage) and Canada thistle, which often grow in the same complex with buckbrush
  • A wide application window allows treatment on your schedule
  • Unique dry formulation makes mixing easier
  • No license required to buy or apply Chaparral1
  • Does not contain 2,4-D
  • No grazing or haying restrictions for any class of livestock, including lactating dairy cows, horses (including lactating mares) and meat animals prior to slaughter. However, label precautions do apply to forage treated with Chaparral and to manure from animals that have consumed treated forage within the last three days. Consult the label for full details.
  • Low use rate for buckbrush — 2 to 3 ounces per acre — means less active ingredient applied
  • Multiple modes of action helps broaden the control spectrum
  • Tank-mix-compatible with other herbicides for effective one-pass weed and brush control

  • Common mullein
  • Canada thistle
  • Curlycup gumweed
  • Absinth wormwood
