Application Instructions

Applied Alone. For best results:

  • Apply Octane at rates of 1 to 4 fl oz per acre for control of seedling, non-mature winter and summer annual weeds and/or for temporary burndown of weeds listed on Control Spectrum page.
  • Tank-mixing Octane with other broadleaf herbicides may be needed for control of larger winter and summer annual weeds.

Applied in Tank Mix. For best result:

  • Apply Octane at rates of 0.7 to 1.5 fl oz per acre in tank-mix combinations with herbicides registered for use such as amines, esters, and salts of 2,4-D, chloroprop, dicamba, mecoprop, triclopyr, fluroxypyr, and various combinations of these products for control of annual weeds and perennial weeds
  • Residual, long-term control of the target weeds is as defined by labeling of the companion product
  • For tank-mixing with herbicides, always read and follow the product label directions

Spray Volume Notes:

  • Octane is a contact herbicide that causes herbicidal symptoms only to plant parts that come into contact with spray applications
  • Proper spray volume and uniform coverage are important to maximize efficacy of Octane.
  • Uniform sprays should be applied at 20 to 200 gal per acre (0.5 to 4.5 gal per 1000 sq ft)
  • Higher spray volumes should be used to target whole weed population and/or weeds contained in dense turfgrass canopies

Use of Adjuvants Notes:

  • Addition of surfactants (spreaders/stickers) to the spray solution will improve efficacy and contact activity of Octane
  • Follow manufacturer’s use rates for specific sites
