2,4-D Broadleaf Weed Killer

Keep Your Crops And Turf Safe From Broadleaf Weeds

Whether you’re a grower of corn, soybeans, small grains, pastures, rangelands or other crops, or you just want to cultivate healthy turf on your homestead, we have what you need to protect your crops from invasive broadleaf weeds.

This product is a water-dilutable amine especially prepared for use on crops and weeds where a susceptible crop in the near vicinity may be injured by a more volatile product. It is recommended for control of numerous broadleaf weeds and certain 2,4-D susceptible woody plants without injury to most established grasses.

Where to use:

For control of many broadleaf weeds and brush control in:

Corn Small Grains Rangelands
Soybeans Pastures Other listed crops

In cropland, 2,4-D is more effective than amines for controlling hard-to-kill weeds such as bindweed, thistle, smartweed, wild garlic, curly dock, tansy ragwort and wild onions.

For selective weeding in non-crop areas such as:

Lawns Rights-of-way Roadsides
Vacant Lots Athletic fields Parks
Sod farms and similar turf areas Industrial Sites Drainage ditch banks
Cemeteries Airfields Utility power lines
Ornamental turf (residential, industrial and institutional) Golf courses (fairways, aprons, tees and roughs) Fence rows

Also for aquatic weed control, control of trees by injection and tank mixes.

When to use:

For best results, apply this product as a water or oil spray during warm weather when young, succulent weeds or brush are actively growing.

Application under drought conditions often will give poor results.

The lower recommended rates will be satisfactory on susceptible annual weeds. For perennial weeds and conditions such as the very dry areas of the western states, where control is difficult, the higher recommended rates should be used.

How to use:

General Weed Control

Use 0.5 gallon of product per acre (2.9 tablespoons of this product per 1,000 sq. ft.). Use sufficient amount of total spray—water plus chemical— for thorough and uniform coverage. Apply when most annual broadleaf weeds are still young and growing vigorously. Apply when perennial and biennial weeds are actively growing and near the bud stage, but before flowering. Thoroughly wet weeds when applying this mixture.

General Weed Control Precautions: Do not use on herbaceous ground covers or creeping grass such as bent. Legumes will usually be damaged or killed. Deep-rooted perennials such as Bindweed, Whitetop, Perennial sowthistle, Blue lettuce, Nettle, Bur ragweed, Canada thistle and other noxious perennials somewhat resistant to 2,4-D may require repeat applications to kill. Do not use on freshly seeded turf until grass is well established. Delay reseeding for 30 days.

Post-emergence (annual and perennial weeds): Limited to 2 applications per year. Maximum of 4.25 pints of product per acre (3.1 tablespoons of product per 1,000 sq. ft.) per application. Minimum of 30 days between applications.

Post-emergence (woody plants): Limited to 1 application per year. Maximum of 8.25 pints of product per acre (6.0 tablespoons of product per 1,000 sq. ft.) per year.

Ornamental Turf Lawns

Use 2 to 4.2 pints of product per acre per application per site in 40 to 180 gallons of water (1.4 to 3.0 tablespoons of this product per 1,000 sq. ft. per application per site in 1 to 4 gallons of water) to give good coverage to one acre on established stands of perennial grasses. Usually 4 pints per acre (2.9 tablespoons per 1,000 sq. ft.) provides good weed control under average conditions. The maximum number of broadcast applications per treatment site is 2 per year.
Treat when weeds are young and actively growing. Do not apply to newly seeded grasses until well established. Use higher rate for hard-to-kill weeds. Use higher rate when using higher volume of water per acre. Do not exceed specified application dosages for any area.

Ditch banks: For shoreline weeds, allow no more than 2 ft. overspray onto water.
Applications to non-cropland areas are not applicable to treatment of commercial timber or other plants being grown for sale or other commercial use, or for commercial seed production,  or for research purposes.


Do not use on creeping grasses such as bent and St. Augustine and centipede — except for spot treating — or on newly seeded turf until grass is well established. Limited to 2 applications per year. Maximum of 3.25 pints of product per acre (2.3 tablespoons of this product per 1,000 sq. ft.) per application. The maximum seasonal rate is 6.25 pints of product per acre (4.5 tablespoons of this product per 1,000 sq. ft.) excluding spot treatments.


Do not apply this product through any type of irrigation system. Do not use in or near a greenhouse. Do not apply this product in a way that will contact workers or other persons, either directly or through drift. Only protected handlers may be in the area during application.

    Providing nutrition when little or no pasture forage is available constitutes the single largest expense associated with most livestock operations. In most cases, hay is the most logical type of stored feed to use. Generally, the less hay required, the greater the cost effectiveness of an operation, and how hay [...]

  2. Job Done Right Podcast Episode 5: The Do's and Don'ts of RM43

    RM43 is the most effective, commercially available product for killing and preventing grass and weeds. It was developed based on customer requests for a more potent herbicide that wouldn’t require respraying during the growing season. This episode of our podcast features Ragan & Massey co-owner Tom Ragan. It first aired [...]


    Livestock producers are aware (in fact, as a result of droughts we have had in recent years they are painfully aware) of the fact that dry weather reduces forage growth, which lowers pasture and hay forage growth. This in turn results in a need for more hay or other stored [...]
