Instructions:
When plants reach the first flower stage, apply 3/4 fluid ounces of Hi-Yield Triclopyr Ester per 1000 square feet. For best results, apply using ground equipment in a total spray volume of 40 gallons per acre. To provide more complete wetting and coverage of the foliage, an agricultural surfactant may be added at the manufacturer’s recommended rate. To control sparse plant stands, use spot treatments. For spot treatment use a 1 to 1.5% solution of Hi-Yield Triclopyr Ester in water (1 1/4 to 2 fluid ounces of Hi-Yield Triclopyr Ester in 1 gallon total spray mixture) and spray the entire plant to completely wet the foliage. In Florida, control of tropical soda apple may be improved by using the following management practices: 
  • Mow plants to a height of 3 inches every 50 to 60 days or whenever they reach flowering. Continue mowing on this schedule through April. 
  • In late May to June (50 to 60 days after the April mowing), apply a broadcast treatment of Hi-Yield Triclopyr Ester. 
  • To control any remaining plants or to thin stands of plants that germinate following a broadcast treatment, use spot treatments.
