This article introduces basic science, plant processes, and environmental factors influencing herbicide uptake, translocation, and mode of action.Read More
Now is a good time to re-familiarize yourself with herbicide labels and expand your understanding of the science and skills required to select, apply, and assess the effectiveness of herbicide treatments.Read More
A technical guide for wildlife habitat managers and consultants to improve understanding about how and when to integrate herbicides into a habitat management plan. This research was a joint project between Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, Texas A&M AgriLife Research, and Dow AgroSciences.

Shredded plastic from pesticide containers can be re-used for non-consumer items such as fence posts, pallets, field drain tiles, speed bumps, decorative fence and parking stops. Learn about pesticide container recycling opportunities in your area.Read More
Find answers to questions like: What is the difference between Vastlan™ specialty herbicide (Garlon 3A) and Garlon 4 Ultra? What is the difference between modified cut stump and cut stump applications? When do I add Milestone to either Vastlan or Garlon 4 Ultra to control Russian olive and saltcedar?Read More
The family of aminopyralid herbicides is an important part of any vegetation manager’s program that includes weed, vine and brush control. This 8-page brochure discusses product features, mode of action, chemistry, toxicity, resistance, environmental studies, volatility, and more.Read More
Failure to understand product label information regarding grazing tolerances can lead to unintended consequences such as off-target crop damage and the rejection of livestock for human consumption. Any herbicide that is applied to land that is subsequently used for grazing must have grazing tolerances spelled out on the label.Read More
Vastlan™ Specialty Herbicide, developed by Dow AgroSciences, controls woody plant species and annual and perennial broadleaf weeds on natural areas, rangeland, pastures, forest, and non-crop areas.Read More
Answers common questions about the herbicide registration process such as: How many years does it typically take for a pesticide to go through the registration process? What type and how many studies are conducted on a pesticide prior to registration? What happens after a pesticide is registered?
Native perennial grasses are ecologically and economically important in the Intermountain, Great Basin and Northern Great Plains Regions. Herbicides are often used to control invasive broadleaf weeds in these habitat types; therefore, understanding the tolerance of desirable grass species to herbicide treatments is important for land managers.Read More
Dow AgroSciences was requested to provide information on the possible effects of several herbicides to honeybees as a result of roadside and Right-of-Way applications made for vegetation management objectives, including Triclopyr (Garlon® 3A, Garlon 4 Ultra), Glyphosate (Rodeo® and Accord® XRT II), Aminopyralid (Milestone®, Capstone®) Aminopyralid/Metsulfuron-methyl (Opensight®), and Imazapyr (Arsenal, Habitat).
