Basagran T/O Goes Over-The-Top
As noted on the label, Basagran T/O can be applied over the top of many common woody ornamental plant species. The following species are tolerant of post over-the-top applications:
Groundcovers and Bedding Plants:
- Dusty Miller
- English Ivy
- Impatiens, ‘Balsam’
- Liriope (L. muscari and L. spicata)
- Ornamental Cabbage
- Boxwood ‘Winter Gem’
- Burford Holly (Ilex cornuta)
- Compacta Holly (Ilex crenata)
- Hatfieldii Yew
- Hicks Yew
- Japanese Yew ‘Densiformis’
- Mugo Pine
- Red Oak
Basagran T/O can be used around all other landscape oranmentals, trees, shrubs and flowering plants not listed above when applied as a directed spray. Spray away from the foliage or canopy of the plant and direct the spray to the base of the plant. IMPORTANT: The use of Basagran T/O around or under the drip line of sycamore trees and rhododendron plant species will result in unacceptable injury.
Since ornamental plant safety is always a concern, consult the label and only choose to tank-mix other herbicides with Basagran T/O that have similar stated ornamental plant tolerances.

Keys to Success
Basagran T/O must be combined with a crop oil concentrate (COC) at 2 pints per acre for performance on targeted species. Applications to ornamentals should be directed around the base of the plant. See the specimen label for instructions on over-the-top applications to selected ornamentals. Good coverage and a 4-hour rain-free period are keys to good activation on susceptible species. Repeat application in 10 to 14 days to improve long-term results when targeting hard-to-control perennial species such as nutsedge and thistles. Basagran T/O has little soil residual activity. Refer to product label for additional information.
Always read and follow label directions.
