Basagran® T&O Herbicide

A Better Postemergent Control.

Basagran T&O herbicide offers reliable, cost-effective postemergent control of tough broadleaf weeds, yellow nutsedge, annual sedges and more. It can also provide weed control in ornamentals. When used as directed, Basagran T&O herbicide:

  • Provides a cost-effective nutsedge control program.
  • Effectively eliminates underground tubers.
  • Controls thistle, wild mustard, lawn burweed and other difficult-to-control broadleaf weeds.
  • Delivers effective postemergence activity, which allows flexibly timed weed control.
  • Can be easily tank-mixed with other herbicides to affordably increase their spectrum of control.

UPDATE: New research has shown excellent crop safety when Basagran T&O herbicide is used in and around selected woody container- and field-grown ornamentals. Watch for a new and expanded label soon.

Basagran T&O Herbicide Goes Over-The-Top

As noted on the label, Basagran T&O herbicide 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:

  • Ajuga
  • Dusty Miller
  • English Ivy
  • Impatiens, ‘Balsam’
  • Liriope (L. muscari and L. spicata)
  • Marigold
  • Ornamental Cabbage
  • Pachysandra
  • Petunia
  • Snapdragon

Woody Ornamentals:

  • Arborivatae
  • Boxwood ‘Winter Gem’
  • Burford Holly (Ilex cornuta)
  • Compacta Holly (Ilex crenata)
  • Hatfieldii Yew
  • Hicks Yew
  • Japanese Yew ‘Densiformis’
  • Mugo Pine
  • Red Oak

Landscape Use

Basagran T&O herbicide 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 herbicide 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 herbicide that have similar stated ornamental plant tolerances.

Weeds Controlled by Basagran T&O herbicide

In selected container- and field-grown ornamentals, Basagran T&O herbicide controls:

  • Annual Sedges
  • Canada Thistle
  • Common Purslane
  • Dayflower
  • Galinsoga
  • Lawn Burweed
  • Musk Thistle
  • Ragweed
  • Spurweed
  • Wild Mustard
  • Yellow Nutsedge

Where to Use Basagran T&O herbicide

Ornamentals: Field and container nurseries and landscape or grounds maintenance

Turf: Golf courses, residential and commercial lawns, sod farms and athletic fields

Noncropland Areas: Noncropland areas

Keys to Success

Basagran T&O herbicide 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 herbicide has little soil residual activity. Refer to product label for additional information.

Always read and follow label directions.
