Proven control

Milestone® herbicide is labeled for consistent and dependable control of susceptible woody brush and weeds. A liquid formulation, it delivers increased efficacy when tank-mixed. Milestone enhances control of tank mixes in nearly any application, and it improves hardwood and conifer control. And the residual control of Milestone reduces the number of treatments needed.

Unmatched flexibility

Milestone gives vegetation managers and applicators exceptional flexibility. Use it in almost any treatment method — such as broadcast, foliar, spot, cut-stump, basal, guardrail side trim and dormant-stem — or as a complement with grass herbicides for total vegetation control. It is tank-mix-compatible with essentially any other product and at any rate and ratio that may be required. It can be used to pursue weeds and brush on grazed areas and wildlife openings, to help restore native habitats and to promote desirable grass and forb growth. Milestone is also approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for use in treating vegetation in areas grazed by livestock and has no grazing restrictions, and it can be applied to the water’s edge.

Excellent environmental profile

Milestone has been reviewed and registered under the Reduced Risk Pesticide Initiative of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. It can be utilized across nearly all vegetation management sites, including wetlands and certain aquatic settings. Milestone won’t harm most desirable grasses and forbs. It preserves most warm- and cool-season perennial grasses over the long term, helping to establish desirable plant populations.
