Pasture Weed Control Database
Apply 1.5 pt/A PastureGard HL in the late spring to early -summer before bloom. The plants should be 12 to 15 inches tall with fully developed leaves. Increase the rate to 2 pints per acre for dense stands or later stages of growth. Use a minimum spray volume of 10 gallons per acre. Higher application volumes are preferred. For spot application, mix 6 pints PastureGard HL per 100 gallons of water or 1 fluid ounce PastureGard HL per gallon of water. Apply the spray uniformly and thoroughly wet the Sericea lespedeza foliage. Metsulfuron 60 DF at 1.0 oz/A plus 0.25% nonionic surfactant is an excellent treatment for sericea control.
