For the control of Nettles, Docks, brushwood and certain broadleaved Weeds in grassland, forestry and non-crop areas.
Contains: 103,6 g/l triclopyr + 93 g/l 2,4-D

SC BRUSHKILLER is a brush- and weedkiller that can be used in grassland, forestry and non-crop areas (such as industrial manufacturing and storage sites, rights-of-way such as electrical power lines, communication lines, pipelines, roadsides, railroads, fence rows, non-irrigation ditch banks, around farm buildings or wildlife openings and green cover on land temporarily removed from production). SC BRUSHKILLER contains 2 active substances: 2,4-D (aryloxyacids family) and triclopyr (picolinic acid family), both active substances acting in a foliar and systemic manner. Due to the association of triclopyr and 2,4-D, SC BRUSHKILLER is very efficient against a wide range of broadleaved weeds and woody plants.
As the product is safe to grasses treated areas will remain green.

DO NOT apply SC BRUSHKILLER to grassland that has been established for less than twelve months.
DO NOT ALLOW SPRAY TO DRIFT into greenhouses or onto other agricultural or horticultural crops (grapevines, orchards, vegetables, ornamentals, oilseed rape, tobacco), amenity plantings or gardens. SC BRUSHKILLER must not be used in any area under protection (glasshouses, tunnels etc). SC BRUSHKILLER contains an ester formulation and vapor may be liable to drift under hot conditions. Assess the risk to plants in the vicinity before spraying. DO NOT allow spray applications to come into any contact with desirable broad-leaved trees. Although when completely dormant most species of conifers are not susceptible to SC BRUSHKILLER, contact with spray should be avoided. DO NOT sow any crop into an area treated with SC BRUSHKILLER for at least 4 weeks after application. SC BRUSHKILLER is toxic to aquatic organisms; do not treat if the distance between the treated areas and surface water or ditches is less than 20 m. Keep livestock out of treated areas for at least 14 days until poisonous weeds, such as ragwort, have died and become unpalatable.
