GENERAL INFORMATION: This product is recommended for selective, postemergence control of broadleaf weeds in non-crop land areas including equipment pathways, industrial manufacturing and storage sites and rights-of-way such as along roadsides, electrical lines and railroads. Use on these sites may include application to grazed areas.
GENERAL USE PRECAUTIONS: Do not contaminate irrigation ditches or water used for irrigation or domestic purposes.
Do not use in greenhouses.
In Florida: This product can only be used for control of kudzu in utility rights-of-way, roadsides, fence lines, and other non-crop areas in the following counties: Baker, Bay, Bradford, Calhoun, Columbia, Escambia, Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf, Hamilton, Holmes, Jackson, Jefferson, Lafayette, Leon, Liberty, Madison, Okaloosa, Santa Rosa, Suwannee, Taylor, Union, Wakulla, Walton, and Washington.
Avoid Injury to Non-target Plants: This product can affect susceptible broadleaf plants directly through foliar contact and indirectly by root uptake from soil in treated areas. Do not allow spray drift to come in contact with vegetables, flowers, tomatoes, potatoes, beans, lentils, peas, alfalfa, sunflowers, soybeans, safflower, or other desirable broadleaf crops or ornamental plants.
Chemigation: Do not apply this product through any type of irrigation system.
Grazing: There are no restrictions on grazing following application of this product at labeled rates.
Do not transfer livestock from treated grazing areas to sensitive broadleaf crop areas without first allowing 7 days of grazing on an untreated pasture. Otherwise, urine may contain enough clopyralid to cause injury to sensitive broadleaf plants.
Residues in Plants or Manure: Do not use plant residues, including hay or straw from treated areas, or manure from animals that have grazed or consumed forage from treated areas for composting or mulching where susceptible plants may be grown the following season. Do not spread manure from animals that have grazed or consumed forage or hay from treated areas on land used for growing susceptible broadleaf corps. To promote herbicidal decomposition, plant residues should be evenly incorporated or burned.
Breakdown of clopyralid in crop residues or manure is more rapid under warm, moist soil conditions and may be enhanced by supplemental irrigation.

QDo you think Kudzu Killer will work on poison ivy?
AUnfortunately, Kudzu Killer is not labeled for Poison Ivy, only Kudzu so we cannot say for certain whether it will work or not since it hasn't been tested b y the manufacturer. However, we do have Bonide Poison Ivy and Brush Killer that works fantastic on Poinson Ivy.
