What is Esplanade 200 SC?
Esplanade® 200 SC is a preemergence herbicide that offers long-lasting control of over 75 species of annual grasses, broadleaves, with a use rate significantly lower than competitive standards. Plus, with up to eight months of residual control, Esplanade 200 SC also reduces time and labor costs.
How does Esplanade 200 SC work?
Esplanade 200 SC herbicide controls weeds by reducing the emergence of seedlings through inhibition of cellulose biosynthesis (CB Inhibitor). Necrosis or yellowing may also be observed if the herbicide is applied to herbaceous tissue such as leaves and green stems of susceptible plants.
Where can Esplanade 200 SC be applied?
Esplanade 200 SC herbicide is used to control many annual grasses and broadleaf weeds in railroads, roadsides, hardscapes, industrial areas, utilities, airports, government and military installations, managed areas (petroleum tank farms, pumping stations, storage areas, rail and utility rights-of-way, utility substations, lumberyards, around farm buildings, non-irrigation ditch banks, fence rows, manufacturing sites, office buildings, educational facilities, parking lots, and under asphalt or concrete as part of site preparation).
Esplanade 200 SC may be used to release or re-establish desirable perennial grasses, forbs, shrubs and trees in non-crop areas such as parks and open space, wildlife management areas, recreational areas, fire rehabilitation areas, prairies and fire breaks.
How is Esplanade 200 SC helping in the restoration of rangeland and natural areas?
Esplanade 200 SC herbicide helps prevent the germination of invasive annual grasses such as cheatgrass for multiple years with one application. It helps deplete the invasive annual grass seed bank which results in better ecosystem diversity and improved wildlife habitat quantity and quality.
Does Esplanade 200 SC control kochia?
Yes. Applying Esplanade 200 SC herbicide and Method 240SL herbicide before kochia emerges delivers the most effective control especially in areas of the western US.
What are the active ingredients in Esplanade 200 SC?
Esplanade 200 SC herbicide contains the active ingredient indaziflam, which is one of the most effective and long-lasting preemergence solutions available.
How is Esplanade 200 SC different than other preemergence herbicides?
Esplanade 200 SC herbicide has a unique mode of action that is very effective against weed species that have developed resistance to other commonly-used herbicides. Additionally, the length of control provided by Esplanade 200 SC is excellent, lasting up to eight months even under difficult conditions. This reduces the number of applications needed in a season and give applicators the flexibility they need - saving time and money. These use rates are much lower than other preemergence herbicides which are applied at several pounds of product per acre.
When do I apply Esplanade 200 SC herbicide?
Apply in the spring prior to weed seed germination for control of spring and summer weeds and apply in the fall for control of winter weeds. For late fall applications, apply Esplanade 200 SC prior to when the ground freezes. Esplanade 200 SC does not generally control weeds that have emerged.
What are the use rates for Esplanade 200 SC?
The desired rate of Esplanade 200 SC herbicide depends on the residual weed activity required and restrictions on the maximum amount of Esplanade 200 SC per season. Esplanade 200 SC may be applied at 3.5-7 fl. oz. per acre. Do not exceed 7 fl. oz. of Esplanade 200 SC for a single application. Applications of Esplanade 200 SC must not exceed the maximum label rate (10 fl. oz. per acre) in a 12-month period after the previous application. Factors including soil type, rainfall, and the amount of vegetation at the time of treatment may affect weed control. Lower rates of Esplanade 200 SC may be effective for sandy soils, whereas organic soils may require higher rates.
Does Esplanade 200 SC need to be watered in to activate it?
Yes. For maximum weed control, Esplanade 200 SC herbicide needs to reach the soil surface and be activated by rainfall or adequate soil moisture. For maximum activity against germinating weeds, Esplanade 200 SC requires rainfall (minimum 0.25 inches) within several weeks after application to activate the herbicide. If the herbicide is not activated by rainfall prior to weed germination, control may be reduced.
Does Esplanade 200 SC have postemergence activity?
Esplanade 200 SC herbicide has minimal postemergence activity and generally does not control weeds that have emerged. A postemergence herbicide such as Finale® herbicide may be mixed with Esplanade 200 SC to control existing weeds. Esplanade 200 SC also does not control tubers, rhizomes, and woody vegetation.
Is Esplanade 200 SC herbicide safe to use around crops and non-target plants?
Take precautions to avoid spray drift due to wind, temperature inversion, and droplet size as listed on the label. Avoid run-off due to over-saturated or powdery, dry, light or sandy soil or for other reasons listed on the label. Injury to crops or desirable vegetation may result if treated soil is washed, blown or moved into these areas.
Is there a risk of Esplanade 200 SC getting into surface water?
When used according to label instructions, Esplanade 200 SC herbicide has no unreasonable effects to the environment. Do not apply directly to water or to soil where standing water is present except as specified on this label.
