Foliar Application

Get a FREE QuoteFoliar spraying is a popular application method of treating brush up to 15 feet tall. Foliar application of herbicides entails spraying the leaves of target plants during the growing season with a low concentration of herbicide in a water carrier. The spray can be applied with a hand-powered, backpack sprayer or larger, motorized sprayers. Research shows that certain herbicides applied to the foliage throughout the growing season consistently provide effective control, while others when applied early in the season, provide only acceptable control. Foliar treatments are least effective during periods of drought stress.  Because the herbicide can take many months to travel from the leaves to the roots, it is important to wait at least a year before cutting the stems of woody vegetation treated with foliar spray.
