Milestone Specialty Herbicide kills weeds in rangeland, native, pasture, and meadow like areas. Milestone will control many different types of weeds including: Canada thistle, musk thistle, goatheads, yellow mustard, alfalfa, knapweed, kochia, myrtle spurge, knapweed, and many more invasive weeds. Native areas are very important to the ecosystem and this is one reason why Organo-Lawn is committed to using the most environmentally friendly and effective weed control products available.
Organo-Lawn is thrilled to have the product Milestone as our weed control for native areas. Milestone is one of the best weed controls for thistle, goatheads, mustard and knapweed and it is also a registered EPA's Reduced Risk pesticide. Milestone weed control is so low toxic it is practically non-toxic to humans, fish, honeybees, invertebrates, amphibians, and birds. Milestone weed control is broken down by soil microbial activity very quickly and it does not leach through soils. Milestone does not damage monocots so grasses will not be negatively affected by the weed control application. Native grasses typically do not need supplemental fertilization so when we apply this product to native areas we do not apply it with any fertilizer. Typical weed control rates may vary depending on the species of weed and time of year, but we tend to see weed control rates between 80-95% especially on thistle.
Canada and musk thistle treatments are the most common use for milestone weed control. We achieve exceptional control when the product is applied in early June and again in early September. Typical control rates for Canada and musk thistle are between 90-95% per application and it will take 2-3 applications to get a major thistle problem under control. We have experienced very good weed control when targeting other weeds using milestone weed control including knapweed, goatheads, mustards, and kochia.
NOTE: If you have a combination of bindweed and other weeds we can do a treatment of Milestone weed control and Drive XLR8 weed control to get good control on both the native area weeds and the bindweed.
