Milestone Specialty Herbicide kills weeds in rangelands, native grass areas, pastures, and meadows. Milestone will control many different types of weeds including: Canada thistle, musk thistle, goatheads (immature), yellow mustard, alfalfa, knapweed, and many more invasive and noxious weeds. Native areas are very important to the ecosystem and this is one reason why Organo-Lawn is committed to using only the most environmentally friendly and effective weed control products available.
Organo-Lawn is thrilled to offer the product Milestone as a weed control option for pasture land areas. Milestone is one of the best weed controls for controlling difficult weeds and it is also a registered EPA's Reduced Risk pesticide. Milestone weed killer 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 high weed control rates around, 80-95% control, in the spring when weeds are young and actively growing. During the summer months when temperatures are hot and the land is drought stressed we tend to see weed control rates around 60-85%. Milestone is excellent at controlling Canada thistle and we tend to see high control rates on thistles any time of the year.
Musk and Canada thistle is the most problematic weed that we tend to see in native grass areas . We achieve exceptional weed control rates on Canada thistle when the product is applied in early June and again in early September. Typical weed control rates for Canada thistle and musk thistle are between 90-95% per application and it will take 2-3 weed control applications to get a major thistle problem under control. We have experienced very good weed control rates when targeting other weeds using milestone weed control including knapweed, goatheads, mustard, and kochia.
Bindweed: If you have a combination of bindweed and other weeds we can combine a treatment of Milestone weed killer with Drive XLR8 weed control. This weed control combination will get get good control on both the native area weeds and the bindweed.
Applications in pastures, require special products that are specifically designed to protect the wildlife and kill the weeds that grow in these more natural environments.

No, milestone is not an organic weed control; however, it is on the EPA's reduced risk list. This means that it is a weed killer that poses less risk to human health and the environment than existing conventional alternatives. The goal of the EPA's reduced risk program is to bring to market viable alternatives to riskier conventional pesticides such as neurotoxins, carcinogens, reproductive and developmental toxicants, and groundwater contaminants.
