Escort XP Herbicide
When weeds emerge, a potent herbicide is required to remove them from the area. Escort XP is a postemergent herbicide for broadleaf weed control and eliminates the unwanted plants. It requires very low use rates and is known to have low toxicity to wildlife. When used as directed, Escort XP is the ideal solution for weed control in forestry, noncrop and other labeled sites.
How Escort XP Works
Escort XP comes in a water-dispersible granulation and contains metsulfuron-methyl as the active ingredient. It's a selective herbicide, so it can be applied in areas to target problem weeds without negatively affecting the surrounding grasses. The active ingredient inhibits amino acid synthesis, which results in halted weed growth and death. Though it's been shown to have pre-emergent activity, it's best to apply Escort XP to postemergent weeds. Applying it to perennial weeds during the budding stage will achieve the best results.
Where to Use Escort XP
Escort XP has low toxicity to wildlife, so it's common to see turf management professionals applying it to forestry sites. It eliminates the weeds and woody brush that block wildlife openings. Use this effective herbicide on pastures and rangelands to knock down invasive weeds. When used as directed, it can be applied to grazed areas without adverse effects on the livestock. Apply Escort XP to control weeds on conifer and hardwood plantations, as well as vegetation management sites. Other areas include noncrop sites such as rights-of-way, utility areas, roadsides and more.
Use Escort XP herbicide to target, kill and control annual and perennial weeds, including hard-to-control woody plants. It's highly effective against annual sowthistle, chicory and dandelion, as well as some vines like kudzu. Use it to kill blackberry, knapweed, thistles and wild parsnip, including curly dock and dewberry. Escort XP is also known for its effectiveness against certain brush species such as ash, black locust, elm, eastern red cedar, willow and other labeled weeds and brush.
