Imox Herbicide – 12.1% Imazamox – 1 Quart (Beyond, Raptor, Clearcast Alternative)
Imox Herbicide is labeled for the control of vegetation in and around aquatic and non-cropland sites including areas that may be grazed or cut for hay, (not safe on grass hay). Imox controls grass, labeled broadleaf weeds, and has a limited residual effect as well.
Imox is an excellent choice for the serious Wildlife Food Plot grower who is looking for a single application for weed control. It is safe on Alfalfa, Clover, and usually on Chickory. For use in chicory, apply early post-emergence when weeds are actively growing and when chicory has at least 2, and no more than 4, fully expanded true leaves present. DO NOT apply to chicory subjected to stress conditions, such as hail damage, flooding, drought, injury from other herbicides, or widely fluctuating temperatures, or crop injury may result. Addition of nitrogen fertilizer (Nitro-Surf) may improve weed control but also increases the likelihood of injury to chicory. For more detailed information on what Imazamox will control, reference the Raptor label. Also, please note that the recommended weed size for spraying is 3-4 inches. As the weeds get larger, effectiveness can diminish.
Imox Herbicide is a selective herbicide that will control floating, emerged and shoreline weed species while allowing desirable plants to colonize. Imox is ideal for aquatic areas used for fishing and other recreation activities, while minimal irrigation restrictions allow Imox to be applied in a large variety of aquatic environments, including golf course ponds and irrigation canals and ditches.
How It Works
As Imox is absorbed through the leaves, stems and roots of vegetation, it binds with an enzyme found only in plants, and not found in humans, mammals, birds, fish or insects. Sensitive plants stop growing within 24 hours after treatment, and then slowly break down as food and energy reserves are exhausted. The rate at which plants age varies with plant size and growth habit. Imox has a very favorable environmental profile, and is classified as practically nontoxic to birds, fish, algae and aquatic invertebrates. It’s the only herbicide on the market that has been granted a tolerance exemption by the EPA, which means there are no food residue limits for Imox in fish, shellfish, crustaceans or irrigated crops.
