1. Treating isolated patches and limited infestations under eucalypt trees
Use Starane Advanced at a rate of 360 mL/100 L of water + surfactant to control mother-of-millions present under eucalypt trees. Starane Advanced has no soil residue and will not affect the eucalypt trees.
2. Treating extensive infestations on arable land
Use Grazon Extra at a rate of 500 mL/100 L of water + surfactant as a foliar spray to control mother-of-millions in open areas. Grazon Extra will suppress new seedlings. Encourage pasture growth to help with competition.
3. Treating extensive infestations on hill country
Containment of mother-of-millions to a particular site is the first strategy. The next step is to reduce the infestation by using foliar application on smaller patches first, then moving on to larger patches. It may be beneficial to fence off areas so cattle do not graze these areas while flowering (winter months).
