Icade is a systemic penetrant selective contact herbicide containing 12 g/l aminopyralid and 120 g/l triclopyr which can be used to control a broad range of perennial, herbaceous and woody weeds in amenity grassland. Icade can be used to spot treat difficult to control rates using a solution of 150-200 ml of Icade to 10 l water.
Icade is perfect for helping to prevent damage to buildings and other structures that can be caused by woody weeds and other invasive weeds. It can be used in a variety of amenity settings including railway embankments, cemeteries, utilities and parkland.
The active substances in Icade are absorbed into the plant through the foliage and translocated to the plant roots meaning that the whole plant, not just the top growth, is effectively controlled. Icade is designed to be spot sprayed onto difficult to control weeds to improve application coverage and control of tough and invasive weeds.
- Effective control of tough and invasive weeds including Japanese knotweed, giant hogweed, buddleia and brambles
- Rainfast in 1 hour
- Controls broadleaved weeds without damaging grasses
- Controls the whole weed from tip to root
Instructions for use
Where to use
Icade can be used on all amenity grassland (except airfields or land that will be grazed by livestock) including areas such as golf roughs, railway embankments and roadside verges:
- Amenity grassland: Areas of semi-natural or planted grassland subject to minimal or non-intensive management
Icade can be used between March and August to treat weeds that are actively growing.
Icade can be applied once per year if applications are made between 1st March and 1st June. Applications after this date are restricted to one application in 2 years (1st June-31st August) or one application in 3 years (1st August-31st August).
How to use
Icade should be applied using either a knapsack sprayer or a suitable lance from a tractor mounted sprayer using a solution of 150-200 ml of Icade per 10 l water.
- Half fill the spray tank with water
- Add the required amount of Icade and agitate to ensure thorough mixing
- Add the remaining water and continue to agitate
- Maintain agitation of the spray solution whilst spraying
When applying Icade, spray target weeds ensuring that they are thoroughly wetted but that the spray solution is not running off the leaf. Following application of Icade avoid cutting the grass for at least 7 days to allow maximum translocation of the active substances to the roots.
- Icade must not be used on airfields, land that will be grazed by livestock
- Icade must not be used where the vegetation will be cut for animal feed, fodder or bedding or for composting or mulching within one year of treatment
- Spot applications should be applied to no more than 20% of the area
