For woody weed control, Hatchet Herbicide is recommended to be applied via foliar spray. With foliar spraying, the herbicide is diluted with water at a specific rate and sprayed over the foliage to point of run-off (until every leaf is wetted, but not dripping). This method is most suited to shrubs and dense vines less than 6m tall. Advantages include quickness and economy. Disadvantages include the potential for spray drift and off-target damage.
Foliar spraying can be done in a number of ways, including:
- Blanket spraying using a boom spray from a tractor.
- A hose and handgun spraying solution from a herbicide tank.
- A backpack spray unit.
- With splatter guns (larger droplets at higher concentrations) for regrowth.
