Active Ingredients: Aminopyralid @ 10g/L & Fluroxypyr @ 140g/L
Hotshot Herbicide is used for the control of various pasture weeds, broadleaf weeds, climbing buckwheat, lantana & other woody weeds in various situations including pastures, winter cereals, non-crop areas, forests and rights of way.
Hotshot contains fluroxypyr and aminopyralid. Aminopyralid is a pyridine carboxylic used as a selective, post-emergent herbicide to control key broadleaf weeds. It is a new generation active ingredient that is effective at very low rates when compared with other herbicides.
Winter cereals: Climbing buckwheat, fleabane and other broadleaf weeds.
Pastures: lantana, fireweed and certain other weeds.
Hotshot Herbicide for Lantana Control:
Lantana can be treated using Hotshot Herbicide using a foliar spray application at a rate of 500 to 700 mL/100 L of water. This method can be used in any Australian state or territory.
The best time to treat for control of lantana is from December through to April, although if conditions allow treatment can be as early as October or as late as July. Lantana is a heavily branched shrub that can grow as compact clumps, dense thickets and as a scrambling and climbing vine. The stems are square with small, recurved prickles along the edges. The leaves are bright green above, paler beneath, about 6 cm long, with rounded, toothed edges. Leaves grow opposite one another along the stem. Flowers appear most of the year in clustered compact heads about 2.5 cm in diameter. Flower colours vary from pale cream to yellow, white, pink, orange, red, lilac and purple. Many lantana forms are poisonous to livestock. The toxic components in lantana include the triterpene acids, lantadene A (rehmannic acid), lantadene B and their reduced forms. Most cases of lantana poisoning occur in animals newly introduced into areas where toxic lantana grows. Animals bred on such country rarely show signs of poisoning.
