With the introduction of a new herbicide treatment for control of broadleaf weeds and invasive plants in rangeland and pasture areas of Canada by Dow Chemical Company (Restore II) we put together a plan to compare the effectiveness and the cost of the new product compared to commonly used products MCPB/MCPA (Tropotox) and MCPA (Amine 600).

We were aware that the Restore product claimed to control or suppress a wide range of common weeds (over 70 common weeds). We were aware that the product would remove legumes and re-establishment may be affected for up to five years. Grass species can be seeded up to 10 months following application.
