Sendero® is a water-soluble concentrate for the selective control of woody plant species as listed in grazing, game ranches, conservation areas, forestry, industrial areas and non-cropland.

Certain woody plants are essential for desirable wildlife habitat. Wildlife uses these plants for cover, sheltering for the young and nutrition. However, if left unmanaged, species such as sickle bush out-compete desirable shrubs for moisture and sunlight.

The selectivity of Sendero® allows control of the undesirable brush while having little to no effect on the desirable grasses, even with broadcast aerial applications.

Sendero® translocates to the roots and underground bud zone more quickly and thoroughly than other products. This speciality product is your proven wildlife and livestock habitat enhancement partner.

Sendero® 336 SL is an auxin-like growth regulator herbicide that is absorbed by leaves and roots. The active ingredients mimic plant hormones to disrupt plant growth, leading to plant demise.

Sendero® 336 SL applications can be done by aerial broadcast or by foliar spot application and have no restrictions regarding removing or moving livestock or game animals before product application. It also does not harm sensitive ecosystem fauna.

Pasture & land management

Where sickle bush grows densely, valuable water resources are exhausted, nutrients are depleted, the field’s grazing potential is reduced and dense, impenetrable thickets are formed.

Aerial application is the cheapest and most practical way to reduce encroachment drastically.
