EPA Registers Milestone VM Herbicide
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has accepted a Section 3 federal registration for Milestone VM herbicide, a product developed and manufactured by Dow AgroSciences LLC, for control of problem weeds including noxious and invasive species that often plague right-of-way management areas nationwide.
Milestone VM introduces a new molecule—aminopyralid, a member of the pyridine chemical class—that offers postemergence control and season-long residual activity. It also has been accepted in 41 states so far with more expected.
Milestone VM is registered under the EPA’s Reduced Risk Pesticide Initiative, and offers a low-use rate. It contains two pounds of active ingredient per gallon; most labeled weeds can be controlled at a labeled rate of 3 to 7 ounces per acre. It can be sprayed up to the water’s edge and does not require a special license for purchase or application.
