Prowl H2O delivers excellent residual control of annual grasses and select broadleaf weeds, now in a unique water-based formulation.

  • Prowl H2O offers the same great weed control as original Prowl, but now with less equipment staining and reduced odour.
  • The active ingredient is microencapsulated and suspended in a water-based formulation.
  • Flexible tank-mix options and application timings make it a good fit for many weed control programs for conventional and glyphosate-tolerant corn and soybeans.

How it Works

  • Prowl H2O stops weeds as they are trying to emerge in your field.
  • It can be sprayed on emerged corn without worry about crop injury as it is not absorbed by any green tissue.
  • Will not control weeds that have already emerged but will keep weeds from coming back into a clean field.
  • Prowl H2O is used in a pre-plant application prior to planting soybeans, for early season residual control of key grass and broadleaf weeds.

Application Tips

For field corn

Uniformly apply with properly calibrated ground equipment using a minimum of 200 L water/ha.
Use a properly calibrated low-pressure (138 kPa to 276 kPa) sprayer equipped with 80o or 110o flat fan nozzles to achieve uniform spray distribution and minimize drift. Keep the by-pass line on or near the bottom of the tank to minimize foaming. Nozzle screens must be no finer than 50 mesh.

For soybeans

Uniformly apply with properly calibrated ground equipment.  The tank mix should be applied prior to planting soybeans in no-till or reduced tillage situations.  Soybeans should be planted at least 5 cm deep.  Adequate soil moisture is required for optimum activity.

For dry bulb onions

Apply as a foliar application at the 2-6 true-leaf stage.  Apply in 250 L water/ha by ground application only. Maximum of 2 applications per year.

When to Apply

For Corn

  • Prowl H2O has an exceptionally wide window of application for maximum flexibility.
  • Can be applied with various tank-mix partners anytime after corn is planted up to the 4-leaf stage for outstanding grass control with excellent crop safety.
  • Can be applied in a liquid-fertilizer carrier as a replacement for water for pre-emergence applications.
  • Plant corn AT LEAST 4 cm deep to ensure good seed coverage.

Broadleaf weeds Pre-emergence
Grassy weeds Pre-emergence

For Soybeans

  • Apply as an early pre-plant surface application.

For Dry Bulb Onions

  • Prowl H2O herbicide can be applied at the loop and 2 true leaf stage of crop development.
  • Uniformly apply the recommended rate of Prowl H2O herbicide in 100 L/acre or more of water by ground equipment.
  • Prowl H2O herbicide treatments will NOT control emerged weeds.
  • Make sure to control existing weeds before applying Prowl H2O herbicide.
  • Prowl H2O herbicide treatments are most effective in controlling weeds when adequate rainfall or overhead irrigation is received within 7 days after application.

How Much to Apply

  • Whether on its own or as a Prowl H2O tank-mix program, Prowl H2O is easy to apply.
  • Use at a rate of 10 gallons of spray solution per acre when applying to corn fields.

Mixing Instructions

  1. Fill the tank one-half to three-quarters full with clean water and agitate.
  2. Add tank-mix ingredients according to instructions listed below.
  3. After complete mixing, add PROWL H2O to the tank.
  4. When adding Accent plus BANVEL II, ensure that the tank-mix is well mixed and in suspension, then add a recommended non-ionic surfactant such as Citowett Plus, Agral or Ag-Surf to the tank-mix.
  5. Fill the remainder of the tank with water while agitating.
  6. Maintain continuous agitation while adding herbicides and until spraying is complete. If spray mixture is allowed to settle for any period of time, thorough agitation is essential to re-suspend the mixture before spraying is resumed.

Note: Do not apply PROWL H2O herbicide post-emergence in liquid fertilizers. Apply post-emergence applications in water only.

Tank-mix ingredients are to be added in the following order:

  • Wettable Powder, Dry Flowable or Water Dispersible Granule Formulations: When using water as a carrier, add the dry material to the partially filled tank while agitating. If applying with liquid fertilizer, make a slurry of the wettable powder in water (1 part WP to 2 parts water), before adding liquid fertilizer in spray tank. Slowly add the slurry into the partially filled tank while agitating.
  • Liquid formulations: Add the liquid to the partially filled tank while agitating.
  • Emulsifiable Concentrate (EC) formulations: Add the EC to the partially filled tank while agitating.
  • Solution formulations: Add the solution to the partially filled tank while agitating.
  • After complete mixing, add PROWL H2O herbicide to the partially filled tank while agitating.
