Note: Triclopyr and clopyralid are hormone sprays but are not included in the regulations as they came into use after the regulations were gazetted. Duty of care applies to all products.

Bromoxynil, which is one of the actives in Jaguar, is an ester but is not a scheduled herbicide. Bromoxynil is not a phenoxy herbicide, therefore has a different mode of action. Therefore, there are no restrictions on Bromoxynil or products that contain bromoxynil such as Jaguar.
