Skip to For Best Results

Apply to weed free substrate or soil. Irrigate after application.

Cautions and Precautions

Skip to Cautions and Precautions

Apply to dry foliage only. Water in immediately to wash the particles off the plant foliage and to activate the herbicide. Do not apply while plants are producing a new flush of spring growth. Do not apply to plants such as daylily, liriope, yucca, or Hosta with leaves that channel granules to the leaf base. Do not use in greenhouses. Not recommended for bedding plants, liner production beds, groundcovers, flowers, turf, or plants bearing edible fruit.

Residual Activity

Skip to Residual Activity

In container nurseries, six to eight weeks of residual weed control can be expected, depending on the growing substrate, temperature, and irrigation practices.

Volatility and Leaching Potential

Skip to Volatility and Leaching Potential

Low to moderate volatility and low leaching potential. Do not apply in enclosed structures as volatilization is possible.

Symptoms and Mode of Action

Skip to Symptoms and Mode of Action

Oxyfluorfen acts as a contact herbicide, disrupting cell membranes via a mechanism that requires light for activation. Triflurlalin inhibits root development by affecting cell division. Injury symptoms on ornamentals include contact-type burn where granules are trapped on the foliage and girdling at the soil line on some azalea cultivars. Oxyfluorfen mode of action: HRAC Group E; WSSA Group 14. Pendimethalin mode of action: HRAC Group K1; WSSA Group 3.
