Scythe Herbicide is a contact non-selective, broad spectrum, foliar-applied herbicide. This product will only control actively growing emerged green vegetation. It provides burndown of both annual and perennial broadleaf and grass weeds, as well as most mosses and other cryptogams.
The degree of burndown and the longevity of control is less when the plants are inactive, mature, or biennial/perennial types. This product is not translocated. It will burn only those plant parts that are coated with spray solution. This product is a non-volatile, emulsifiable concentrate. It can be applied through most standard or field type sprayers after dilution and mixing with water in accordance with label instructions. For best results, uniform and complete coverage of target plants is required. Visible effects on most weeds occur within hours. This product does not damage mature, non-green, woody parts of plants.
Cool weather following treatment slows the activity of this product and delays or reduces visual effects. This product provides no residual weed control. Repeat treatments will be necessary for new plants emerging from seed or regrowth of treated vegetation.
