Chemical Action and Usages: Triclopyr is a selective systemic herbicide used to control woody and herbaceous broadleaf weeds and difficult to control weeds such as clover, wild violets, and ground ivy in lawns, grasslands, parklands and along right of ways. It has little impact on cool season turf grass but may damage warm season varieties such as Bermuda grass, Zoysia and St. Augustine. This characteristic makes it usable as a Bermuda grass suppressant (follow label directions) in fescue, bluegrass and ryegrass lawns. Triclopyr controls target weeds by mimicking the plant hormone auxin, causing uncontrolled plant growth making the weed literally growing itself to death.

Cautions/Instructions: Read the label carefully of the brand you have selected and apply the product according to the directions on the label. Readily translocated through roots and foliage. Do not apply to exposed roots of desirable trees and shrubs. Do not apply in windy conditions as damage to desirable plants may occur. This chemical may damage warm season grasses such as zoysia and Bermuda.

Toxicity: May cause skin and eye irritation in humans. Slightly toxic to birds, fish and aquatic invertebrate. Keep out of lakes and streams.
