Biological Information and Remarks
A highly selective, postemergence grass killer. It will
kill both annual and perennial grasses with little or
no injury to broadleaf plants. Nonionic surfactant or
crop oil concentrate is recommended to be used with
the water carrier. Fluazifop is quickly absorbed
through the leaf surface, and rain falling within 1
hour after application reduces effectiveness only
slightly. All broadleaf crops tested to date are
tolerant. Fluazifop is rapidly degraded in moist soil,
with a half-life of less than a week. The degree of
residual activity depends on soil characteristics and
rainfall. Susceptible rotational crops can be planted
60 days after treatment.
A late summer to fall foliage-applied herbicide for
control of woody plants. Add a nonionic surfactant
to the spray mixture. It is somewhat corrosive to
brass or copper sprayer parts. Compound is ab-
sorbed by foliage, stems, and buds of deciduous
plants; with little or no apparent effect until the
following spring, when bud development is either
prevented or severely limited to produce miniature,
spindly leaves. Some plants, such as bindweed and
pines, may show response soon after treatment.
Susceptible woody plants fail to refoliate, and subse-
quently die. Fosamine is rapidly decomposed by soil
microorganisms and has a half-life in soil of about 1
