Handling, Precautions & Care;
The active ingredient, picloram, is ground residual and can travel through soil, particularly when large numbers of weeds are treated. The mode of action of the pyridine group of herbicides is to disrupt cell growth; some weeds may be resistant to these chemicals. You are advised not to use next to desirable or known sensitive native plants or in areas where their roots might extend into. Do not use if rain is expected with 2 hours. The active ingredient from the gel can leach onto wanted plants. Effectiveness may also be reduced.
Do not apply on or around food or animal feed crops or areas to be grazed by animals.
In the tightly closed original container in a cool dark place, away from children & pets, foodstuffs, seeds, fertilisers & pesticides. Kept as recommended the gel will show no appreciable deterioration for at least two years from the Date of Manufacture (DOM).
