Dead Zone

Nonselective, Glyphosate Weed Killer 2803

Product Description

DEAD ZONE is a nonselective herbicide that is diluted and applied to the foliage of actively growing weeds as a spot or broadcast application. It is absorbed by the leaves and moves throughout the stem and roots to control the entire plant. Visible symptoms may require a week or more to appear, with burndown usually occurring in 2 to 4 weeks. Symptoms are a gradual wilting and yellowing of the sprayed plant followed by deterioration of both shoots and roots. This product has no herbicidal activity in the soil and will not wash or leach to affect nearby vegetation. DEAD ZONE controls many weeds around buildings, vacant lots, storage and recreational areas, gravel or ground bark mulch, shade trees, ornamentals and shrubs, along fences, sidewalks, driveways and patios; and prior to planting turf grasses or shrubs listed on the label. When used as a spot treatment in lawns, all vegetation contacted will be damaged.

Directions for Use

This product can injure or destroy all vegetation contacted. Avoid spray drift contact with desirable lawn grasses, flowers, vegetables, shrubs or trees. Do not contact green bark of trees or shrubs. If desirable vegetation is contacted, wash immediately with water.

HAND-HELD SPRAYERS: Add 3 to 6 fluid ounces of this product to 1 gallon of clean water (1 gallon of solution will treat approximately 300 square feet). Use the higher recommended rate for control of listed perennials and brush. Use pump-up-type or hand-trigger-type sprayers. USE OF HOSE-END SPRAYERS OR SPRINKLER-TYPE DEVICES MAY RESULT IN POOR AND/OR ERRATIC RESULTS.

WHEN TO APPLY: Apply to vigorously growing plants. Apply to annual weeds at any time after emergence. For best results apply to perennial weeds after seedheads, flowers, or berries appear. On woody brush or trees, apply after leaves have fully expanded. Applications made at less than the recommended stage of growth may result in reduced control. After mowing, clipping or tilling, allow weeds to regrow to the recommended growth stage before spraying this product. Rainfall or  watering within 6 hours after application can wash the product off plant  foliage which may require retreatment. Delay mowing, clipping, tilling, planting or sodding of treated areas for at least 7 days after application. This allows time for this product to move within the plant for most effective results. SINCE THIS PRODUCT DOES NOT WORK IN SOIL, RETREATMENTS WILL BE NECESSARY TO CONTROL NEW WEEDS EMERGING FROM SEED.

One application will control most weeds listed. Symptoms on certain tough perennial weeds and woody brush and tree species may be slow to develop. If control is not achieved within 4 weeks, allow time for the sprayed weeds to regrow and make a repeat application. In some cases, control of  woody brush and trees treated in the fall may not be fully apparent until the following season.
