Visible effects within hours! Scythe Herbicide is a non-selective, post-emergence weed control for grasses and broadleaf weeds. It is formulated to deliver maximum performance and provides fast acting results on a long list of weeds and grasses, as well as most mosses and lichens.

Made of natural fatty acids, Scythe Herbicide works by removing or “burning” the waxy cuticle of green vegetation. Will not move through soil to injure nearby plants. Very concentrated – covers up to 1 acre. Repeat applications may be required on larger weeds.

Available size: 2.5 Gallon


Mix a 3-5% solution for control of annual weeds, mosses and cryptogams. Use the lower rate in the rate range for young, succulent and actively growing weeds and the higher rate for weeds greater than six inches in height or in the flowering stage. Use higher rate for control of mosses, lichens and other cryptogams on structures and surfaces.

Mix a 5-7% solution for burndown of perennial herbaceous plants, weeds in a later stage of growth and control of sucker growth. Use the highest rate for perennial weeds at or beyond the flower stage or when the plants have “hardened.”

Use a 7-10% solution when maximum vegetative burndown, edging or foliar trimming is desired.

Repeat application as required to maintain desirable level of weed control and to control plants emerging from seed and underground parts.
