Bareground Non-Selective Herbicides
Bareground Non-Selective Herbicides (sometimes called soil sterilants) kill all vegetation. Many provide residual control and prevent it from growing back, usually for a period of six months or more. Many bareground herbicides can be used at lower concentrations and can act as selective herbicides killing certain weeds and not others. At higher concentrations, bareground herbicides kill all vegetation. Bareground Herbicides can have different modes of action some act as contact herbicides others are soil active some are both.
Bareground herbicides are often used in industrial and utility sites, along fence lines, gravel drives and parking lots, right-of-ways, under asphalt and concrete paving, and anywhere else it is desirable to prevent vegetation from growing.
