Scythe Herbicide

Scythe quickly penetrates green plant tissue, disrupting the makeup of the targeted plants’ cells. The disrupted tissue withers and dies, starting within minutes of treatment.  This fatty acid based, non-selective contact herbicide is great for killing grass and weeds in a hurry.  Use 4 to 13 ounces per gallon of water; each gallon of solution covers up to 500 square feet.  Use on grasses, broadleaf weeds, annual, biannual, and perennial weeds under 6″ height.  Tip: For quicker and better kill, combine Scythe with Rain Proof Roundup or Roundup Pro Dry.  Scythe is an important add-on tool for lawn care.
