Mode of Action
Glyphosate (N-(phosphonomethyl) glycine) inhibits plant enzymes involved in the synthesis of the aromatic amino acids: tyrosine, tryptophan, and phenylalanine and is absorbed through foliage, and minimally through roots, and translocated to growing points.
Apply Catapult® 480SL as post emergence herbicide to vigorously growing weeds directly onto the foliage. For best results, spray coverage should be uniform and complete.
Do not spray weed foliage to the point of run-off.
DO NOT treat weeds that are under poor growing conditions such as in drought stress, disease or insect damage as reduced weed control may result.
Poor results may occur if weeds are treated whilst heavily covered with dust or have been mowed, grazed or cut and have not been allowed to re-grow to the recommended stage for treatment. Rain or irrigation occurring within 6 hours after application may reduce effectiveness.
