Technical Specifications

  • Active Ingredient

    2,4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic acid, choline salt

  • Mode of Action

    2,4-D is a synthetic auxin that is a class of plant hormones that regulates plant growth. It is absorbed through the leaves and is translocated to the region of cells capable of division and growth in plants. This induces a cascade of unregulated growth and eventual death in susceptible plants.

  • Application Rate
    Application Timing
    Postemergence
    Use Rate*
    (pint/acre)
    Use Directions
    Annual and biennial weeds 1 - 2 Apply to annual weeds when small and actively growing
    Perennial weeds up to 4 Apply to perennial weeds from bud to bloom stage

    *The lower use rates will be satisfactory for young, succulent growth of sensitive weed species. For less sensitive species and under conditions where control is more difficult, higher use rates in the rate range are recommended.

  • Application Timing

    Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter

  • Herbicide Group

    2,4-D, the active ingredient in this product, is a Group 4 herbicide (synthetic auxin).

  • Additional Information

    Embed® Extra herbicide is systemic in action and hence results in a thorough kill of the weed.
