This listing of products is an attempt to aid the homeowner in selecting an appropriate turf
herbicide. The list was created from a survey of products found on shelves of stores featuring
home and garden products in six North Carolina counties. On product labels, the herbicide will
be listed as a particular form of the chemical. For example, 2,4-D may be indicated as the
dimethylamine salt of 2,4,-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid.

Use of brand names in this publication does not imply endorsement of the products named or
criticism of similar ones not mentioned. Before selecting a product, check on the safety to the
turfgrass and whether or not it will control the weeds present in the turf.
