FAQ

What is Method 240SL Herbicide?

Method 240SL is a preemergence and postemergence herbicide that controls a wide range of broadleaf weeds, vines, and brush species, including many that are listed as noxious or invasive. It is used in a variety of industrial and non-crop settings such as industrial sites and powerline rights-of-way, roadsides, and railroads, and may also be used in natural areas and lands managed for wildlife.

What is the active ingredient in Method 240SL Herbicide?

Method 240SL is a soluble liquid consisting of potassium salt of aminocyclopyrachlor (ACP).

How does Method 240SL work?

Method 240SL herbicide mimics effects on the plant’s own enzymes and blocks the growth of plants by interfering with the hormonal balance required for normal shoot and root development. It is taken up by both the roots and shoots and, once inside the plant, is translocated to the parts of the plant that are rapidly growing. Typical symptoms include twisting of the leaves and stems, which can become apparent in a matter of hours. This abnormal growth will cause the plant to die over a period of time, with more susceptible plants dying in a matter of days.

Where can Method 240SL be applied?

Method 240SL herbicide can be applied to grazed, non-crop areas including airports, highways and roadsides, railroads, pipeline and utility rights-of-way, industrial areas, fence rows, non-irrigation ditch banks, barrier strips, pumping stations and, restoration areas, natural and conservation management areas.
