What is Method 240SL?
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.

What are the active ingredients in Method 240SL herbicide?
Method 240SL is a soluble liquid consisting of potassium salt of aminocyclopyrachlor and potassium salt of 6-amino-5-chloro-2-cyclopropyl-4-pyrimidinecarboxylic acid.
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.
