APPLICATION TO MAINTAIN BARE GROUND NON CROP AREAS
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
It is a violation of Federal Law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.
READ ENTIRE LABEL. USE STRICTLY IN ACCORDANCE WITH PRECAUTIONARY STATEMENTS AND
DIRECTIONS, AND WITH APPLICABLE STATE AND FEDERAL REGULATIONS.
GENERAL INFORMATION: Payload is a selective herbicide to maintain bare ground non-crop areas when
used in accordance with this label. Payload is effective as a preemergence and/or postemergence herbicide
for control of selected grass and broadleaf weeds.
Payload controls weeds by inhibiting protoporphyrinogen oxidase, an essential enzyme required by plants for
chlorophyll biosynthesis. Seedling weeds are controlled preemergence when exposed to sunlight following
contact with the soil applied herbicide. Preemergence weed control with Payload is most effective when
applied to clean, weed free soil surfaces. Disturbing soil surfaces may reduce herbicide efficacy. Emerged
weeds are controlled postemergence with Payload by inhibiting the same enzyme in plants with
preemergence applications. The most effective postemergence weed control with Payload occurs when
applied in combination with a surfactant to weeds less than 2 inches in height.
