When a pesticide is eligible for reregistration, EPA announces this and explains why in a Reregistration Eligibility Decision (RED) document. The fact sheet summarizes the information in the RED for tebuthiuron. Tebuthiuron is a relatively nonselective, soil activated herbicide that acts by inhibiting photosynthesis. It is used to control broadleaf and woody weeds, grasses and brush on feed crop sites (pasture and rangeland) and a variety of non-food crop sites including airports/landing fields, outdoor industrial areas, non-agricultural rights-of-way, fencerows, hedgerows, uncultivated areas/soils, and under paved roads and sidewalks in areas where no future landscaping is planned. Primary uses include rangeland and near railroads and other industrial facilities.
