This is a non-selective water soluble herbicide for application as a foliar spray for the control of emerged annual and perennial grass and broadleaf weeds. Since the product will injure or kill all green vegetation it should be directed only at targeted vegetation. Based upon a battery of acute toxicity studies, technical glufosinate ammonium is classified as a toxicity Category II. The chemical is neither teratogenic nor carcinogenic. Glufosinate ammonium is practically nontoxic to birds and aquatic species. Laboratory studies indicate the chemical is mobile and persistent.
