How Weed Control Works

Taking a Look at the Process

Question: How does weed control work?
 
Answer: Weed control products, also known as herbicides, kill or impact the normal growth of weeds. When it comes to impeding growth, these products block photosynthesis and protein production by destroying the weed’s root system. Herbicides are specially engineered to target different types of weeds in the most effective manner possible. There are both pre-emergent (used prior to weed germination) and post-emergent (used after the weed has already sprouted) varieties of herbicides available, and the type used is usually dependent on the type of growth on the lawn. For the majority of broadleaf weeds, a control product is sprayed on the foliage of the plant for optimum results.
