SHARPSHOOTER is a non-selective, non-residual herbicide containing 356 g/L glyphosate as isopropylamine salt, formulated as a water soluble liquid. It is used for the control of most herbaceous weeds in agricultural and industrial sites. The product is absorbed through the foliage and translocated throughout the plant down to the root system. Visible symptoms such as gradual wilting and yellowing are usually obvious within 2 to 4 days of application to annual weeds, but may not be apparent for 7 to 10 days on perennial weeds.
Results are best when weeds are actively growing. If weeds have been mowed, allow to return to recommended growth stage. Delay application until vegetation has emerged to the stage described for the control of such vegetation under the ANNUAL and PERENNIAL WEED CONTROL charts of this booklet to provide adequate leaf surface to receive the spray. Unemerged plants arising from underground rhizomes or root stocks of perennials will not be affected by the spray and will continue to grow. For this reason best control of most perennial weeds is obtained when the treatment is made at the late growth stages approaching maturity.
