Q&A Home

Richard from Tonto Basin Arizona writes,

How does Scythe Herbicide compare to Ranger-Pro herbicide?


Scythe Herbicide will only control actively growing emerged green vegetation. It provides burndown of both annual and perennial broadleaf and grass weeds, as well as most mosses and other cryptogams. It is labeled to be used in ornamental palnts in landscape and turf. Additional treatments may be required for new emerging weeds.

Ranger Pro has the same active ingredient as Round Up. It is just as effective and is water soluble liquid with surfactant and no additional surfactant is required. It is then absorbed into the soil and breaks down naturally, and therefore will not spread through the ground and kill neighboring plants.

Depending on what you are treating for will depend on what we would recommend for you. If you are treating general weeds in certain areas, we would recommend using Ranger Pro as a spot treatment. It does have the potential to kill a lot of weeds.
