What is Echelon 4SC Herbicide


This patented formulation is both root and shoot absorbed, Echelon ® 4SC herbicide controls weeds from the foliage down and from the root up. In independent tests and case studies, Echelon ® 4SC herbicide has demonstrated proven efficacy and long-lasting residual on preemergent crabgrass. Echelon ® 4SC herbicide is truly unique in the way it reduces follow-up applications by controlling other weeds, including preemergent and postemergent sedges and a variety of broadleaf weeds. By doing so much more in a single treatment, Echelon ® 4SC herbicide helps reduce the need for subsequent applications, saving you time and money


Echelon ® 4SC herbicide is available as a flowable formulation (suspension concentrate) and Echelon ® herbicide can be formulated on fertilizer for a combination product. The mode of action involves uptake by both weed roots and shoots of existing weeds and prevention of growth by newly emerged weed seedlings
