Active ingredient Trifluralin Alpha, Alpha, 
Alpha-Trifluoro-2,6-Dinitro-N,N-DIPROPYL-P-Toluidine    (C13H16F3N3O4)

Called Scott's and the gals I talked with muddled through the label and were 
very confused as I am also.

Can't be used after transplant, can be used up to 10 weeks prior to planting 
up to 1 day prior to transplanting.  So what's the difference between 1 day 
prior to transplant and after transplant?  It isn't going to dissipate in 24 

My son used this product last year 2 or 3 times in his vegetable garden after 
the plants were established.  He grows squash, beans, chiles, tomatoes, etc.  
He had a huge harvest. 

 Now what is the deal on this stuff?  

What is it really and will it harm my plants?

It doesn't hurt bees.
