Trifluralin is a root inhibitor that is incorporated into (binds with)
soil.  I imagine binding turns it into a slow release treatment that
doesn't stand much chance of damaging established roots but is very
damaging for roots of newly sprouting plants. >>

Thank you so much for the explanation.  Too bad Scott's CSR's don't have a 
clue.  LOL
