Willowood Fomesafen 1.88SL is a selective herbicide which may be applied pre-plant, pre-emergence or post-emergence for control or suppression of broadleaf weeds, grasses and sedges in soybeans, according to the company. Willowood Fomesafen 2SL is a selective herbicide which may be applied pre-plant surface, pre-emergence and/or postemergence for control or partial control of broadleaf weeds, grasses and sedges in cotton, dry beans, snap beans and soybeans.
