What is a ‘selective’ and ‘non-selective’ herbicide?
Selective herbicides are used in lawn care or around nursery or garden plants once weeds emerge. A selective herbicide is used to kill weeds, but does not kill the valuable plant.
Non-selective herbicides are the herbicide of choice for people who want to kill all vegetation in an area. These types of herbicides are generally used in building projects, near fences, driveways and within industrial complexes.
