Blue Ridge PRISM promotes the safe and proper use of herbicides when they are necessary. Be cautious when using herbicides and use the correct amount, the correct concentration, and at the correct time. Read the herbicide label carefully, follow label instructions, and use personal protective equipment (PPE). The label is the law. Learn more about herbicides from these publications.
