Jocelyn H. Chilvers added this to Weed War: When and How to Use Chemical Herbicides
First, let's get familiar with the terminology. Herbicides are used as pre-emergents, by inhibiting plant seeds from germinating, or as postemergents, meaning they work on actively growing plants. Some are nonselective and affect any plants they contact, while others are selective and will control only specific plants. Contact herbicides affect only the plant tissue on which they are applied, while systemic herbicides are absorbed into the entire plant and root system. Chemical controls may be natural or synthetic. Ideally, all herbicides should be applied by a licensed pesticide applicator.
