How Snapshot works

Snapshot® specialty herbicide should be activated by at least one-half inch of rainfall or irrigation to set up a solid control area around weed seedlings. As the weed seeds germinate, Snapshot disrupts their development. Seedlings gradually die before they ever break the soil surface.


Active ingredient

Snapshot contains the active ingredients isoxaben and trifluralin. Isoxaben is found in Gallery® specialty herbicide, and trifluralin is a component of Team® Pro specialty herbicide. Together, they provide excellent plant tolerance and long-lasting, broad-spectrum control. Snapshot bonds tightly with soil particles and is low in water solubility.


When to apply

Apply Snapshot in late summer to early fall, in early spring prior to germination of target weeds, or anytime immediately after cultivation. Following application, monitor weed control over time to determine when additional applications may be needed.


Timing of irrigation

Snapshot will wait three days for rainfall or irrigation to activate, which gives you application flexibility. If rainfall or irrigation has not occurred within the required time frame, Snapshot may be activated using cultivation equipment capable of uniformly mixing it into the upper 1 to 2 inches of soil.


How to apply

Depending on the weeds to be controlled, apply 100 – 200 pounds per acre according to the label, using a drop or rotary-type spreader. Calibrate application equipment prior to use according to the manufacturer's directions.


Repeat applications at 150 pounds per acre and higher should not be made sooner than 60 days of original application.


Do not apply more than 600 pounds per acre within a 12-month period.



Before applying Snapshot, remember:

  • Weed residues, prunings and trash should be removed or thoroughly mixed into soil prior to treatment.


Do not apply Snapshot to:

  • Newly transplanted ornamentals until soil has been settled by packing and irrigation or rainfall.
  • Unrooted liners or cuttings that have been planted in pots for the first time.
  • Pots less than 4 inches wide.
