Imprelis in compost?

I have read that Imprelis states this on the label. Is this true?

"Do not use grass clippings from treated areas for mulching or compost, or allow for collection to composting facilities. Grass clippings must either be left on the treated area, or, if allowed by local yard waste regulations, disposed of in the trash. Applicators must give verbal or written notice to property owner/property manager/residents to not use grass clippings from treated turf for mulch or compost."

Sure beats having a healthy and thick lawn control its own weed population!

Ok so I read the label. I don't see how you could use Imprelis around here if you follow all of the directions. Almost everybody composts their grass clippings in this area.

From what I just read on the lable, Imprelis is a broad leaf weed control. Am I getting the links confused any one?

The problem came in when Barry accidentally posted a link to the Acelypryn label.
