    Has anyone ever used or know anything about Embark Herbicide as a plant growth regulator? Thanks

    Embark was one of the first growth regulators to come on market. It turns the grass brown when it is applied, similiar to drought stress in the summer (this was on KBG, you may have different grasses where you are). Anyways, I am not impressed with Embark, now that there are better PGR's on the market.

    Mike. I was planning on using the Embark on shrubs such as, Indian Hawthornes, hollies, etc. Have you ever used it on shrubs?

    Yes it is more expensive but its a better product and I think your customers would be pleased with the results.

    I have used both.
