Will Ranger Pro Herbicide kill Pilea microphylla (Artillery Fern)?

I understand the active ingredient to kill artillery fern is Atrozine Glyphosate? This is a nuisance plant in my Florida yard not controlled by Roundup.

Answer:

Ranger Pro contains glyphosate only and is considered a generic Roundup product.  Glyphosate is an active that should kill anything that it is applied to.  Atrazine products are not actually labeled for this weed and there is not a product that has the 2 actives together.  We are not able to find any product actually labeled to control this weed but would recommend you contact your Master Gardener through your Extension Office for advice on what you could use that will not harm your lawn as well.
