Answer: The active ingredient in Casoron is Dichlobenil. The product is a pre-emergent herbicide designed to keep weed seeds from germinating. The effect of this material on non-woody plants is that it inhibits the growth of roots and shoots. Activated charcoal is recommended to neutralize the product if it has been ingested. Thank goodness that's not the case! There's not much that can be done other than to allow the active ingredient to break down naturally and dissipate on its own.
