Defendor™ specialty herbicide, Dow AgroSciences’ newest postemergence herbicide for early season broadleaf weed control, has received registration in New York and Massachusetts, in addition to 45 other states.
Defendor provides early season control of dandelion and prevents the dreaded dandelion bloom. It also controls clover, chickweed and other annual and perennial broadleaf weeds for healthier, more attractive turf. Defendor is available in a “Value Pak” with Dimension® 2EW specialty herbicide to be tank-mixed for proven crabgrass and broadleaf weed control, giving turf managers more time to complete the first applications of the season. Because this combination controls high-anxiety weeds before they bloom, it greatly reduces callbacks and minimizes complaints.
“Spring trials with Defendor plus Dimension 2EW were excellent,” says Andy Kaler, Dow AgroSciences Turf & Ornamental product manager. “Turf managers saw effective weed control with no off-target injury.”
State registrations from Arizona, California and Hawaii are still pending.
State restrictions on the sale and use of Defendor and Dimension 2EW apply. Consult the label before purchase or use for full details.
