TURFGRASS - ANNUAL WEED CONTROL DURING BERMUDAGRASS ESTABLISHMENT FROM SPRIGS

General Information

PRODUCT INFORMATION

RONSTAR FLO HERBICIDE is a selective, preemergent herbicide for control of many annual grasses and broadleaf weeds in turf and on a variety of woody ornamental shrubs and trees. RONSTAR FLO HERBICIDE controls weeds by killing the young weed seedlings as they come in contact with the herbicide during germination.

Apply RONSTAR FLO HERBICIDE with a properly calibrated sprayer that will apply the spray solution uniformly (uniform application is essential for satisfactory weed control). Calibrate the sprayer prior to use, according to the manufacturer’s directions and check daily to be certain that the equipment is working properly.

Do not allow domestic animals to graze treated areas. Avoid contamination of water intended for irrigation and domestic use.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

TURF

For use in dormant, established Bermudagrass, St. Augustinegrass* and Zoysia turf* such as fairways, parks, golf courses and lawns. RONSTAR FLO HERBICIDE controls Crabgrass, Goosegrass, Annual Bluegrass, Annual Sedge and Virginia Buttonweed.

RONSTAR FLO HERBICIDE must be applied at least 2-3 weeks prior to green up. Rake turf area free of leaves, mowing if necessary so the spray solution reaches the soil surface. Measure the area to be treated and uniformly apply the amount required. If rain is not expected shortly after application, irrigate the turf thoroughly.

*DO NOT USE ON ST. AUGUSTINE GRASS OR ZOYSIA TURF IN CALIFORNIA.
Hawaii only: RONSTAR FLO HERBICIDE may be applied to newly sprigged Zoysiagrass being grown for sod. Insure the spray reaches the soil surface and if rain is not expected shortly after application, irrigate the turf thoroughly.
