WARM SEASON TURF (COMMON BERMUDAGRASS) - BROADCAST

General Information

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

SpeedZone Southern Broadleaf Herbicide for Turf contains four active ingredients including carfentrazone-ethyl that broaden the spectrum of weed control. Carfentrazone-ethyl is in the aryl triazolinone family and inhibits protoporphyrinogen oxidase (Protox), a pivotal enzyme in chlorophyll production. Without this key enzyme, a build-up of peroxide-like compounds occur, thus causing the plant cell membranes of weeds to rupture.

SpeedZone Southern Broadleaf Herbicide for Turf offers these advantages:

- Excellent postemergent activity with proven performance for

broadleaf weed control in turfgrass.

- Superior cool weather performance.

- High selectivity (turfgrass safety) in established cool season turfgrass and most warm season turfgrass.

- Good toxicological, environmental, and ecological properties compared to the standards.

- Carfentrazone-ethyl combinations provides rapid and effective weed control for common and troublesome weed species in turfgrass, e.g. spurge, pennywort (dollarweed), dandelion, and white clover.

- Fast acting with evidence of injury within hours. The speed of action (rate of phytotoxicity) and the early injury symptoms are unique features of carfentrazone-ethyl combinations. Generally, the injury symptoms can be noticed within hours of the application and plant death can occur within 7 to 14 days.

WHERE TO USE

SpeedZone Southern Broadleaf Herbicide for Turf provides selective broadleaf control in warm season and cool season turfgrass in five (5) use sites.

- Institutional sites are defined as turf areas around properties or facilities providing a service to public or private organizations including, but not limited to hospitals, nursing homes, schools, museums, libraries, sport facilities, golf courses (fairways, aprons, and roughs), and office buildings.

- Ornamental sites include turfgrass established around residences, parks, streets, retail outlets, cemeteries, industrial and institutional buildings, recreation areas, fairgrounds, areas adjacent to athletic fields and paved areas.

- Residential/domestic sites are defined as areas associated with the household or home life including, but not limited to apartment complexes, condominiums, and patient care areas of nursing homes, mental institutions, hospitals, or convalescent homes.

- Agricultural site: Commercial sod production

- Non-cropland sites: including farmyards, fencerows or fence lines, highway rights-of-way (principal, interstate, county, private, and unpaved roads): Roadsides, roadside ditches, road shoulders, road embankments, dividers, and medians; Industrial sites: Lumberyards, tank farms, fuel or equipment storage areas; Municipal, state, and federal lands: Airports and military installations; railroad rightsof-ways, railroad yards, railroad crossings and railroad bridge abutments; Utility rights-of-way: telephone, pipeline, electrical powerlines, and communication transmission lines.

Prohibitions of Sites:

- Do not apply to any body of water such as lakes, streams, rivers, ponds, reservoirs, or estuaries (salt water bays). Do not apply to any shorelines (noncropland sites adjacent to the edges of a body of water) for lakes, streams, rivers, ponds, reservoirs, or estuaries (salt water bays).

- Do not apply to wetlands (swamps, bogs, potholes, or marshes).

- Do not apply to agricultural irrigation water or on agricultural irrigation ditchbanks and canals.

- Do not apply to agricultural drainage water or on agricultural ditchbanks.

Turfgrass tolerance:

- The turfgrass tolerance to this product may vary and temporary turfgrass yellowing may occur on St. Augustinegrass and certain varieties (F1) hybrids of hybrid bermudagrass. SpeedZone Southern Broadleaf Herbicide for Turf may injure certain turfgrass species. Environmental conditions and certain spray tank additives (eg. adjuvants, wetting agents, surfactants), liquid fertilizers, and tank mixtures containing other emulsifiable concentrates may reduce the selectivity on the turfgrass.

Prohibitions:

- Do not apply this product to bentgrass greens, carpetgrass, dichondra, legumes, and lawns where desirable clovers are present.

- Do not broadcast apply this product when ambient temperatures are above 85°F, some injury may be expected with spot treatments when air temperatures exceed 85°F. For St. Augustinegrass see Table 1 of the label for specific temperature restrictions.

APPLICATION SCHEDULES

- Early postemergent applications of SpeedZone Southern Broadleaf Herbicide for Turf are recommended for annual, biennial, and perennial weeds. Apply this product to broadleaf weeds that are young and actively growing for the best results. SpeedZone Southern Broadleaf Herbicide for Turf combines a contact herbicide with systemic herbicides and provides little or no residual activity at recommended use rates.

- SpeedZone Southern Broadleaf Herbicide for Turf may be applied as a single broadcast application or as a follow-up broadcast application in the spring, summer, or fall. Spring and fall treatments under adequate soil moisture conditions are preferred to the summer treatments. Generally, summer broadcast applications to older, drought stressed weeds are less effective.

Follow-up applications as spot treatments with a minimum 30 day interval are recommended for more mature weeds, for dense infestations, and for adverse environmental conditions.

- Spot treatments during the summer may be appropriate for sparse infestations, or as a follow-up treatment, or any time broadleaf weeds are susceptible. Apply on a spray-to-wet basis for the best results.

- Extremes in environmental conditions e.g. temperature and moisture, soil conditions, and cultural practices may affect the activity of SpeedZone Southern Broadleaf Herbicide for Turf. Under warm moist conditions, herbicide symptoms may be accelerated. While under very dry conditions, the expression of herbicide symptoms is delayed, and weeds hardened off by drought are less susceptible to SpeedZone Southern Broadleaf Herbicide for Turf.

For newly seeded areas:

The application of SpeedZone Southern Broadleaf Herbicide for Turf to grass seedlings is recommended after the second mowing.

For newly sodded, sprigged, or plugged areas:

The application of SpeedZone Southern Broadleaf Herbicide for Turf to newly sodded, sprigged, or plugged grasses should be delayed until 3 to 4 weeks after the sodding, sprigging, or plugging operations.

For dormant turf:

Applications to dormant bermudagrass, dormant zoysiagrass, and dormant bahiagrass are suggested.

CULTURAL TIPS FOR IMPROVED CONTROL

Irrigation:

- Do not apply this product through any type of irrigation system.

- Do not apply this product immediately before rainfall or irrigation. Rainfast in 3 hours. Do not irrigate or water the turfgrass within 3 hours after application. If dry conditions exist, irrigation 8 hours before and 8 hours after application is recommended.

Mowing:

- Delay mowing 2 days before and until 2 days after the application of this product.

Reseeding interval:

- Treated areas may be reseeded 1 week after application.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

SOD FARMS, ORNAMENTAL LAWNS AND TURFGRASS

HOW MUCH TO USE: USE RATES AND SPRAY VOLUMES

Generally, the lower application rates within the specified range will provide satisfactory control of sensitive weed species. The higher application rates within the specified range will be required for dense infestations of perennial weeds, for adverse/extreme environmental conditions, or for weeds beyond the appropriate growth stages.

NOTE: If any discoloration is objectionable or any level of phytotoxicity would be unacceptable, then surfactants and other adjuvant(s) combined with SpeedZone Southern Broadleaf Herbicide for Turf are not recommended.

Recommended Spray Volume: 3 - 220 gallons/acre
