Defendor(TM) Specialty Herbicide Receives Additional State Registrations

Labeled for use on both cool- and warm-season turf, Defendor is recommended for residential lawns and golf courses (fairways and roughs). It also provides activity at extremely low use rates when compared with other postemergence herbicides.

Defendor(TM) specialty herbicide, Dow AgroSciences' newest postemergence herbicide for early season broadleaf weed control, is now registered in 49 states, including Arizona, Hawaii, Massachusetts and New York. State registration in California is pending.

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(R) 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.

"Trials with Defendor plus Dimension 2EW were excellent," said Maureen Clark, Turf & Ornamental product manager. "Turf managers saw effective weed control with no off-target injury."
