New York golf course superintendents now have consistent, effective control for Poa transition programs. Valent Professional Products announced that Velocity® Herbicide has been approved by the New York Department of Environmental Conservation for use on Poa annua and Poa trivialis in the state’s bentgrass tees and fairways.

Velocity brings New York golf course superintendents a more effective and consistent method to gradually transition a Poa-dominated stand of turf to pure bentgrass.

“Historically, New York superintendents had to tolerate Poa on their golf courses,” said Dr. Jason Fausey, regional field development manager for Valent Professional Products. “Velocity can help them effectively transition Poa off their course over time with little to no disruption to the course.”

For a Velocity transition program in New York, Fausey recommended golf course superintendents apply a 2 oz/A spray of Velocity once a month over the course’s growing season until the average daily air temperature drops below 65 degrees.

“This transitional program is easy to manage and incorporate and will set you up for a really nice decline in Poa by the following spring,” Fausey said.
