Outrider

Active Ingredient: Sulfosulfuron

MSDSSPECMore Info

Outrider

Outrider® herbicide was developed to manage a wide range of annual and perennial weeds that are a problem for roadside vegetation managers – including tough-to-control Johnsongrass, nutsedge and downy brome (cheatgrass). Outrider has proven to be tough on weeds, but gentle on warm-season grasses – including Bermudagrass, Bahiagrass and most native grasses. When applied as a post-emergent to actively growing weeds, Outrider is rapidly absorbed and moves systemically through the plant and to the roots for complete control. Over the years, it has become the herbicide of choice for a growing number of users looking for effective control of Johnsongrass, sedges and downy brome that infest miles of roadside and acres of pastures, hayfields and rangeland.
