Powerzone

PowerZone® Broadleaf Herbicide for Turf is a precision formulation of carfentrazone + MCPA + MCPP + dicamba. It provides exceptional broadleaf weed control – fast. In university and cooperator tests, PowerZone applications have repeatedly controlled tough weeds like clover, plantain, oxalis, ground ivy and spurge with a fast-acting, cool-weather response exhibiting activity within hours. PowerZone contains an advanced chemistry for broadleaf weed control in turf. The mode of action inhibits a key enzyme during chlorophyll production. Generally, injury symptoms to weeds can be noticed within hours of the application and plant death can occur within 7 to 14 days. PowerZone opens up more application opportunities than most herbicide products. Where broadcast applications of 2,4-D containing herbicides are limited to two per year, PowerZone can be used in a third broadcast application if needed. Additionally, PowerZone excels in cool-weather weed control so applications can be made earlier in the spring and up to a killing frost in the fall. Rainfast in as little as three hours, there is less concern about weather interference. With PowerZone you can reseed in two weeks. A low-odor formulation, PowerZone can be applied without raising unnecessary concerns over pesticide applications. PowerZone is highly selective in established cool-season and warm-season turfgrasses

Preferal

Active Ingredient: Isaria fumosorosea Apopka Strain 97

MSDSSPECMore Info

Preferal

Preferal Microbial Insecticide is a naturally-occurring fungus that infects both foliage and soil dwelling insects such as whiteflies, aphids, thrips, weevils, psyllids, leafminers, spider mites, mealybugs, and other pests. Preferal is registered by the EPA and is labeled for use in the greenhouse, nursery, landscape and turf markets. Isaira Fumosorosea, the active component in Preferal, is a naturally occurring fungus which infects many insect and mite pests that occur on foliage and other above-ground plant, as well as many soil-dwelling pests. Under proper environmental conditions, spores of the fungus attach to and penetrate the cuticle of the target pest. The fungus grows inside the insects causing its death. The fungus then emerges from the dead insect to release more spores to infect other insects.
