Q4 Plus

Active Ingredient: Quinclorac/Sulfentrazone/2,4-D/Dicamba

MSDSSPECMore Info

Q4 Plus

Q4® Plus offers a single product control option for yellow nutsedge and grassy and broadleaf weed control in established turfgrass areas. Users appreciate the convenience of one product for crabgrass, yellow nutsedge and broadleaf weed control making this a versatile allin-one product. Q4 Plus Turf Herbicide is a patented product containing four (4) active ingredients: Quinclorac + Sulfentrazone + 2,4-D + Dicamba and was designed to replace Trimec® Plus. With MSMA no longer available for use on residential and commercial turf, Q4 Plus offers the professional turf manager more knockout power and the speed associated with the Gordon's® line of ProForm® products. Q4 Plus contains 0.75 lbs. ai/acre of quinclorac for enhanced control of grassy weeds such as crabgrass and foxtail. Quinclorac is absorbed by both the leaves and roots and is translocated throughout the plant. The effects on grassy weeds include stunting, gradual reddening and yellowing followed by plant death. The sulfentrazone in Q4 Plus adds fastacting yellow nutsedge control as a bonus. Formulated with precise ratios of 2,4-D and dicamba, the weed spectrum is broadened. The combination of these ingredients results in systemic and contact activity with multiple modes of action. Q4 Plus has dramatically less dis-coloration on cool-season turf compared to MSMA. Call-backs are a thing of the past when your clients and members can see fast results, usually within 24 to 48 hours. Q4 Plus is highly selective on coolseason turf grasses. Labeled species include bluegrasses, perennial and annual ryegrasses, fescues and bermudagrass.
