FMC Professional Solutions says to add its QuickSilver herbicide to every post-emergence herbicide tank mix so you can watch a broad spectrum of mature, perennial broadleaf weeds disappear in a hurry. Plus, QuickSilver is uniquely engineered to be effective in both cool and warm climates.
Although QuickSilver is tough on broadleaf weeds, FMC points out, it is gentle on a variety of grasses including Bermudagrass and St. Augustinegrass, even in newly seeded, sodded or sprigged areas. Carfentrazone-ethyl, the active ingredient in QuickSilver, is one of the most environmentally sensitive herbicides available. It does not impact birds or earthworms, and is unlikely to harm honeybees, predators or parasites. Featuring a favorable safety profile, QuickSilver minimizes skin irritation when compared to other broadleaf herbicides.
QuickSilver is rainfast within one hour of application and leaves minimal residue, so it won’t affect reseeding. It is registered for post-emergence broadleaf control in most species of newly seeded, sodded or sprigged turfgrass when applied seven days or more following seedling emergence.
