Dow AgroSciences has received federal registration of Defendor specialty herbicide, a post-emergence product designed to be applied early in the season in cool weather to eliminate unsightly dandelion blooms, and also control clover and other winter annual and perennial weeds.
- Can be applied at the same time lawn care operators make their first pre-emergent applications of the season, giving them a head start on broadleaf weed control and more flexibility when scheduling applications
- With the active ingredient florasulam, Defendor comes in a convenient liquid formulation and can be tank-mixed with Dimension 2EW specialty herbicide for early season broadleaf weed control and proven pre-emergence crabgrass control
- Effective at extremely low use rates compared with competitive post-emergence products, Dow says, reducing the total herbicide load on the environment
- Labeled for use on both cool- and warm-season turf
