Dow says its Defendor specialty herbicide gives lawn care professionals a head start on broadleaf weed control when it’s too cool for other post-emergence herbicides to be effective.
Defendor provides early-season control of dandelion and prevents the dreaded dandelion bloom. It also controls clover, chickweed and other annual and perennial broadleaf weeds for healthier, more attractive turf.
Defendor is available in a “Value Pak” with Dimension 2EW specialty herbicide to be tank-mixed for proven crabgrass and broadleaf weed control, giving turf managers more time to complete the first applications of the season. Because this combination controls high-anxiety weeds before they bloom, it greatly reduces callbacks and minimizes complaints, Dow says.
