Dow AgroSciences has received federal registration of Gallery SC specialty herbicide—a new, convenient liquid formulation. Dow says this easy-to-use suspension concentrate formulation provides excellent plant tolerance and long-lasting control of more than 95 species of broadleaf weeds—including chickweed, spurge and oxalis—for up to six to eight months, depending on environmental conditions.
The new concentrated formula is also designed to greatly reduce rinsing and disposal. Applied at a rate of 1 quart per acre, Gallery SC in the 2-gallon jug will cover 8.25 acres in a single container. Gallery SC is available in 1-quart and 2-gallon containers.
“We have combined the superior performance you know from Gallery 75DF with a more user-friendly liquid formulation,” says Maureen Clark, Dow AgroSciences Turf & Ornamental product manager.
Gallery SC contains the unique active ingredient isoxaben, developed by Dow AgroSciences. It can be applied with confidence on 714 field-grown and 562 container-grown ornamentals—reportedly more than any other pre-emergence herbicide on the market. It bonds tightly with soil particles and has a low water solubility, so it won’t move out of the weed germination zone. Studies show that Gallery specialty herbicide is stable on the soil surface and stays put, even in heavy rainfall, Dow assures.
The product will be available in fall 2014.
