Syngenta's Manuscript herbicide label has been adjusted to provide postemergent weed control on cool-season grasses on lawns, sod farms, golf courses and sports turf.
The updated label features expanded state registrations in the Northern and Midwestern U.S. and new uses for centipedegrass, fine fescue and Poa annua. These changes will provide turf managers with a new option for controlling ryegrass in Poa annua turf, as well as foxtails, ryegrass and barnyardgrass in native and low-maintenance fine fescue turf areas.
“We’re excited about the benefits the enhanced Manuscript label will bring to the turf market,” said Stephanie Schwenke, market manager for turf at Syngenta. “With limited options for postemergent control of grassy weeds in Poa annua, turf managers will now have a solution with Manuscript.”
Powered by the active ingredient, pinoxaden, Manuscript has been trusted by turf managers to control persistent grassy weeds in warm-season turf species since it was first launched in 2018. It also includes a built-in, proprietary safener, which enables spot treatment rates to increase weed control while maintaining turf safety.
