Product Description: Mesotrione MESO 4SC Select contains the same active ingredient as the popular Tenacity Herbicide. This herbicide represses photosynthesis in susceptible and receptive plants as it is absorbed systemically through roots, leaves, and shoots. It can be effectively used against weed invasion and also promotes excellent control of tough-to-control weeds before and during seeding of particular types of turfgrasses.
This formula can be used anytime during seeding including overseeding of established turfgrass, during renovation, or bare ground seeding. Weeds are expected to die and wither within 3 weeks from the application, turning the weeds white in color due to the loss of chlorophyll. Whitening of the turfgrass is common but temporary and typically occurs between 5 to 7 days after application and may last for several weeks. A non-ionic surfactant should be added in post-emergence applications.
Application Information: Use the included syringe to dilute Mesotrione with water in a pump or backpack sprayer. Mesotrione can be used on the following grass types: Cool Season Lawns - Kentucky Bluegrass, Turf Type Tall Fescue, Fine Fescue, Ryegrass. Warm Season Lawns - Centipede, Buffalograss Note: Mesotrione is labeled for St. Augustine Grass, but only on sod farms, not home lawns DO NOT apply this product on bentgrass, kikuyugrass, zoysiagrass, seashore paspalum, or bermudagrass
