Syngenta Introduces Manuscript Herbicide for Selective Control of Mature Weeds in Turf

  • Manuscript® herbicide offers application flexibility to treat actively growing weeds
  • Provides outstanding turf safety for golf courses, sod farms, sports turf and lawns
  • Ideal for use in summer when desirable turfgrass can quickly regrow

 

To help golf course superintendents, sports turf managers and sod growers manage mature grassy weeds, Syngenta has launched new Manuscript herbicide. It is specially designed to provide post-emergence control of weeds like tropical signalgrass, bull/thin paspalum, crabgrass and dallisgrass in certain warm-season turf species on golf courses, sod farms and sports turf.

“Syngenta is delivering an exciting new technology for managing mature weeds that are tough to control,” said Stephanie Schwenke, turf market manager for Syngenta. “Now available during the GreenTrust® 365 Early Order Period, Manuscript will help our customers manage their golf courses, sports fields and sod farms while the turf is actively growing throughout the season.”

Manuscript is powered by pinoxaden, a new active ingredient for the turf industry. It has an advanced form of ACCase mode of action, which helps control grassy weeds like tropical signalgrass, bull/thin paspalum, crabgrass and dallisgrass in bermudagrass and zoysiagrass turf. This herbicide can be used anytime the weeds are actively growing, including in the heat of the summer when desired turfgrass is actively growing and fills in more rapidly. For sod growers, Manuscript may also be used on St. Augustinegrass, in addition to bermudagrass and zoysiagrass crops.

Manuscript also features a built-in safener that speeds the metabolism of pinoxaden in desirable turf to help improve turf safety, without sacrificing control of mature, difficult-to-control weeds. This allows for effective spot treatments, further improving selectivity against tough weeds.

“Manuscript was specially designed for turf safety and potent activity on certain weeds,” said Lane Tredway, Ph.D., technical services manager for Syngenta. “These are just a few of the unique features that enable Manuscript to improve the uniformity, playability and aesthetic quality of treated turf.”

Manuscript is packaged with Adigor™ surfactant from Syngenta, which is custom-built for use with Manuscript for improved rainfastness and faster weed control. Using Adigor with Manuscript maximizes the quantity and rate of absorption of pinoxaden, as well as the degree of translocation once pinoxaden is in the plant.

Additionally, when applied to desired turf according to the label, Manuscript has been shown to be safe to use around ornamental beds and shrubs, giving you confidence when you apply.
