Dismiss turf herbicide has received approval from the Environmental Protection Agency for label amendments indicating new uses and will be available with new packaging. The amendments will take effect nationwide in states that have already approved the original Dismiss label.
Rick Ekins, turf and ornamental products manager for FMC Professional Solutions, says the amendments are important to the golf course and lawn care industries because they provide new stewardship guidelines, decrease overseeding and reseeding intervals and reduce sod establishment intervals. According to Dismiss, it is not uncommon to discover new uses for products in the turf protection industry and to seek label changes to reflect those uses.
“Dismiss turf herbicide continues to offer lawn care operators, golf course superintendents and other turf professionals effective, fast control of tough sedges,” Ekins says.
Under the label amendments, Dismiss is approved for postemergent control of goosegrass and control of St. Augustine grass. Other label changes include shortened overseeding and reseeding intervals, a shortened sod establishment interval, a purple nutsedge split application table and a reminder that surfactants are not recommended.
Dismiss is also available with new product packaging. Users have the choice of the current packaging or 2-ounce dosing containers, which Ekins says are more convenient for lawn care operators. “This new container size and the newly approved label amendments are market-driven product solutions for the various turf segments – further proving our commitment to Customer Driven Innovation.”
