Knox Fertilizer Receives EPA Registration for Shaw's® Turf Food with Acelepryn® and Dimension®
New product available for spring 2011 provides season-long control of grubs and crabgrass in one early season fertilizer application
Knox, Ind. - Knox Fertilizer Company has been granted EPA registration for its product, Shaw's® Turf Food with Acelepryn® and Dimension®, providing season long control of crabgrass and grubs in one early season application.
Available now, Shaw's Turf Food with Acelepryn and Dimension gives lawn-care professionals and golf course superintendents an opportunity to eliminate two of the most challenging turfgrass pests while providing balanced plant nutrient needs for as long as 90 to 180 days.
The new plant food-insecticide-herbicide combination is a granular product that is easy to apply in standard equipment to provide excellent, uniform coverage, even in difficult-to-reach areas.
Applied before or during egg-laying, but before egg-hatch, Acelepryn insecticide controls all white grub species plus key insect pests, such as annual bluegrass weevil, cutworms, catepillars and crane flies. It has low impact on non-target organisms.
Dimension herbicide provides excellent preemergence and early postemergence control of all three types of crabgrass - large, smooth and southern species - when applied before crabgrass tillering. Dimension will also control or suppress more than 40 annual grass and broadleaf weeds with exceptional safety to turf grasses.
