Curfew Soil Fumigant Now Available for Use in Mississippi
Curfew soil fumigant, a nematicide manufactured by Dow AgroSciences, has been granted a 24(c) label from the Mississippi Environmental Protection Agency, making it available for use on turf throughout the state. This is in addition to the existing labels presently in place in Florida, South Carolina, Georgia and Alabama.
Curfew offers improved rooting and provides effective control of parasitic nematodes--microscopic organisms that feed on and damage turfgrass roots--and also controls mole crickets present at time of application. With improved rooting, turf is more drought- and stress- tolerant. It is accepted for use on golf course fairways, tees and putting greens as well as on athletic fields.
Most warm-season turfgrass and creeping bentgrass are tolerant to Curfew.
Curfew dissipates rapidly and can only be injected by authorized applicators.
