Revolver Receives Commercial, Home Lawns and Sports Turf Registration
Revolver herbicide, a new postemergence sulfonylurea herbicide, has received additional registration for use on commercial and home lawns, sports fields, roadsides, school grounds, cemeteries and recreational areas, Bayer Environmental Science recently announced. Revolver received initial registration from the EPA for use on golf courses and sod farms in February.
Applied as a broadcast, foliar spray, Revolver selectively controls unwanted cool-season grasses without harming the desirable grasses. It is labeled for use on the following bermudagrasses: common, Tifway 419, Tifgreen 328, Tifsport, Tifdwarf and Vamont. Revolver also may be used on Meyer zoysiagrass.
“In the lawn care and recreational turf markets, Revolver will be used primarily to remove unwanted cool season grasses, such as such as Poa annua, Poa trivialis, perennial ryegrass, bentgrass, bluegrass, and tall fescue, as well as henbit and goosegrass, from actively growing bermudagrass and zoysiagrass,” said George Raymond, Bayer Environmental Science business manager for herbicides/PGR’s. ”It also can be used as a transition aid on sites that are overseeded during winter months."
