INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Defendor specialty herbicide, Dow AgroSciences’ newest postemergence herbicide for early-season broadleaf weed control, has received registration in New York and Massachusetts, in addition to 45 other states.

Defendor provides early-season control of dandelion and prevents the dreaded dandelion bloom. It also controls clover, chickweed and other annual and perennial broadleaf weeds for healthier, more attractive turf. 

State registrations from Arizona, California and Hawaii are still pending.
