Valent Professional Products’ SureGuard Herbicide is now registered for use on dormant bermudagrass.

SureGuard provides golf course superintendents, lawn care operators and other turf pros with both effective, fast-acting postemergence and season-long preemergence control of Poa annua. SureGuard also delivers consistent postemergence and residual control of winter annual broadleaf weeds such as chickweed and henbit.

The ideal timing for SureGuard dormant turf applications for preemergence control is typically November and December, but it can provide effective control even when applied in January through March. For postemergence control, SureGuard should be applied when Poa annua is young and actively growing during bermudagrass dormancy, says a release from Valent Professional Products.
