Reclaim the Fairways.



Thanks to Velocity® SG Herbicide, golf course superintendents no longer have to tolerate Poa. Velocity can gradually eliminate both Poa annua and Poa trivialis from creeping bentgrass and effectively transition a Poa-dominated mixed stand of turf to pure bentgrass. Plus, it suppresses dollar spot and selectively controls other broadleaf weeds. Now in an easy-to-use 17.6% SG formulation, Velocity is the best way to convert Poa-infested turf back to bentgrass.


KNOCK OUT POA
  • Manages Poa annua and Poa trivialis
  • Slow or rapid transition strategies
  • Offers more than Poa control: broadleaf weed control and dollar spot suppression

APPLICATION RECOMMENDATIONS
Apply Velocity SG using standard, low pressure (20 to 50 psi) spray equipment in a sufficient volume of water to provide thorough spray coverage and a uniform spray pattern. To ensure thorough coverage, apply a minimum of 20 gals of spray solution per acre. Apply Velocity SG with ground equipment using standard commercial sprayers equipped with nozzles designed to deliver the desired spray pressure and spray volume. Avoid streaking, skips or excessive overlaps during application. Do not apply with flood jet nozzles, air induction nozzles or hand held sprayers, as equipment may not provide adequate or uniform coverage. Calibrate spray equipment before each use and check periodically during application. The addition of a spray indicator, such as dyes or foams, is recommended.
