Read on to check Linda’s responses to questions regarding the unique compound and benefits of one of the best Sipcam’s crop protection products.
How do your products or services save golf course superintendents time?
The unique combination of the active ingredients in Coastal herbicide gives the superintendent preemergent and postemergent control on some difficult-to-control weeds. Multiple active ingredients with multiple modes of action mean less tank mixing and fewer container to the triple rinse and dispose of.
In addition, the spectrum of weed control minimizes the number of products a superintendent needs to add to the tank mix.
How do your products or services save labor?
At a maximum use rate of 64 ounces per acre, and the combination of key herbicides, less cases and products to mix equals more time applying and less time at the fill station. Fewer products to mix also produce the potential for mistakes. Both pre and postmergent qualities allow the superintendent flexibility of timing based on target weeds and specific requirements when implementing their agronomic strategy and labor needs.
How do your products or services fit in with resistance management programs?
Without a doubt, one of the biggest challenges a superintendent faces today is resistance management. The rotation of chemistries and a sound agronomic program are key.
We designed Coastal herbicide with that in min. Simplicity and ease of use make Coastal herbicide a strategic product when designing turf management programs. Resistant weeds and weed shift created a need for a product like Coastal herbicide to be added to a superintendent’s rotation of herbicides in their arsenal.
How does your product or services allow for application flexibility on multiple turf types?
Coastal herbicide is registered for use on all four major warm-season turf types including Bermuda grass, Zoysia grass, St. Augustine and Centipede grasses. This allows the superintendent to apply one product in one tank on multiple sites, including clubhouse lawns and surrounding areas.
