Similar or comparable to Broadside Herbicide (Nufarm), Triple Time Herbicide (Amgrow) & Triplet Herbicide (Barmac).
Fairway Turf Herbicide is for the control of broadleaf weeds in a wide range of recreational turf situations. Fairway can be used on a large number of established turf varieties, including Common Couch, Qld Blue Couch, Kikuyu, Paspalum, Fescue, Bentgrass and Ryegrass. Fairway Herbicide can also be used for the control of certain broadleaf weeds in wheat, barley, cereal rye, oats & triticale.
A key feature of Fairway Turf Herbicide is that it provides quick weed knockdown and is one of the broadest spectrum broadleaf weed herbicides available on the market, registered to control 11 tough weeds. Fairway contains a dual mode of action for improved performance and resistance management.
What turf situations can Fairway Turf Herbicide be used in;
- Recreational turf
- Established Couch (Including Queensland Blue)

What are the benefits of dual modes of action (Group C & I) in Fairway Turf Herbicide;
Bromoxynil, one of the active ingredients in Fairway Herbicide, is a fast-acting nitrile herbicide (Group C) that works on contact by inhibiting photosynthesis in target plants. The compound is readily absorbed into leaves with little to no downward movement to other plant parts. Susceptible weeds quickly die from the build-up of molecules that destroy cell membranes.
The other 2 active ingredients in Fairway Turf Herbicide are MCPA and dicamba (Group I). These active ingredients are hormone-type selective herbicides in the phenoxy category. MCPA and dicamba provide systemic activity through leaf and root absorption. They upset the normal hormone balance within the plant. Auxin mimic herbicides cause unregulated plant growth, resulting in symptoms on susceptible plants that include growth and reproduction abnormalities (especially on new growth).
Broadleaf weed species exhibit stem and petiole twisting (epinasty), leaf malformations, parallel venation, crinkling, leaf strapping, stem callus formation, and stunted root growth. Plant death is gradual, due to unconstrained mobilization of reserves, however generally symptoms are observed within 7 – 14 days following application.
