Active Ingredient: Metribuzin @ 400g/L
Metric Herbicide is for the selective post-emergent control of Crowsfoot Grass, Winter Grass and Summer Grass in certain turf species.
Metric is a unique selective turfgrass herbicide containing 400g/L of the active ingredient Metribuzin. It is the first Metribuzin-based herbicide in Australia to be registered for the control of crowsfoot grass in common couch grass turf and is labelled for use in Qld, WA, NT and the ‘Northern Rivers region of NSW only.
Metric is a selective post-emergent herbicide for application after the emergence of weeds, for the control of certain weeds in established turf. Metric is absorbed by roots, shoots and leaves of weeds.
What established turf species can Metric Herbicide be used on;
- Green Couch
- Empire Zoysia
- Queensland Blue Couch
- Sir Walter Buffalo
Do not use on Chewing’s Fescue or Ryegrass (annual or perennial).
Varietal differences in certain Couch & Hybrid Couch grasses may produce more pronounced effects and it is recommended that small areas be tested for turf safety before largescale application occurs. Avoid exceeding application rates through overlapping sprayed areas
What weeds does Metric Herbicide target;
- Crowsfoot grass (Eleusine indica)
- Winter grass (Poa Annua)
- Summer grass (Crabgrass) (Digitaria ciliaris)
The degree of control resulting from the application of Metric is primarily dependent upon weed species, weed size at application, environmental conditions, amount of Metric applied and growing conditions. Weed control is improved when ample soil moisture exists, and weeds are actively growing, rather than when the soil is dry and weeds are under stress from the lack of moisture. As with most herbicides, Metric will perform best on younger, actively growing weeds. Adequate soil moisture has been shown to play a role in achieving good control of target weeds
What is the Turf Tolerance with Metric Herbicide;
Following an application of Metric slight discolouration of the couch turf surface may be observed. At the label rate of 1L/Ha, any discolouration that may be observed will peak around one week after application and begin fading to disappear by three weeks after application. If the label rate is exceeded a greater level of discolouration can be expected.
