For optimum results in turf, it is best to apply Surefire Propyzamide 500 SC Herbicide prior to germination or to young, actively growing winter grass plants in Autumn / early Winter. Propyzamide is a systemic herbicide that is absorbed by the roots and translocated throughout the plant. Therefore, immediate irrigation with 12 – 25 mm of water is required to move the chemical into the root zone. Follow-up irrigation with 12 – 25 mm is required 24 hours later. This amount of water is not solely used to incorporate the propyzamide into the root zone, this amount of water also facilitates the essential need to solubilize the propyzamide, without total solubilization of the active means the plant can only absorb less than a lethal dose of propyzamide – resulting in poor efficacy. Best results are obtained by applying the product to cool, moist soil
When used in Turf, Surefire Propyzamide 500 SC Herbicide works by stunting the growth of Winter Grass, particularly the germinating seed which will start coming up in Autumn (generally speaking). Having stunted/stopped the plant´s growth, it can not spread/reproduce. Sustained treatment is required to control winter grass, and ok for Buffalo and Couch lawns.
