• Studies have shown XONERATE to be 90 percent effective in controlling Poa annua.
• By eliminating Poa annua, you’re also eliminating the time and expense of trying to manage it.
• Xonerate can be used as a post-emergent control for smaller percentages of Poa annua, while transitioning to desirable turfgrass.
