Katana Turf Herbicide gets expanded registration

Supplier News

Katana can now be used in California for the first time as a targeted residential weed control option.

| August 23, 2013

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – PBI-Gordon Corp. announced that its Katana Turf Herbicide received registration with the State of California Department of Pesticide Regulation, allowing its use as a spot treatment on residential lawns. Additionally, there are expanded use directions on professionally managed sports turf; previously, it had been approved only for “professionally managed college and professional sports fields”. The herbicide had previously received EPA registration and been available in most southern and transition zone states.

The labeling permits Katana to be used on golf courses (fairways, roughs and tees) and the following turf areas: industrial parks, tank farms, sod farms, seed farms, cemeteries, professionally managed sports fields, commercial turf and residential turf. In residential turf grass, Katana can be applied on up to 10 percent of a lawn through targeted or spot treatment with spray directed on the weeds.

Katana Turf Herbicide is part of PBI-Gordon’s ProForm product line of herbicides. Like other products in this line, Katana continues to work in cooler weather, and is not as temperature-dependent as competitive products.
The herbicide is labeled for control of 58 weeds including sedges, grasses and broadleaf weeds with post-emergence and some pre-emergence activity. Highly selective in bermuda, zoysia, centipede and buffalo grasses, and seashore paspalum, Katana is also an excellent product for removal of overseeded cool-season grasses. In addition, university trials prove Katana excels in controlling Poa annua, ryegrass, clumpy ryegrass, Poa trivialis, tall fescue and annual ryegrass in warm-season turf.
