Kerb SC T&O uses a new measurement scale to streamline application.

| February 11, 2012

INDIANAPOLIS – Dow AgroSciences has launched Kerb SC T&O specialty herbicide, a new formulation that uses pints per acre, rather than pounds, making it easier to match rates to the treatment area.

“The suspendable concentrate formulation has been a standard in key markets. We have combined the performance you know from Kerb with a more user-friendly formulation,” says Andy Kaler, product manager with Dow AgroSciences.

Kerb SC T&O provides both preemergence and early postemergence control of many winter annual and perennial grasses, including annual bluegrass (Poa annua) from warm-season grasses and the removal of perennial ryegrass from warm-season grasses during spring transition, the company says. The new product replaces Kerb 50WP specialty herbicide, and is now available in most states.

The new liquid formulation also is easier on equipment and reduces worker exposure, the company says.
