Arysta LifeScience North America has announced XONERATE Herbicide now is approved for sales and distribution in the state of Florida. This is the 45th state to receive approval on XONERATE.

Specifically, XONERATE Herbicide now provides a solution to Florida’s turf & ornamental professionals that eliminates Poa annua on a variety of outdoor surfaces.
It is available in an easy-to-use, water-dispersible granule formulation and offers selective removal of Poa annua in warm-season turfgrasses (including Seashore Paspalum and Bermuda grass).

“Many turfgrasses provide conditions ideal for Poa annua growth, including high moisture, nitrogen and high-traffic areas,” said Doug Houseworth, technical services manager, Arysta LifeScience.

“In turn, XONERATE eliminates the Poa with little to no disruption to the growth of desireable warm-season grasses. We know this will be a welcomed tool for T&O professionals and golf course superintendents throughout Florida as they work to eliminate Poa.”

XONERATE works as it is absorbed by plant leaves and roots. It inhibits photosynthesis in sensitive plants; with Poa annua, the weed loses its green color and becomes brown.
