Departure® Herbicide Receives Registration for Lawn Care, Golf Courses and Ornamental Uses

Greensboro, NC, USA, June 3, 2010
Departure® Herbicide Receives Registration for Lawn Care, Golf Courses and Ornamental Uses
Departure® non-selective herbicide from Syngenta has received registration from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for use on residential and commercial lawns, golf courses, sod farms, athletic fields, and for ornamental production.
The product is a highly-concentrated, liquid formulation of glyphosate for broad- spectrum, systemic and non-selective control of more than 170 emerged annual and perennial grass and broadleaf weeds. Departure is also labeled for a broad range of turfgrass applications including turf renovation and winter weed control in dormant bermudagrass.
Because of the high concentration of the active ingredient glyphosate, a 2.5-gallon container of Departure can treat 39 percent more area than traditional glyphosate products.
“Departure is an ideal tool turfgrass professionals can use for convenient, reliable, cost-effective weed control and outstanding results,” said Pat Willenbrock, herbicide brand manager for Syngenta. “Because its high concentration is available in both 2.5-gallon jugs and 20-gallon bulk packs, Departure makes product handling more convenient and reduces the number of containers that turf professionals need to rinse and recycle.”
Additional features include:
·         Low foam, smell and viscosity allows for easy handling and mixing
·         Excellent tank-mix compatibility with many other herbicide products
·         Rainfast within 30 minutes after application
·         Purchases qualify for the 2010 GreenTrust® 365 Purchase Program
As with all products, it is important to read and follow label instructions when using Departure.
Departure is not currently registered for sale or use in all states. Please check with your state or local extension service before buying or using this product.
