Solitare herbicide from FMC Professional Solutions provides fast, visible results for postemergence control of crabgrass, sedges, and broadleaf weeds. Solitare is an optimized formulation of active ingredients that eliminates the need to mix multiple postemergence products together in order to find the right solution. In mid-to-late summer, multiple weeds start breaking through. That’s where the Solitare Sweet Spot value is delivered. “It’s more economical to have a tank of Solitare to cleanup the course, than to make your own herbicide tank mix,” said Adam Manwarren, turf product manager, FMC Professional Solutions. “Solitare delivers fast-acting results on a broad spectrum of grassy and broadleaf weeds in both warm and cool season turf types, all in one easy-to-use product.” While Solitare provides fast control, studies show it delivers 100 percent control in as little as seven days on certain weed species. Solitare reduces weed populations by being absorbed into underground reproductive structures, decreasing seed populations and viability. “This is a unique product in that it truly does decrease the size of weed populations while delivering fast, visible results within days of application,” said Manwarren. “Golf course superintendents have enough to worry about, having Solitare as a key product to rely on definitely makes their job a lot easier.” Designed for use on all cool season and warm season turf types, except St. Augustine grass and Bent grass, Solitare is registered for use on golf course fairways and roughs, as well as  commercial, institutional & residential lawns, athletic fields, sod farms, and other non-crop sites. The product is available in one pound jars with a recommended use of one formulated pound per acre. The expanding FMC turf portfolio also includes products such herbicides as Echelon® for preemergence sedge, crabgrass, and goosegrass control, Dismiss® & Dismiss CA for fast, visible sedge control and Dismiss South for fast, visible sedge control, including purple nutsedge. In addition, QuickSilver® provides silvery thread moss control and Segway® fungicide is designed for Pythium elimination. www.fmcprosolutions.com
