Why should a customer consider Tribute Total?
Tribute Total provides broad spectrum control in one complete solution, including dallisgrass, grassy weeds, sedges and many broadleaf weeds.
How does Tribute Total work?
After application, Tribute Total is readily absorbed by the foliage and translocated to the site of action in the growing points of the susceptible plant (meristematic regions). It inhibits the enzyme acetolactate synthase, which is critical in a plant’s production of three key amino acids. The first visible symptoms are stunting of growth and yellowing or reddening of leaves, followed by death of the plant.
What types of turfgrass will be labeled for use with Tribute Total?
Bermudagrass (Common, Tifway 419, Tifsport, Vamont, Tifgreen 328) will be labeled for use with Tribute Total when introduced in 2012. Additional turfgrasses are also being evaluated for future expanded uses.
Do adjuvants improve the efficacy of Tribute Total?
Tribute Total requires a spray adjuvant. For most weeds, a non-ionic surfactant can be used, but for certain weeds the addition of methylated seed oil and also ammonium sulfate are suggested.
