Spray Preparation and Tank Mixtures:

Avenue South Broadleaf Herbicide for Turfgrass is a water-based formulation intended for dilution with water. In certain applications, liquid fertilizer may replace part of the water as a diluent.

Mixing with Water:

Add one-half the required amount of water to the spray tank, then add Avenue South Broadleaf Herbicide for Turfgrass Herbicide slowly with agitation, and complete filling the tank with water. Mix thoroughly and continue agitation while spraying.

When this product is left standing for extended periods of time, re-agitate to assure uniformity of the spray mixture.

Mixing with Liquid Fertilizers:

Use suitable sources and rates of fertilizer based upon guidance of your fertilizer supplier or State Extension Service Specialist.

Verify physical compatibility with a jar test: Always perform a jar test for compatibility before large scale mixing. The jar test can be conducted by mixing all components in a small container in proportionate quantities. If the mixture separates after standing and can be mixed readily by shaking, then the mixture can be used and applied with spray equipment providing continuous agitation. If large flakes, sludge, gels or other precipitates form, r if a separate oily layer or oil globules appear, then the herbicide and the liquid fertilizer must not be prepared as a tank mixture.

Liquid fertilizers are either solutions (true fluids) or suspensions. Physical compatibility of this product is adequate with liquid nitrogen solutions. Mixing this product with suspensions or N-P-K solutions may not be satisfactory (may be marginal) without pre-mixing this product with water. Pre-mixing this product with 2 parts water will ensure that the emulsifiers are activated enabling the herbicide to be suspended in the fertilizer.

Adjuvants and Spray Additives:

Adjuvants (such as surfactants, spreaders, spreader-stickers, spray thickeners, foaming agents, activators, detergents, and drift reducing agents) combined with this product can damage the leaf tissue of turfgrass. If any discoloration or cosmetic effects are objectionable or would be unacceptable, then adjuvants(s) combined with Avenue South Broadleaf Herbicide for Turfgrass would not be advised. Do not use adjuvants and spray additive tank-mix combinations, unless your experience indicates that the tank mixture will not result in turf injury.

Ground Equipment:

Spray Distribution: The accuracy and uniformity of the herbicide distribution is the sole responsibility of the applicator. Power sprayers fitted with a boom or spray wand/gun may be used for broadcast applications and spot treatments. For best spray distribution and coverage, select a spray volume and delivery system that will ensure accurate and uniform coverage. Boom sprayers equipped with appropriate nozzles and screens are suitable for broadcast applications.

This product may cause injury to susceptible/non-target plants at the use site by contacting foliage, stems, or roots. To prevent injury to susceptible crops and other desirable broadleaf plants including but not limited to cotton, legumes, tobacco, tomatoes, garden/vegetable crops, and ornamentals (flowers, trees, and shrubs) avoid contact with the spray solution, spray droplets, and spray mist (fine droplets). Do not apply when conditions are conducive to spray drift from the use site to untreated areas.

Usb spray volumes of 3 to 175 gallons per acre with spray pressures adjusted to 20 to 40 psi (except when applying this product to St. Augustinegrass, use spray volumes of 40 to 175 gallons per acre). Do not apply with high pressure equipment, Use higher spray volumes for dense weed populations.

Calibration and proper application are essential when using this product.

  • Avoid spray overlaps with spray equipment.
  • Over-application or rates above those on this labeling can cause turf injury.
  • Hand-held technique: Spray wands fitted with flat fan nozzles should not be waved in a back-and-forth motion, or in a side-to-side motion, or in a swinging arm motion. Instead, the flat fan nozzle should be held stationary at the proper height. Side-to-side motion results in uneven coverage. To avoid excessive spray pattern overlaps, a spray colorant may be used.

Hand operated sprayers including backpack sprayers, compression sprayers, and knapsack sprayers are appropriate for small turfgrass areas.

After using this product, clean sprayer with soap or detergent and water, or an approved spray tank cleaner and rinse thoroughly before applying other pesticides.

Q
What is the difference between Avenue South Broadleaf Herbicide for Turfgrass and Speedzone Lawn Weed Killer Concentrate?
A

There are a few differences between Avenue South Broadleaf Herbicide for Turfgrass and SpeedZone Lawn Weed Killer Concentrate, the first being the active ingredients. Avenue South contains 2,4-D - 7.28% Dicamba - 2.06% Penoxsulam - 0.70% Sulfentrazone - 0.70%. SpeedZone contains 2,4-D, 2-ethylhexyl ester 28.57?rfentrazone-ethyl 0.62% Dicamba 1.71% Mecoprop-P 5.88%. Also, each product is labeled to be used on specific grass species. Avenue South can safely be applied to warm-season grasses like St. Augustine, including Floratam, while SpeedZone is not. Be sure to look at the product labels to see which one would best suit your needs.

Q
What is the difference between Avenue South Broadleaf Herbicide for Turfgrass and Speedzone Herbicide?

Which is better

A

Speedzone Herbicide and Avenue South Herbicide have different formulations and some different active ingredients, primarily since Speedzone cannot be used on some warm-season turfgrasses such as St. Augustine. If you are in a southern state with a warm-season grass, then we recommend using Avenue South instead for listed broadleaf weeds since it is much safer on those more sensitive grasses. Avenue South has limited residual activity as well. Please refer to the product labels for complete instructions.
