Fuerte Ornamenal Herbicide is a granular pre-emergent herbicide used to control weeds in container, field, and landscape ornamentals, Christmas tree and conifer farms, grounds maintenance, and other listed non-cropland areas. It contains the active ingredients prodiamine and flumioxazin on the unique, low-dust Verge granule. Fuerte controls a wide range of both grassy and broadleaf weeds by creating a soil barrier that remains active for several months. It prevents the growth and development of newly germinated weeds but does not control established weeds. Fuerte should be watered in with ½ in. of irrigation soon after application, or apply when rain is in the forecast.
