Manuscript Herbicide is a systemic, post-emergence herbicide that effectively controls mature, unwanted grassy weeds in bermudagrass, zoysiagrass and St. Augustinegrass. it features an advanced form of ACCase mode of action that provides a unique solution for tough weeds like tropical signalgrass, large and smooth crabgrass, bull paspalum, dallisgrass, bahiagrass, seashore paspalum, tropical carpetgrass, torpedograss and more in certain warm-season grasses on golf courses, sod farms, residential and commercial lawns and sports turf. It is quickly absorbed by the foliage and translocated to the growing points of stems and leaves. This formula offers excellent flexibility that lets you treat grassy weeds regardless of growth stage, including large, mature weeds. It can be utilized during the summer heat when target turfgrass is actively growing, and it is enriched with a built-in, proprietary safener to improve performance and turf safety.
Can only be purchased by the case. Each case comes with three 1 gallon jugs of Manuscript Herbicide and three 0.67 gallon jugs of Adigor Surfactant.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Prior to using Manuscript, ensure that the spray tank, lines and screens, and filters have been thoroughly cleaned.
Ground Application Equipment
Use spray nozzles that are uniformly spaced and of the same size to provide accurate and uniform application. Use spray nozzles that provide medium droplets. To help ensure accuracy, calibrate sprayer at the beginning of the season before use and recalibrate frequently. Use a minimum of 20 gallons of water per acre.
Use a pump with capacity to: (1) maintain 35-40 psi pressure at nozzles and (2) provide sufficient agitation within the tank to keep product in suspension. Lower pressures may be used with extended range or drift reduction flat fan nozzles. A centrifugal pump that provides shear action for dispersing and mixing the product is recommended. Use a pump that provides a minimum of 20 gallons per minute per 100 gallon tank size circulated through a correctly positioned sparger tube or jet agitators. If jet agitators are used, align at least 2 agitators on the bottom of the tank pointing toward each end. Agitation during both mixing and application is essential.
Place screens or strainers that are 16-mesh or coarser on the suction side of the pump. Do not place a screen in the recirculation line unless a roller or piston pump is used for spraying the solution. Use 50-mesh or coarser screens between the pump and boom, and when required, at the nozzles. Check nozzle manufacturer’s recommendations. Good coverage with the spray mixture is essential for optimum weed control results. Observe sprayer nozzles frequently during the spraying operation to ensure that the spray pattern is uniform. Avoid large spray overlaps that result in excessive rates in the overlap areas. Also, avoid application under conditions when uniform coverage cannot be obtained or when spray drift may occur (see section titled SPRAY DRIFT MANAGEMENT). For broadcast application, use a boom height that does not exceed 24 inches above the leaf blades of the turfgrass stand.
Avoid all direct or indirect contact (such as spray drift) of this product with ornamental plants since injury may occur. Always follow the SPRAY DRIFT MANAGEMENT and the Instructions for Cleaning Spray Equipment after Application sections of this label.
Rainfastness: Manuscript is rainfast within 1 hour after application.
Instructions for Cleaning Spray Equipment after Application
Thoroughly clean application equipment immediately after spraying Manuscript. Ensure that all traces of the product are removed. The following directions are provided:
PRODUCT USE RATES
Apply in a minimum water volume of 20 gallons per acre.
Spot Treatment Rate
Apply as a spot treatment to control individual weeds and/or small areas of weeds when weed pressure is high. To make a spot treatment, mix 9.6 fl oz of Manuscript in a minimum of 20 gallons of water per acre and add the appropriate spray adjuvant(s). Spray weeds until wet, but avoid run-off of spray solution and over-application. Spot treatments are likely to cause yellowing and growth regulatory effects to the turfgrass.
Weeds Controlled In Bermudagrass And Zoysiagrass
For control of tropical signalgrass (Urochloa subquadripara), tropical carpetgrass (Axonopus compressus), large crabgrass (Digitaria sanguinalis), smooth crabgrass (Digitaria ischaemum), bahiagrass (Paspalum notatum), dallisgrass (Paspalum dilatatum), canoe grass (Paspalum acuminatum) and suppression of torpedograss (Panicum repens) and suppression of seashore paspalum (Paspalum vaginatum), apply Manuscript in a program approach with Monument 75WG. Initiate treatments early to mid-summer when weeds are actively growing and not under stress. Spot treatments are recommended to control individual weeds or small areas when weed pressure is high.
Manuscript must be applied in combination with Adigor spray surfactant.
Manuscript provides optimum control when applied in the late summer/early fall when dallisgrass is actively growing and not under drought stress. Applications outside the ideal timing will only provide dallisgrass suppression.
For control of bull paspalum (Paspalum boscianum) and thin leaf paspalum (Paspalum setaceum) apply:
Weeds Controlled in St. Augustinegrass (Sod Production Only)
For control of tropical signalgrass (Urochloa subquadripara), tropical carpetgrass (Axonopus compressus), large crabgrass (Digitaria sanguinalis), smooth crabgrass (Digitaria ischaemum), bahiagrass (Paspalum notatum), canoe grass (Paspalum acuminatum), dallisgrass (Paspalum dilatatum), bull paspalum (Paspalum boscianum) and thin leaf paspalum (Paspalum setaceum) and suppression of torpedograss (Panicum repens) and suppression of seashore paspalum (Paspalum vaginatum), apply spot treatments of Manuscript to small areas of heavy weed infestation. To make a spot treatment, mix 9.6 fl oz of Manuscript in a minimum of 20 gallons of water per acre and add the appropriate spray adjuvant(s). Spray weeds until wet, but avoid run-off of spray solution and over-application. Spot treatments are likely to cause yellowing and growth regulatory effects to the turfgrass.
For weed control in St. Augustinegrass sod, Manuscript must be applied in combination with Adigor spray surfactant.
Manuscript requires a spray adjuvant. For optimum weed control, use the spray adjuvant(s) as specified in the ‘WEEDS CONTROLLED’ section of this label.
Always read and follow the spray adjuvant label directions prior to use and observe all precautions, mixing and application instructions.

The rate for Manuscript Herbicide will depend on how many treatments you want to make per year. For 2 treatments done 14-21 days apart you will use 9.6 oz to an acre. For 1 treatment per year you will mix 19.2 oz per acre. These acre rates are typically mixed at 20 to 100 gallons of water. For the case of Manuscript you will receive 3 gallons of the product will a total of 384 oz, so if you apply at the 19.2 oz per acre for one treatment, the 3 gallons will cover 20 acres.
Each Manuscript Herbicide 1 gallon jug will cover 6,600 to 13,300 square feet depending at what rate it is applied. Per the Product Use Rate chart on page 8 of the product label, mix at 9.6 oz to 19.2 oz per acre in a minimum water volume of 20 gallons per acre. Do not exceed a maxium of 19.2 oz per acre per calendar year. Please refer to the Product Use Rate Chart on page 8 of the product label for more information.
