Details

Revolver Herbicide is a post emergent herbicide that selectively removes cool-season grasses from warm-season grasses. It may be used to remove cool-season grasses from bermudagrass greens, teeboxes, collars and approaches surrounding bermudagrass greens. Results are quick — generally apparent within one to two weeks. Can be used safely to control weed grasses on Bermudagrass, Zoysiagrass and Buffalograss.

When can I use Revolver?

Turf managers can use Revolver anytime the temperature is warm enough. If using Revolver as a transition aid, applications are made in the spring. When using it to remove undesirable grasses in actively growing bermudagrass or zoysiagrass, Revolver can be applied anytime the weeds are present. Two or more applications of Revolver six to eight days apart may be needed to control goosegrass.

How fast does Revolver work?

Speed of removal depends on air temperature. Warmer temperatures lead to faster removal. At temperatures of 70 degrees F and higher, removal of undesirable cool-season grasses can take place in one week or less. If temperatures are 60 degrees F. or lower, removal could take two to three weeks or longer. Turf managers are best advised to use Revolver as a transition aid when warm-season grasses are strongly coming out of dormancy. This timing could vary from early March in South Florida to late May in the Carolinas. On the other hand, turf managers can use Revolver to remove volunteer ryegrass – or clumpy rye – whenever the desirable grass is actively growing. It is not advisable to use Revolver during cold periods during the winter.

    Revolver Selective Herbicide

    By Henry on 06/27/2011

    Verified Purchase

    Product is expensive $279 per quart, but effective. Revolver killed 50% of Dallis weed grass infested in Bermuda grass areas. Dosage required 5 ounces per gallon which meant the product volume didn't last very long. Application was made fairly evenly to Dallisgrass. Perhaps some Dallisgrass (regardless of maturity) received more dosage or for whatever reason didn't die.

    Poa Annua vs. Revolver

    By W. on 06/01/2018

    Revolver is the best way I have found to battle Poa Annua in a Zoysia Emerald grass. Have been using Revolver for 3 years and am rating Revolver as #1! Combined with Dimension 2EW Herbicide as the pre-emergent I am totally satisfied even at the rather expensive cost. I use a 25" front throw reel mower and am very particular about the appearance of my lawn, which I planted using sod 6 years ago. My location is Southeast Georgia.

    Did the trick

    By Vols on 05/10/2016

    One application and that ugly poanna has turned yellow. It was taking over our yard! We even applied before the daytime temperature got over 74 degrees...just could not wait to kill that nasty stuff. Yes, the price is high, but it works. The manager of our golf course told us about this product. So thanks to him and Revolver!!

    I used this to kill the Dallis Weed/Grass and this stuff works. My only dislike is the price.

Questions & Answers

Have a question about this product?
  
Q
Revolver Selective Herbicide is said to kill Poa Annua, but will it harm my residential lawn?

I am hoping not to have to Roundup my entire lawn to get rid of Poa annua, it has been gaining ground over the last few years over all of my pre emergence treatment

A

Revolver Selective Herbicide is labeled to be used on Bermudagrass, Zoysiagrass, and Buffalograss in commercial areas only to control Poa annua and should not harm the listed tolerant grass species when used as directed on the product label.

Q
What is the concentration of Revolver per gallon treating tall fescue?
A
You will need to use 0.4fl oz  - 0.8 fl oz per 1,000 sq ft of area that needs to be treated. Use the higher usage rate for hard to kill weeds. The amount of water used to apply Revolver herbicide is not critical, but should be sufficient for uniform coverage of the target area. Calibrate by determining the volume of water required to treat 1,000 square feet. Use this calibration volume to determine the amount of water and Revolver herbicide needed to treat the target area (see the following calibration example). Note: Sprayer calibration (volume of spray needed to treat 1,000 square feet) will vary with each individual operator.
Steps in Calibration:
1. Mark an area of 1,000 square feet (i.e. 20 by 50 feet or 25 by 40 feet).
2. Place the sprayer on a level surface and add water noting the final level of water in the spray tank.
3. Spray the marked area with a sufficient volume of water to provide uniform coverage. Refill the sprayer to the same level as before measuring the amount of water added. The measured water added to the sprayer is the volume needed to cover 1,000 square feet.
4. Determine the application rate (0.4fl oz  - 0.8 fl oz per 1,000 sq ft.) for Revolver from the Recommendations section of this label.
5. To each volume of water used as measured in step 3, add the amount of Revolver as determined in step 4.
Example: If the sprayer uses 1 gallons of water to cover 1,000 square feet and the desired application rate of Revolver is .8 fl oz/1,000 square feet, then you would add .8  fluid ounces of Revolver to every 1 gallon of water to be used."

Q
Will Tenacity harm my bermuda?

I believe I have a bentgrass problem in my bermuda, and it looks like tenacity is the only bentgrass killer. On its label, it doesn't say bermuda is one of its turf grasses. Any help would be great. I have a couple pictures of my specific bentgrass.

A

Tenacity can only be used on bermudagrass that is still dormant when trying to remove weeds or target grasses from it. If the bermuda is only semi dormant you will see whitening and damage to the bermuda. There are a few other potential options for you to remove the bentgrass from your bermuda lawn, though. Drive XLR8 is listed to control creeping bentgrass and has multiple rate options for it in bermuda lawns. You will need to use a Non Ionic Surfactant with the Drive XLR8 to acheive the best results. Revolver Herbicide is specifically labeled to target bentgrass as well in warm season turfs. Bonide Weed Beater Ultra is safe for use on bermuda and other turf species and specifically says to not use it on bentgrass. So while bentgrass is not listed as a target weed it makes it clear using it on bentgrass would be harmful to it.

Q
When and how much irrigation after application?
A
Revolver Selective Herbicide does not require irrigation after application. Be sure you apply the product in an ample amount of water to insure even coating of the leaves of target plants and even distribution over the area to be treated.
