PHILADELPHIA, Pa. – Dismiss herbicide is now labeled for use as selective weed control in containers, around field-grown ornamentals or in landscape beds, FMC Professional Solutions recently announced. When applied as a directed spray around the base of the plant (do not spray over the top), the product provides control of yellow nutsedge, purple nutsedge and green kyllinga in just 24 to 48 hours.
Dismiss attacks weeds on the surface through foliar contact, but also works through root uptake to control sedge tubers underground. As a result, nursery and landscape professionals will see a noticeable reduction in new sedge populations the following season.
Dismiss may be used in established container plants, around field-grown ornamentals or in landscape beds, as well as around newly transplanted containers or field-grown ornamentals after the plants have formed roots and are well-established.
