OHP has introduced Fuerte Herbicide, a pre-emergent combination granular product that controls broadleaf and grassy weeds in field, container, and landscape ornamentals.
Fuerte provides residual weed control of many common and difficult-to-control weeds such as oxalis, spurge, and elicpta on trees, shrubs, conifers and landscape ornamentals without harming desirable plant material.
"The dual active ingredients in Fuerte are natural partners that have a proven track record for excellent weed control and overall plant tolerance,” says Dave Barcel, OHP senior technical manager. "Fuerte offers the strength needed for weed control in the tough summer months.”
The two active ingredients – flumioxazin and prodiamine – are widely known and used by nurseryman throughout the U.S. Fuerte marks the first combination of flumioxazin and prodiamine.
"Flumioxazin is active on many broadleaf weeds and some grasses. Prodiamine is active on many grassy weeds and some broadleaf weeds. It's a great fit,” says Barcel.
Formulated on an engineered granule, Fuerte produces virtually no dust and low odor, resulting in improved worker safety and ease of application, according to the company.
"We listened to our nursery customers and they told us this combination of active ingredients is desirable,” says Dan Stahl, OHP vice president and general manager. "We're pleased to be able to respond to our customers.”
