Slender Speedwell has been added to the list of stubborn weeds, effectively controlled by Headland's selective herbicide, Cabadex.
Known for its ability to control difficult species including Yarrow, Daisy and White Clover on both established and young turf, successful trials have led to label approval for Slender Speedwell, often, with its invasive and dominating characteristics the curse of groundsmen and greenkeepers alike.
Combined leaf and root uptake of the active ingredients Florasulam and Fluroxypyr means that Cabadex can be effectively and safely applied to young turf at, or after the second leaf stage (approximately eight weeks after sowing) and allows re-seeding just four weeks after application.
The herbicide carries a low application rate of two litres per hectare, which, according to Headland's Sales and Marketing Director Andy Russell, means that Cabadex inputs some of the lowest levels of active ingredients in the market. "The result," he says "is a cost effective, environmentally sensitive option that can be used in a wide variety of turf situations including application on immature turf areas."
Cabadex is available in the Pitchcare Shop
