Rescue Herbicide - MAPP no. 14518
Active Ingredients: 45.00 g / l pinoxaden.
RESCUE is a highly selective grass herbicide, for the removal of Ryegrass whilst leaving fine turf grasses unaffected. RESCUE herbicide is approved for use on bowling greens and areas on golf courses such as greens, tees, fairways, approaches, semi-rough and rough.
Removal of Ryegrass infestation from greens can achieve more consistent ball roll and a better quality fine turf surface. On fairways, Ryegrass control can improve both the playability and visual appearance of the course, as well and helping to achieve a clean finish from mowing. In rough areas thinning out dense Ryegrass makes it easier to locate balls and avoid slow play. Research also shows the potential to of RESCUE herbicide to enhance the environmental value of out-of-play rough areas, by removing unwanted ryegrass and creating a habitat where wildflowers and biodiversity can thrive.
Rescue herbicide has been extensively trialled by green keepers across the UK during 2008 & 2009 - successfully controlling Ryegrass on links, heathland and parkland courses. The trialists have also noted useful control of other grass coarse grass weeds, including Yorkshire Fog and Purple Moor-grass.
Following extensive trials by STRI, UK golf course managers are the first in the world to receive approval for the use of RESCUE herbicide.
RESCUE herbicide contains 45 g/l (4.59% w/w) pinoxaden and 11.25 g/l (1.15% w/w) cloquintocet-mexyl as an emulsifiable concentrate.
Pinoxaden is an entirely new active ingredient for the turf industry, from the new class of 'den' herbicide technology.
RESCUE herbicide is rapidly taken up into the plant and quickly moves through the plant to leaf tip and roots.
RESCUE herbicide targets specific enzymes responsible for cell division, stopping the growth of susceptible plants and quickly leading to leaf die back. The growth enzyme in Ryegrass is especially susceptible to the effects of pinoxaden, whilst Poa annua, for example, is resistent to the effects. With Fescue grasses the fine leaf architecture limits the uptake of the active ingredient, so Fescues are unaffected by RESCUE herbicide application at the recommneded rates. Browntop or Colonial Bentgrass has, occasionally, shown signs of slight discolouration following application, but quickly recovers in good growing conditions.
