Weeds aren't biased and don't usually prefer one area over another. They will grow anywhere, anytime and ruin the look of ornamental turfgrass. Tenacity is a systemic herbicide used for pre- and postemergent weeds. It contains a potent ingredient for controlling dozens of unwanted grassy weeds, making it an effective weed killer for recreational sites. Whether it's clover or crabgrass, Tenacity provides excellent weed control.
How Tenacity Herbicide Works
Tenacity herbicide contains mesotrione as the active ingredient. It acts as an enzyme inhibitor and blocks certain processes from occurring in the target weeds. Without these processes, the weeds are unable to grow properly and will die. It controls pre-emergent weeds below the soil and is useful for knocking down weeds aboveground. However, it's recommended to use a nonionic surfactant to control postemergent weeds for the best results.
Where to Use Tenacity
Use Tenacity herbicide to kill a variety of weeds in residential and commercial sites. It's not recommended to use Tenacity on home lawns unless it's during yard renovation or before reseeding. It may cause whitening of some turfgrass. It's ideal for use on noncrop sites where weeds can ruin the look of ornamental turfgrass, such as golf courses and athletic fields. Apply it to the turfgrass in parks and playgrounds, as well as on sod farms and airports. It can also be used to keep the grounds in cemeteries free of nuisance weeds.
Tenacity herbicide kills and controls numerous unwanted grassy and broadleaf weeds in lawns and landscapes. It eliminates barnyardgrass and carpetweed, as well as dandelion and clover patches. It's effective at killing foxtail and other hard-to-control weeds like goosegrass. Use it to control henbit and thistle, as well as smooth and large crabgrass. Tenacity has a long list of labeled weeds, from oxalis and smartweed to swinecress and wild carrot.

Because it can be used for pre- and postemergent weed control, Tenacity herbicide is a solid choice for lawn care programs.
