SureGuard® SC Herbicide for Turf

REDUCE LABOR AND COSTS WITH THE LONGEST RESIDUAL CONTROL.

SAVE TIME AND MONEY, GAIN FLEXIBILITY AND OPTIONS. SureGuard® SC Herbicide delivers the longest pre-emerge residual control of grass and broadleaf weeds – often 8 months or more – saving time and costs associated with re-application. SureGuard SC also takes down post-emerge weeds up to 2” in height for a wider application window. For powerful post-emerge knockdown with lasting residual control, SureGuard SC is compatible with non-selective herbicides like glyphosate and glufosinate (Cheetah® Pro). The patent-pending liquid formulation is easy to mix, apply and clean with no staining, no odor, or volatility concerns. SureGuard SC is now approved for aquatic and bare ground use sites in addition to landscapes and dormant Bermudagrass.

 SAVE TIME, MONEY AND LABOR 

  • Apply once: longest residual pre-emerge control, often 8 months or more 
  • Easy mix, apply and clean liquid formulation saves time 
  • Non-staining spray formulation with no color, odor, off-target movement or volatility concerns 
  • Reduce customer call-backs with lasting broad-spectrum control 

 GAIN FLEXIBILITY AND OPTIONS 

  • Wider application window: unlike the competition, SureGuard SC also controls post-emerge weeds up to 2” – if timing is off, emerged weeds are still controlled 
  • One product for many uses: landscapes, bare ground, aquatics, cracks and crevices, and dormant Bermudagrass 
  • Mix with glyphosate or glufosinate for fast and effective knockdown with longest residual, even on resistant weeds 

GAIN FLEXIBILITY: A WIDER APPLICATION WINDOW 

SureGuard® SC offers a significant advantage over the competition, it controls pre-emerge weeds as well as emerged weeds up to 2” high. When application timing is running a little behind, rest assured that both pre- and post-emerge weeds are captured with SureGuard SC . 

PRE-EMERGE CONTROL 

Make application prior to weed emerge. Do not apply over-the-top of emerged or actively growing ornamentals. Moisture is needed to move SureGuard SC into the soil. Dry weather following application may reduce effectiveness. However, when adequate moisture is received after dry conditions, susceptible germinating weeds will be controlled. 

POST-EMERGE CONTROL 

For best results, apply to actively growing weeds less than 2” in height. For most effective post-emerge weed control, apply with a surfactant under sunny conditions at temperatures above 65°F. SureGuard SC is rainfast in 1 hour, do not apply if rain is expected within 1 hour.


GAIN OPTIONS: ONE PRODUCT FOR MANY USES 

SureGuard SC is labeled for use on many sites. Take care of aquatics, bare grounds, landscape and container ornamentals, dormant Bermuda and more. 

AQUATIC WEED CONTROL 

Control floating or emerged weeds using surface applications or floating and submersed weeds using subsurface applications. For most effective control, apply to actively growing weeds in water with a pH of less than 8.5. 

BARE GROUND NON-CROP AREAS 

Use for non-selective vegetation control to maintain bare ground non-crop areas. Do not apply when weather conditions favor spray drift from treated areas. 

TURF AND ORNAMENTAL SITES 

Keep areas in and around woody shrubs, deciduous trees, and conifers weed free with broad-spectrum pre- and early post-emerge control. Do not apply to stressed plants. 

CONTAINER- AND FIELD-GROWN DECIDUOUS TREES AND CONIFERS 

Apply as single or split applications to established trees. Do not apply to trees or transplants less than 1 year. May apply over the top only if bud break has not occurred or plants are hardened off. 

ESTABLISHED WOODY LANDSCAPE ORNAMENTALS 

Apply as directed sprays around well established woody shrubs and trees. Do not apply around landscape ornamentals for at least 30 days after transplant, or at least 2 months before ornamentals will be planted.
