How To Use Fusilade II Herbicide

Fusilade II herbicide should be applied to problem areas while the undesired vegetation is still young and robust, ideally before it reaches the growth phases specified on the label.

When used as directed, Fusilade II herbicide is harmless to humans, animals, and the environment. When handling Fusilade II, always put on the necessary protective gear.

Using Fusilade II at least an hour before precipitation is guaranteed to have the desired effect. Weed management may be compromised or ineffective if applied to grass that is already under stress from factors such as drought, heat, lack of nutrients in the soil, or mechanical or chemical harm.

A wide range of flowering plants is a suitable candidate for treatment with Fusilade II. If you want to make sure your plants won’t get harmed, check the label first.

Syngenta’s Fusilade II Herbicide is a post-emergent, selective herbicide for controlling annual and perennial grassy weeds in turf and ornamental settings.

The active element in Fusilade II, fluazifop, works quickly and is safe for use around landscaping plants. As a systemic herbicide, it penetrates the plant’s leaves before spreading to the roots.

When administered at lower concentrations, it can also be used to eradicate Bermuda grass from tall fescue and zoysia grass. After just one hour, Fusilade II is waterproof.

Proper application can prevent bermudagrass from returning to areas previously planted with tall fescue or zoysiagrass. Fusilade II is great for eliminating weeds in residential and golf course settings.

How To Use Fusilade II Herbicide

  • Find out how much Fusilade II you’ll need by measuring the area that needs treating. Simply multiply the length by the width to get the total square footage of the area you want to cover.
    Fusilade II can treat 1,000 square feet of landscape or ornamental plants with about 0.4 to 0.6 fluid ounces per gallon of water.
    For a 3,000-square-foot treatment area, for instance, you would use between 1.2 and 1.8 fluid ounces per 3 gallons of water.
  • Start by pouring a half gallon of water into your handheld pump sprayer for use in your general-purpose applications.
    Fusilade II should be added to the spray tank at a rate of 0.4 to 0.6 oz per gallon, depending on the virulence of the plants to be eradicated.
    A nonionic surfactant at the rate of 1/2 pt per 25 gallons is recommended for spraying solely ornamentals. Mix thoroughly by shaking the spray tank, then fill the sprayer to the top with water.
  • The Fusilade II formulation should be sprayed on the designated lawn and landscaping areas indicated on the product packaging. Wet down, but don’t let it run off with a heavy spray. To ensure uniform coverage, spray in a fan pattern.
