Before Recognition herbicide was available, there were limited options for removing Bermudagrass without injuring your Zoysia or St. Augustine lawn in the process.

Fusilade II produced limited results when applied at the rates deemed safe for Zoysia. The proprietary safener in Recognition called metcamifen is what makes it possible to remove Bermudagrass from Zoysia, St. Augustine and Kikuyugrass. It allows you to use Fusilade II at higher rates without causing injury.

We're excited to make this convenient kit available to those of you that have been fighting Bermuda for years. See the results from this kit here.
