Recognition herbicide controls more than 40 weeds to include all major sedges and kyllingas along with broadleaf weeds like clover and dollarweed.

  • Controls more than 40 varieties of weeds
  • Great for southern grasses such as Bermuda, Zoysia, and St. Augustine without fear of damaging turf
  • Measuring spoon included for easy mixing
  • Covers up to 65,000 square feet

Recognition is a post-emergent herbicide that comes in the form of wettable granules. This means that you mix this weed killer with water to create a liquid spray. It is formulated to control sedges and broadleaf weeds.

Recognition herbicide's party trick is the inclusion of a proprietary safener called metcamifen which allows broadcast applications on sensitive grasses like St. Augustine and Zoysiagrass. The metcamifen in Recognition herbicide allows you to safely control Bermuda grass in St. Augustine when mixed with Fusilade II at higher rates.
