5L Marvel® 175 EC
MARVEL® should be applied to actively growing turf, at least 6 hours before or after mowing. Good mowing management leading up to application is required to achieve a good quality turf surface and to obtain the best results from MARVEL®.
The recommended use rates are designed to give approximately a 20 - 50 % reduction in clippings over a 2 - 6 week period. In practice the amount of growth regulation achieved will vary between situations due to environmental conditions and management practices. To some extent, therefore, application rates will need to be adjusted to match growing conditions, management practices and the amount of growth regulation required by the turf manager. Repeat applications can be made as soon as turf resumes growth or more suppression is required.
Winter Grass (Poa annua) Management
Different grasses vary in their sensitivity to MARVEL®. Since Poa annua is more sensitive to MARVEL® than Bent Grass, MARVEL® can be used to reduce the competitiveness of Poa annua in Bent Grass golf greens. MARVEL® can be integrated into existing Poa annua control programs. Low rates of MARVEL® (that provide growth suppression of Poa annua, but not Bent Grass) applied during peak growth periods may enable a slow transition in the golf green sward composition away from Poa annua and towards a higher percentage of Bent Grass.
An application of MARVEL® to couch will enhance the establishment of cool season turf grasses. MARVEL® is foliarly absorbed, so germination and seedling growth is not affected. Apply MARVEL® before verticutting, scalping, spiking or other similar operations to the couch. Apply MARVEL® 1 - 5 days before seeding.
MARVEL® is an emulsifiable concentrate (EC) with minimal odour as the product does not contain petroleum solvents. MARVEL® mixes completely with water and may be tank mixed with many commonly used fungicides and liquid fertilizers. Add the required quantity of MARVEL® directly to a spray tank containing 2/3 of the required spray volume. Add the rest of the water and ensure the mix is thoroughly agitated before application. MARVEL® can be tank mixed with some formulations of azoxystrobin, chlorothalonil and propiconazole fungicides and trifloxysulfuron sodium herbicide.
