Tribute effectively controls weeds such as Crowsfootgrass; Ryegrass; Wintergrass; and now with new label extensions, is registered to control 3 of the most difficult to control weeds: Goose grass (Eleusine tristachya); Paspalum (Paspalum dilatatum); and suppression of Kikuyu (Pennisetum clandestinum). Research continues into the potential of Tribute for the control of other turf weeds, updates on this can be found at www.bayeramplifyturf.com.au.

David Phillips, Grounds Manager at Ashgrove Sports Ground recently told Bayer “With over 2500 cricket and rugby members on the grounds, largest rugby club in Australia and also largest cricket club in the world, we are constantly under high weed pressure with Crowsfoot. Two years ago I decided to give Tribute a go on our Number 1 rugby field. Wow! The results we’re amazing! The best herbicide on the market and as an added bonus it kills the dreaded wire grass! Crowsfoot and wire grass completely wiped out following label rates 2lt/ha 14 days apart. This herbicide is a game changer in the turf industry! I cannot live without it now, Tribute is always in my kit”, David added.
