By |  December 11, 2019 0 Comments

Moghu Research Center (Moghu) announced the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) granted an unconditional registration of PoaCure on Dec. 9.

PoaCure is a pre- and post-emergence grass herbicide for selective control of annual bluegrass and roughstalk bluegrass in golf course turf, including creeping bentgrass putting greens.

PoaCure is a new turf herbicide based on the active ingredient Methiozolin. The EPA granted registrations of Methiozolin and two formulations of PoaCure. The approval covers golf courses only, but Moghu plans to expand the uses to sports turfs and sod in the future.

Moghu started applying for state registrations and expects registrations in most states will be available before April 2020. The state registration statuses will be posted at www.poacure.com, which opens in Jan. 2020.

PoaCure will be manufactured in South Korea and directly distributed to the U.S. golf courses by Moghu USA through www.poacure.com (opens Jan. 2020).

PoaCure will be packed in 16-fl-oz bottles. The tentative price is $250/bottle and $5,000/a box of 20 bottles. One bottle is good for six applications on ~4,400-sq.-ft. putting greens, while a box is good for six applications on 2.1 acres of putting greens, or four applications on 1.6 acres of green surrounds/fairways.
