New insecticide from Dow offers solution for ABW larvae control

By |  May 26, 2017 0 Comments

Dow MatchPointDow AgroSciences introduced MatchPoint insecticide, its latest innovation in Annual bluegrass weevil (ABW) larvae control.

ABW continues to expand its range of impact, causing severe damage to tees, greens, fairways and collars. With the power of spinosad and a new lignin technology, MatchPoint gives golf course superintendents and sports turf managers powerful control with convenient application flexibility.

MatchPoint controls the 1st and 2nd instars in the plant, making it an ideal choice for the first larval application in any rotation program. When applied according to label directions, MatchPoint will control up to the 5th instar and will stop ABW feeding immediately, the company said.

“MatchPoint insecticide is another option for the golf course superintendent toolbox,” says Maureen Clark, product manager with Dow AgroSciences Turf & Ornamental. “This advanced formulation offers more consistent control and gives them the freedom to make applications during a time that works for their schedule.”

MatchPoint insecticide can be applied at any point during the day and watering can be delayed up to 24 hours after an application. In addition to ABW, MatchPoint controls armyworm, black turfgrass ataenius (adults), cutworm and sod webworm. For more information, visit
