Celero herbicide is a selective, post-emergence herbicide for control of sedges including kyllinga in established residential and commercial turfgrass, golf courses and sod farms. Imazosulfuron, the active ingredient in Celero, is a systemic sulfonylurea (SU) herbicide that translocates down to the roots to deliver superior sedge control. Labeled for both broadcast and spot treatment in cool- and warm-season turf, Celero is the ideal solution for difficult-to-manage sedges.


Aloft insecticide delivers preventive and curative control to combat insects fast. Prevent troublesome turfgrass insects and surface-feeders – including white grubs – with a single early treatment or knock down existing pests with flexible application options from April to September. Plus, Aloft is EPA approved for fire ant control and is effective in attacking Red Imported Fire Ants.

Escalade® 2
Nothing knocks down unsightly weeds like Escalade 2 herbicide. Escalade 2 combines three powerful active ingredients to control more than 240 broadleaf weeds. It starts working quickly to devastate weeds and help reduce callbacks. Plus, Escalade 2 can be tank-mixed with most liquid fertilizers and iron.

Don’t settle for insecticides that give up on control early. Get the best control and the longest-lasting residual out there with Arena® insecticide. Arena works as both a preventive and a curative, for outstanding control of chinch bugs, white grubs and a broad spectrum of other turf and ornamental pests with a single application.
