Octane is a simple, economical solution to faster weed control. Best applied on a sunny day, weeds sprayed with Octane show visual herbicidal symptoms within 24-48 hours. Emerged weeds are quickly killed, helping in timely tournament prep or instant satisfaction by membership and greens committees. Octane is also safe to use on recently seeded turf.

Silvery Thread Moss Control
A new option for silvery thread moss control
Octane is now registered for silvery thread moss control. With a combination of efficacy, turf safety, and value, Octane is your go-to solution for silvery thread moss control.
- Applications should be made at 2 to 6.8 fl. oz./acre
- Repeat applications are recommended for complete control at a minimum 14-day interval
- Research has demonstrated Octane can be applied to creeping bentgrass putting greens at 6.8 fl. oz./acre without concern for turf injury
Octane 4 fl oz/A 10 days
Applied Alone. For Best Results:
- Apply Octane at rates of 1 to 4 fl. oz./acre for control of seedling, non-mature winter and summer annual weeds and/or for temporary burndown of weeds listed on Control Spectrum page.
- Tank-mixing Octane with other broadleaf herbicides may be needed for control of larger winter and summer annual weeds.
Applied in Tank-mix. For Best Results:
- Apply Octane at rates of 0.7 to 1.5 fl. oz./acre in tank-mix combinations with herbicides registered for use such as amines, esters, and salts of 2,4-D, chloroprop, dicamba, mecoprop, triclopyr, fluroxypyr, and various combinations of these products for control of annual weeds and perennial weeds
- Residual, long-term control of the target weeds is as defined by labeling of the companion product
- For tank-mixing with herbicides, always read and follow the product label directions
Spray Volume Notes:
- Octane is a contact herbicide that causes herbicidal symptoms only to plant parts that come into contact with spray applications
- Proper spray volume and uniform coverage are important to maximize efficacy of Octane
- Uniform sprays should be applied at 20 to 200 gal per acre (0.5 to 4.5 gal. per 1000 sq. ft.)
- Higher spray volumes should be used to target whole weed population and/or weeds contained in dense turfgrass canopies
Use of Adjuvants Notes:
- Addition of surfactants (spreaders/stickers) to the spray solution will improve efficacy and contact activity of Octane
- Follow manufacturer’s use rates for specific sites
