Quicksilver T&O Herbicide, Different because it works.
QuickSilver T&O Herbicide is a contact herbicide with little or no residual activity that provides selective postemergence control of silvery thread moss (Bryum argenteum) in turfgrass. The active ingredient of QuickSilver Herbicide is carfentrazone-ethyl. It is an aryl triazolinone herbicide, which interrupts chlorophyll synthesis and produces metabolic byproducts that disrupt plant cell membranes. This process only occurs in susceptible green plants in the presence of light.
When it comes to silvery thread moss control, nothing works on greens and tees quite like QuickSilver T&O Herbicide. It’s so effective, researchers at North Carolina State University discovered that QuickSilver controlled 90% of moss in just two applications. And unlike other products where temperature can significantly impact efficacy, QuickSilver is effective in both cool and warm temperatures, ensuring year-round moss control as needed.
QuickSilver T&O Herbicide works by effectively inhibiting a key enzyme in moss chlorophyll production. What’s more, QuickSilver has been carefully formulated to be gentle on your turf. QuickSilver won’t harm creeping bentgrass greens and tees. In a recent evaluation by 50 golf courses in North Carolina, none reported any phytotoxicity issues, and research by the University of Tennessee showed QuickSilver to be highly tolerable.
Bring bentgrass back—fast.
QuickSilver T&O Herbicide is unique in that it leaves minimal residue following application. This allows for fast reestablishment of bentgrass, enabling you to quickly replant and break the moss opportunity cycle. With other products, you’d have to wait months before reseeding, leaving unsightly bald spots and providing an opportunity for moss to reestablish in the voids.
