Dow debuts new insecticide for ABW control

September 9, 2016

matchpoint_us_01_4cDow AgroSciences introduces MatchPoint insecticide, the latest innovation in annual bluegrass weevil (ABW) larvae control. With the power of spinosad and a new lignin technology, MatchPoint gives sports turf managers powerful ABW control with convenient application flexibility. This advanced formulation enhances photostability, providing more consistent control, Dow said.

MatchPoint controls the 1st and 2nd instars in the plant, making it an ideal choice for the first 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.

“Controlling annual bluegrass weevil is challenging enough for turf professionals in the Northeast,” says Maureen Clark, product manager with Dow AgroSciences Turf & Ornamental. “MatchPoint gives them more freedom to make applications during a time that works for their schedule.”

MatchPoint works through contact and ingestion and provides quick knockdown with good residual. In addition to ABW, MatchPoint controls armyworms, black turfgrass ataenius, cutworms, fleas and sod webworms. For more information, visit DowProvesIt.com.
