Better Broad-Spectrum Control For Landscape Ornamentals
FreeHand 1.75G herbicide introduces a new active ingredient for use in landscape ornamentals - dimethenamid-P - combined with pendimethalin. This unique combination makes FreeHand 1.75G herbicide the perfect tool for preemergent weed control of annual grasses, susceptible sedge species and many small-seeded broadleaf weeds. FreeHand 1.75G herbicide:
- Combines two active ingredients for a broader range of control.
- Delivers excellent residual control in container medium, stopping weeds as they germinate.
- Offers a wide range of plant species tolerance and use sites.
- Provides exceptional rate flexibility.
FreeHand 1.75G herbicide effectively controls:
- American burnweed*
- Annual bluegrass
- Annual kyllinga spp.*
- Crabgrass spp.
- Italian ryegrass
- Lambsquarters spp.
- Mayweed chamomile
- Nightshade spp.
- Panicum spp.
- Rice flatsedge
- Smartweed spp.
- Spurge spp.
- Willowherb spp.
- Woodsorrel (Oxalis spp.)
- Yellow nutsedge
Weeds listed above can be controlled when FreeHand 1.75G herbicide is applied at rate ranges of 100-200 lbs as listed on the product label. Higher rates will control a greater number of species and provide longer residual per application.

Where To Use FreeHand 1.75G Herbicide
FreeHand 1.75G herbicide is labeled for use in landscape ornamentals in maintained areas (residential and commercial) and general grounds maintenance in specified noncrop areas, container, liner and field commercial nurseries, and Christmas tree and other forest tree nurseries. Refer to product label for additional information.
Keys to Success
Uniform coverage prior to weed germination and emergence ensures optimal weed control. Application to dry foliage is recommended.
Efficacy will be improved if application is followed by one-half inch of irrigation or equivalent in rainfall. Use lowest label rate and avoid overlap on grower-identified sensitive plant species or as stated on label. To assure good product stewardship and resistance management for weed species shifts, use this product in rotation with other ornamental registered products within the landscape program. If desired, however, a sequential application of FreeHand 1.75G herbicide can be reapplied following 8 weeks, with no greater than 400 lbs of product at any application.
