View the Labels/SDS information for Manuscript Herbicide.
Manuscript® herbicide is a highly active herbicide that controls mature, grassy weeds in certain warm-season grasses on golf courses, residential and commercial lawns, sod farms and sports turf. With Manuscript, you can get application flexibility you need to treat mature weeds. It can be used in the heat of summer when desired turfgrass is actively growing and will fill in rapidly. Manuscript is formulated with a built-in, proprietary safener to enhance performance and turf safety.
With a novel class of chemistry for turf (phenylpyrazolin - DEN, Group 1), pinoxaden is rapidly absorbed and translocated to the growing points of weed foliage, where its powerful phenylpyrazolin inhibitor halts ACCase enzyme activity on tough grassy weeds for improved safety and resistance management
Desirable turf quickly fills in voids left behind after weeds are controlled, especially in the summer when warm-season turf is actively growing
Reduced hand-weeding means greater labor savings
Manuscript is packaged with Adigor™ surfactant from Syngenta, which is custom-built to be used with Manuscript for greater application reliability. With Manuscript, Adigor is specifically designed to:
With the turf safety of Manuscript, applications are recommended between the end of May and the beginning of September (best timing depends on the target weed). This will encourage desirable grass to fill in quickly while it is actively growing.
Manuscript can be applied as a broadcast treatment for control of bull/thin paspalum, however spot treatments are recommended for difficult-to-control weeds like tropical signalgrass. Spot treatments can also be used to help control crabgrass breakouts in lawns.
For additional application details, download the Manuscript technical brochure and always read and follow label instructions.
Square plots of crabgrass were treated with two spot treatments of Manuscript at 0.96 fl. oz./gal. and Adigor at 0.64 fl. oz./gal., 13 days apart. Huntsville, Alabama, 2018. Performance assessments are based upon results or analysis of public information, field observations and/or internal Syngenta evaluations. Trials reflect treatment rates commonly recommended in the marketplace.

After removing patches of undesirable weeds with Manuscript, secondary weeds like sedges and broadleaves tend to fill in. A follow-up application of Monument® 75WG herbicide controls a broad spectrum of secondary weeds and will reduce weed re-establishment, so desirable turf can grow without weed competition.
Manuscript causes little-to-no injury or growth regulation to bermudagrass or zoysiagrass when applied at broadcast or spot treatment rates.

Controlling grassy weeds is a difficult task, especially if pre-emergent herbicides either were not applied or failed to provide acceptable control for any reason. Read more »
A weed can be defined simply as a plant growing where it’s not wanted. An agronomic view would add that weeds compete for water, light and space with desirable plants, and can harbor diseases and insects. Read more »
