Tenacity® herbicide keeps creeping bentgrass from unwanted creeping.

Creeping bentgrass has earned its name. It is aggressive in its growth into grasses like Kentucky bluegrass, perennial ryegrass, and tall fescue.

Finally, Tenacity®, with its active ingredient mesotrione, gives you selective bentgrass control. Because up until now, there has been no effective way to keep bentgrass at bay without killing the entire turfgrass stand. And that’s the Tenacity revolution!

Research has shown that using Tenacity herbicide results in at least 92% control of creeping bentgrass in Kentucky bluegrass.1
