Product Details

Divanem Insecticide

Divanem nematicide delivers excellent turf quality through proven, broad-spectrum control of sting, root-knot, lance, spiral and Anguina nematodes. The innovative formulation targets nematodes where they are most active to provide turf quality enhancements, improved drought tolerance and quicker recovery from stress.

Divanem features a spot treatment rate of 12.2 fl. oz./10,000 ft.2. The rate makes more product available to turf roots and plant tissue, resulting in rapid nematode control and improved turf quality on golf course greens, tees and fairways. The Divanem supplemental label must be in the possession of the user at the time of spot treatment. Existing Divanem inventory may be used at the spot treatment rate as long as the supplemental label is readily available.

          Features & Benefits

          Enhanced Turf Quality
          Defends roots from nematode damage, which leads to enhanced root quality and mass for healthier, stronger turf that absorbs water and nutrients more efficiently.
          Broad-Spectrum Nematode Control
          Controls the most important root-feeding nematodes, sting, root-knot, lance, spiral and Anguina, on greens, tees and fairways.
          Enhanced Drought Tolerance
          Defends turf against nematodes, which improves root growth, quality and density for enhanced drought tolerance. Deeper, denser root systems naturally strengthen turf performance under drought and heat stress.
          Quicker Recovery
          Research shows more rapid recovery from mechanical stresses, like aerification, compared to turf not treated with Divanem.

          Multipak Available

          Nematodes weaken turf root systems, decreasing the plant's ability to defend against biotic and abiotic stressors like heat, drought and disease. Combining Divanem nematicide with Heritage® Action™ can strengthen roots by managing nematodes, diseases and abiotic stressors.

            Often, nematodes are overlooked pests in turfgrass. The above-ground symptoms that result from their feeding are extremely variable, including lack of wear tolerance, slow recovery from aerification, heat and drought stress, nutrient deficiency and increased susceptibility to disease.

            Spring is an important time to protect turfgrass roots from nematode feeding. If nematodes are left uncontrolled, they can severely hamper new root growth, slow spring green-up and send turf into the summer in a weakened state.
