Why Suprado is an All-Time Favorite.
For many golf course superintendents, annual bluegrass weevil (ABWs) presents an interesting challenge. As ABW larvae feed on annual bluegrass, large areas of turf turn yellow and die, which is an eyesore on greens and fairways.
Quali-Pro recognized the challenges superintendents faced and jumped into action, creating Suprado Insecticide powered by the active ingredient Novaluron. Novaluron works as a chitin synthesis inhibitor, interfering with the insect’s ability to create chitin, a vital part of the exoskeleton, causing abortive molting, and killing the larvae.
The Success of Suprado Speaks for itself.
It took years of research and development effort and the support of several University professionals to make Suprado what it is and to earn the trust of golf course superintendents.Now, after the first season of use, Suprado has proven itself as an effective product in the battle against annual bluegrass weevils and become an all-time favorite of superintendents.
When applied at peak adult activity, Suprado has proven 95% plus efficacy on ABW control. Research is ongoing with additional turf pests, including application use rates and post-application irrigation volumes. Suprado is now registered for use in the majority of the United States; Quali-Pro is waiting on approval for the State of New York.
