Control Weeds with Manuscript
Mature weeds have met their match. Using a unique class of chemistry for turf, Manuscript® herbicide can be effectively sprayed at any weed growth stage. It controls tropical signalgrass and other grassy weeds any time they are actively growing and outstanding turf safety.

Manuscript may be applied to bermudagrass and zoysiagrass on golf courses, sod farms, sport fields, residential properties (including home lawns) and other non-residential turf areas (such as airports, cemeteries, commercial buildings and similar sites. With Manuscript®, you can get the application flexibility you need to treat mature weeds. It can be used in the heat of summer when desired turfgrass is actively growing, and is formulatwed with a built-in, proprietary safener to enhance performance and turf safety. Manuscript® is packaged with AdigorTM surfactant from Syngenta, which is custom-built to be used with Manuscript® to maximize the quantity and rate of absorption of pinoxaden, as well as the degree of translocation once pinoxaden is in the plant.
IMPROVED POST-EMERGENCE CONTROL OF TOUGH WEEDS
Selective herbicide with an advanced form of ACCase mode of action that works fast on tough mixed grasses regardless of growth stage, including large, mature weeds
OUTSTANDING TURF SAFETY
Includes a built-in safener (cloquintocet-mexyl) that speeds metabolism of pinoxaden in desirable turf and improves weed control performance:
- Enables spot treatments
- Further improves selectivity against tough, actively growing weeds without temperature restrictions
- Additionally, the MOA allows applications near ornamental beds and shrubs
Reduced hand-weeding means greater labour savings
Desirable turf quickly fills in voids left behind after weeds are controlled, especially in the spring-early summer when warm-season turf is actively growing
UNIQUE CHEMISTRY CLASS
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.
Customised Surfactant Maximizes Efficacy
Using Manuscript® with Adigor provides greater application reliability. Adigor is an advanced surfactant system custom - built to be used with Manuscript® to:
- Speed and maximize foliar absorption
- Increase spray droplet deposition
- Enhance droplet spreading
- Soften plant cuticle to speed and maximize absorption
- Improve rainfastness in as quickly as one hour
With the turf safety of Manuscript®, applications are recommended between spring and summer (best timing depends on the target weed). This will encourage desirable grass to fill in quickly while it is actively growing.
While it can be applied as a broadcast treatment for control of bull/thin paspalum, 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. Manuscript® must be tank-mixed with Adigor at 0.5% v/v to optimize spray droplet deposition, spreading and foliar absorption.
Spot treatment applications are recommended for optimal results
RECOMMENDATION FOR HAND-HELD SPRAY WAND APPLICATIONS
- Mix 0.96 fl. oz. of Manuscript® and 0.64 fl. oz. of Adigor in 1 gal. of water to treat 1,000 ft.2
- Make applications in 40 gal./A
- Make a second application 14-21 days later when weed re-growth is observed
RECOMMENDATION FOR BOOM APPLICATIONS
- Mix 9.6 fl. oz. of Manuscript® and 6.4 fl. oz. of Adigor in 10 gal. of water to treat 10,000 ft.2
- Make applications in 40 gal./A using flat fan nozzles (standard or air induction) that produce medium to very coarse droplets
- Make a second application14-21days later when weed re-growth is observed
DO NOT treat more than 10,000 ft.2/A
DO NOT apply more than 19.2 fl. oz./A of Manuscript® per calendar year
Program Approach to Control Secondary Weeds
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 controls a broad spectrum of secondary weeds and will reduce weed re-establishment, so desirable turf can grow without weed competition.
Manuscript Application for Weed Control
Two applications at 9.6 fl. oz./A on a 14- to 21-day interval (28-day interval for St. Augustinegrass)
One application at 19.2 fl. oz./A
Proven Weed Control - Signal Grass
Manuscript® has been evaluated for weed control across a series of field trials. The following results show the consistent efficacy of the product.
(WAIT = weeks after initial treatment)
Treatments applied twice on a 21-day interval. Manuscript® mixed with Adigor at 0.5% v/v. Tribute® Total mixed with MSO at 0.5% v/v. Source: Neil Young, Miami, Florida, 2017. 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.
Crabgrass Weed Contol
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.
