Bayer CropScience Announces Tribute Total Approved for Use on Zoysiagrass

Complete solution now controls the toughest weeds in both zoysiagrass and
bermudagrass

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., July 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB -
Environmental Science, a division of Bayer CropScience LP, today announced
Tribute™ Total can be used on zoysiagrass. Tribute Total – a novel
post-emergent herbicide – delivers broad spectrum control in one complete
solution to help lawn care managers and golf course superintendents
selectively remove the most troublesome grassy and broadleaf weeds, sedges and
kyllingas.

"Lawn care managers and superintendents face weed pressure throughout the
growing months from a variety of species," said Jeff Michel, Herbicides
Business Manager for Bayer's professional turf and ornamentals business.
"Tribute Total provides turf managers a complete solution for problem weeds
without the need to tank mix multiple products, saving them time and money."

Tribute Total helps superintendents and lawn care professionals better manage
their labor input by eliminating the need for multiple products. Approved for
use on bermudagrass and now zoysiagrass, it is effective against 55 grassy and
broadleaf weeds including dallisgrass, crabgrass, and yellow and purple
nutsedge.

About Tribute Total

At a use rate range of 1 - 3.2 oz per acre, each 6 oz container of Tribute
Total treats 1.875 – 6 acres. After application, the product is readily
absorbed by the foliage and carried to the site of action in the growing
points of the susceptible weed. Additionally, with a 60.5% water dispersible
granule formulation, Tribute Total requires less storage space,
transportation, and less frequent container disposal. For more information on
