Selective Sedge and Broadleaf Weed Control


Product Overview

3D herbicide is a sedge and broadleaf weed herbicide containing 192 g/L bentazone, 112 g/L MCPA and 19 g/L dicamba. It is registered for the control of a wide range of dicot weeds and sedges in a broad range of recreational turf situations. 3D Herbicide is very safe on a large number of established turf varieties including couch, Qld blue couch, fescue, carpet, centipede, Kentucky blue and rye grass. A key feature of 3D Herbicide is its low odor, schedule 5 characteristics, making it easy to use and safer for use in public environments. 3D Herbicide is one of the broadest spectrum broadleaf weed & sedge herbicides available on the market, registered to control a minimum of 12 key weeds. 3D herbicide contains dual modes of action for improved performance and resistance management


Key Features of 3-D Herbicide

  • Ideal for both cool- and warm-season turf
  • Flexible use rates for problem control and maintenance applications; compatible for tank-mixing with most liquid fertilizers and iron


Active Ingredients:

Dimethylamine Salt of 2,4-Dichloro-phenoxyacetic acid* 
Dimethylamine Salt of (+)-R-2-(2-methyl-4-chlorophenoxy) propionic acid** 
Dimethylamine Salt of Dicamba (3,6-dichloro-o-anisic acid)***


Mode of Action

MCPA & Dicamba are foliar absorbed systemic herbicides that belong to the Group I Mode of Action Group. They are often termed auxin mimic herbicides because they mimic natural growth hormones, and upset the natural hormone balance in weedy species. Growth hormones regulate cell elongation, protein synthesis, and cell division. By upsetting the normal hormone balance within susceptible weeds, auxin mimic herbicides cause unregulated plant growth, causing symptoms on susceptible plants that include growth and reproduction abnormalities. Broadleaf species exhibit stem and petiole twisting (epinasty), leaf malformations, parallel venation, crinkling, leaf strapping, stem callus formation, and stunted root growth. Plant death is gradual, due to unconstrained mobilization of reserves, however generally symptoms are observed within 7- 14 days following application. Bentazone is a Benzothiadiazole herbicide that works by inhibiting photosynthesis in the chloroplast of plants. After application, chlorosis begins 3 to 5 days following application followed by necrosis and desiccation of the plant. Bentazone is a contact herbicide and therefore thorough coverage of the foliage of weeds is essential.


Usage Rate

3D Herbicide is applied at a rate of 6 L - 20 L/Ha (60 mL – 200 mL/100 m2 ). In most situations the 6 L/Ha (60 mL/100 m2 ) is sufficient to control most weeds. To enhance coverage and movement of the active ingredients into the plant, it is recommended that 3D Herbicide be mixed with a crop oil concentrate (COC), such as Hasten.

Works Best of All
I have used many brands of 2, 4-D but 3-D has the highest percentage of product of all others. Therefore, it covers three times the area and that is money in my pocket. If you mix it and apply it per label, it works, period. It makes me happy when the grass is weed free. Count on 3-D and Solutionsstores.com and there fast shipping.
