Product Overview

Caliente's innovative dual mode of action provides highly effective broadleaf and grassy-weed post-emergent activity.

Turfgrass Safety, Broadleaf Control

Providing excellent turfgrass safety and containing the power of Octane® technology, Caliente's two active ingredients—metsulfuron-methyl and pyraflufen-ethyl—deliver a faster kill for a wide range of broadleaf weeds, providing higher customer satisfaction and reduced customer callbacks. 

Metsulfuron-methyl's systemic action blocks the production of essential amino acids in plants, while pyraflufen-ethyl 's contact herbicide inhibits the enzyme protoporphyrinogen oxidase, which is involved in the production of chlorophyll. Together they deliver a quick burn down of susceptible weeds in as little as 24 to 48 hours, with systemic activity providing long-term control of targeted weeds. 

  • Fast acting kill of broadleaf weeds powered by Octane, with visual results in 24 to 48 hours.
  • Broad-spectrum control of tough broadleaf weeds such as spurge, clover, wild onion, wild garlic, dandelion, dollarweed/pennywort, Virginia buttonweed, chickweed, plantains, Florida pusley, knotweed, lespedeza and many more.
  • Excellent turf safety to established bermudagrass, St. Augustine, zoysiagrass, centipedegrass, Kentucky bluegrass and fine fescue.
