DuPont Partners with Audubon’s Cooperative
|DuPont Professional Products brings the company’s 200-year tradition of science and innovation to the global pest management, turf/ornamentals and golf industries.|
When golf courses join the ACSP, they must meet a list of goals in order to apply for certification. They collaborate with Audubon to develop and implement an environmental management plan and document results in six areas: environmental planning, wildlife and habitat management, chemical use reduction and safety, water conservation, water quality management, and outreach and education.
Many DuPont customers use DuPont™ Acelepryn® insecticide and DuPont™ Imprelis™ herbicide for insect and weed control, respectively. One application of Acelepryn® delivers excellent control of the 10 toughest grubs, plus other key surface-feeding pests. No other grub product can match its level of performance or outstanding environmental and toxicological profile. Plus, Acelepryn® has been registered by the U.S. EPA as a reduced-risk pesticide for turf applications.
Imprelis™ allows turf professionals to control dandelion, clover and plantains, plus the toughest broadleaf weeds — like ground ivy and wild violets — even during reseeding or rainy days. Its single active ingredient has one of the lowest application rates, combined with low toxicity to mammals and low environmental impact. Studies show that it is effective against many hard-to-control weeds, and is not impacted by rain, hot temperatures or cool temperatures.
