Organic Weed Control


Torocity® is both a pre-emergent and post-emergent weed killer that provides control of more than 45 broadleaf weeds and grasses in turf grass. Torocity inhibits photosynthesis in targeted plants and is absorbed systemically through leaves and roots. It can be effectively used for weed control prior to and when seeding of specific types of turf grasses.  Compare to exact ingredients in Tenacity® Weed Killer.

Torocity Active Ingredient

Mesotrione ..... 40.0%*
* Same exact ingredient as Tenacity Weed Killer with a more cost-effective price.

Note: Torocity is one of the few synthetics we carry since there is not any organic post-emergent crabgrass control available. The active ingredient, mesotrione, is based on a naturally occurring compound produced by the bottlebrush plant that inhibits photosynthesis in susceptible
plant species. Torocity has reduced-risk status by the EPA due to low toxicity profile.
