New Herbicide from Certis Made to Cover All the Bases

Certis USA has introduced to the specialty crop market Homeplate® — an OMRI listed, non-selective, broad-spectrum, fatty acid burndown herbicide that works as a foliar contact spray to control a wide variety of weeds.


According to Certis, Homeplate is a non-systemic, “total vegetation killer” labeled for use in all crops, including outdoor and protected produce. Homeplate has proven efficacy against a growing list of broadleaf weeds and grasses that includes black nightshade, Canada thistle, catchweed bedstraw, chickweed, common lambsquarter, foxtail, shepherd’s purse, and wild Chamomile.

The product is rainfast within three hours and achieves total kill within 12 hours to 72 hours, depending upon environmental conditions. In addition to burndown, Homeplate is flexible with uses in direct and shielded sprays, pre-plant applications, postharvest sprays, as well as for sucker control and as a pruning and trimming aid.

Homeplate is not approved for use in California.
