    Has this new herbicide been certified in your area and have you used it yet.?
    IF I read the article correctly, the product is labeled for golf course and not for the residential sector's yet. Is this correct.??

    Marsh,
    You are kidding right?
    I must have fallen off my sprayer reading this post.
    I was wanting to know if this product has been approved for all other applicator's, because it is labeled differently for other states. I can't recall it being approved by the EPA for Arkansas. If it is approved for us applicator's in other states, then is this product worth the hype of the publications.
    It may be in the consumer purchase forums now but highly unlikely as it is a trickle down from Agricultural herbicides. A license does apply to most states as I understand this product is new and is usually subject to restricted use applicator's until the patent wear's off!!

    I was speaking with my supplier a few months ago he told me that Katana is very old chemistry that is still used in rice crops in Asia.
    The restrictions oddly that will keep it from going big time are the
    water restrictions in the US.
