Fuerte is a pre-emergent granular herbicide for control of weeds in field, container and landscape ornamentals, grounds maintenance, and non-cropland areas. Also for Christmas Tree Farms and conifer farms and other label specified non-crop areas.
Fuerte contains the active ingredients flumioxazin and prodiamine formulated on the Verge® granule. The engineered granule provides an unprecedented level of dust reduction resulting in improved worker safety and ease of application.

Fuerte provides control of a wide range of problem grass and broadleaf weeds by creating a barrier in the soil and is active for several months. Fuerte contains the active ingredient flumioxazin, which is a protoporphyrinogen oxidase inhibitor (PPO) mode of action (Group 14) and prodiamine, a member of the dinitroanilines family of herbicides (Group 3) that inhibits the steps involved with cell division. The active ingredients control susceptible weeds by preventing growth and development of newly germinated seeds. Fuerte will not control established weeds.
