Drive XLR8 (Quinclorac) vs. Tenacity (Mesotrione)
Tenacity herbicide is a very popular brand name herbicide that uses the active ingredient, Mesotrione. This is also a selective weed killer and crabgrass killer, but is also a safe pre-emergent herbicide when seeding and overseeding with new grass seed. Tenacity is like applying sunblock to plants, as it prevents photosynthesis from occurring. The effects of Tenacity will begin to turn the plant white, preventing the weeds to grow, and ultimately dying off.
