Pendulum® 2G Herbicide

A Better Solution for Bigger Savings

  • Pendulum 2G herbicide is one of the most economical preventive weed control options in the ornamental nursery industry, controlling a wide range of weed species – more than 40 grassy and broadleaf weeds – at a low-cost-per-acre price. Over 335 ornamental species are listed on the label.  

Benefits of Pendulum® 2G Herbicide

When used as directed, Pendulum 2G:

  • Is one of a few herbicides recommended by university specialists that has shown excellent crop safety on annuals, perennials and woody ornamentals.
  • Is for over-the-top use in nurseries on woody species and perennial species that are sensitive to oxyfluorfen or other selected broadleaf herbicides.
  • Contains pendimethalin, the long-time industry leader in preemergent weed control performance and value.
  • Is an excellent granular formulation for use in landscape beds where safety across a variety of ornamental plant materials is required.

Weeds And Grasses Controlled By Pendulum 2G

Pendulum 2G offers reliable control of several key weeds and grasses including:

  • Annual Bluegrass
  • Barnyardgrass
  • Chickweed Species
  • Crabgrass
  • Foxtail Species
  • Goosegrass
  • Henbit
  • Purslane
  • Shepherdspurse

From 2004–2006, the IR-4 minor used ornamental program-sponsored research to expand the labels of three preemergent herbicides used to manage weeds in and around nursery crops. More than 70 ornamental species were shown to be tolerant to applications of Pendulum® 2G herbicide when applied over the top of established plants used in nursery production and in landscapes.

In over two years of evaluations with 16 USDA and university researchers from across the country, Pendulum 2G was evaluated at 1x, 2x and 4x the label rate for plant safety.

Keys To Success

Uniform application of Pendulum 2G over the treated area is essential for effective control. The herbicide must be applied prior to weed germination.
