DuPont launches Website – Turfgrass Science at Purdue University

DuPont launches Website

This week DuPont launched a new website designed to help answer questions from those who have used Imprelis® and are seeing injury to trees.

The website,, states the following: “As a precaution until we are able to more fully understand the circumstances surrounding reports of tree damage related to Imprelis┬«, do not apply Imprelis┬« where Norway Spruce or White Pine are present on, or in close proximity to, the property to be treated. Be careful that no spray treatment, drift or runoff occurs that could make contact with trees, shrubs and other desirable plants, and stay well away from exposed roots and the root zone of trees and shrubs.

Starting August 1, 2011, DuPont is establishing a toll free hotline to take all reports of problems from lawn care professionals, property managers and owners, and golf courses, and to handle any homeowner questions and concerns.
