Surge Broadleaf Herbicide for Turf, PBI/Gordon Corporation, Kansas City, Mo.
Surge Broadleaf Herbicide for Turf is the first product for turf managers containing the protox inhibitor sulfentrazone. Sulfentrazone provides a different mode of action with a fast visual response (fastest available in a water-based amine). Weeds turn brown, dry up and blow away within a few weeks. This quick visual response lets contractor clients know that their weeds are dying—quickly—reducing call-backs. Formulated with phenoxies for broad-spectrum control, Surge not only controls many difficult warm-weather weeds such as spurge and knotweed, it also suppresses yellow nutsedge. Low odor Surge is designed for use by professional grounds managers and contractors.
Over ten years of testing formulations to find the optimum product ratios and almost three years of pending EPA registration time went into developing Surge by Formulations Laboratory Personnel and Research and Development Team Personnel.
Surge Broadleaf Herbicide is innovative because of its a fast visual response. Weed control activity is quickly visible allowing lawn care professionals and landscape clients to see that their weeds are dying, which eliminates many call backs for contractors.
PBI/Gordon Corporation has been in business since 1947 and employs 250 people.
