Introducing new Q4 Plus turf herbicide

PBI/Gordon Corporation introduces new Q4 Plus, an improved formulation of their grassy and broadleaf herbicide containing quinclorac. Previously sold as Q4 Turf Herbicide with 0.5 lbs./acre of quinclorac, the product has been reformulated with 0.75 lbs./acre and will be sold as Q4 Plus Turf Herbicide. The other ingredients – sulfentrazone + 2,4-D + dicamba – remain the same .

With the disappearance of MSMA from use on residential and commercial turf, new Q4 Plus offers the professional turf manager more knockout power on grassy weeds, explains Doug Obermann, Product Manager for Gordon’s Professional Products. “Like Trimec Plus, which contains MSMA, Q4 Plus offers a single product control option for grassy and broadleaf weeds and yellow nutsedge. Users appreciate that convenience,” Obermann continues.

The fast action of Q4 Plus also gives visual results within 24 to 48 hours – another bonus for turf managers. “When their clients see fast results, it reduces the number of call backs that they receive. And that’s going to save money,” says Obermann.

Q4 Plus is formulated for use on bluegrasses, perennial and annual ryegrass, fescues and, now, bermudagrass.

The EPA approved the new label in December 2009 and state registrations are complete with the exception of California which is still pending. Product is expected to be available for shipment by the week of May 10, 2010.
