New SpeedZone EW broadleaf herbicide for turf from PBI-Gordon features a novel, emulsion-in-water (EW) formulation – a technological advance from emulsifiable concentrate (EC) formulations that rely on solvents to solubilize active ingredients.
The emulsion-in-water technology of SpeedZone EW creates smaller particle size than EC formulations. This results in more active ingredients impacting the leaf surface for improved efficacy, plus a lower odor profile and lower Volatile Organic Content (VOC). And the EW formulation is engineered for use in low-volume and conventional sprayers.
Ideal for use on golf courses, residential and commercial turf areas, SpeedZone EW controls more than 90 tough broadleaf weeds, including dollarweed, ground ivy, and spurge. It is labeled for use in the most common turfgrass species, including Kentucky bluegrass, annual bluegrass, annual ryegrass, perennial ryegrass, and tall fescue.
Other features of SpeedZone EW include:
- A visual response within 24 hours; Weed death in 7-14 days
- Rainfast in as little as three hours
- Allows for reseeding in one week
*SpeedZone EW will be available for sale in fall 2020, pending state registrations.
