Tupersan® Label Expansion
July 1, 2004
Kansas City, Missouri -- PBI/Gordon Corporation has announced EPA approval
of chemigation use instructions for Gordon's Tupersan Herbicide Wettable Powder.
Tupersan is a highly selective pre-emergent herbicide which controls smooth and
hairy crabgrass and can be used before, during or immediately following the seeding
of cool-season grasses.
The new label directions will allow sod and seed producers of cool-season turfgrass
to use the product in most irrigation systems, a practice which can save a great
deal of time and money. "The marketplace insisted," said Doug Obermann, Product
Manager for Gordon's Professional Products. "It's economics, pure and simple," explained
Obermann. Time is money in any business and chemigation saves time.
Last year the company introduced a 50 pound size of the product. "The marketplace
demanded the larger size, too", says Obermann. Sod producers are an important
segment of the professional turf market, according to Obermann, and they need
to be able to obtain their products in sizes appropriate to their needs. The
new size was received with enthusiasm in the sod market. "We think the new label
use directions for chemigation meets a need and will generate equal excitement," Obermann
Tupersan Herbicide Wettable Powder remains one of the few products which can
be applied for pre-emergent crabgrass control at the time of seeding. For more
