Introducing New Trimec® 1000 Low Odor Broadleaf Herbicide
Trimec® 1000 Low Odor Broadleaf Herbicide was introduced by
PBI/Gordon Corporation this fall. This new proprietary formulation
contains MCPP, dicamba and two forms of 2,4-D: DEA (diethanolamine)
and DMA (dimethylamine). The combination of these two forms of 2,4-D
has a unique ability to resist crystallization for more complete
plant absorption and is classified as a “mixed amine” by
university researchers. The resulting four-way product provides
an incredibly broad-spectrum of control.
Trimec 1000 was developed
for the golf and lawn care industries. “Another unique aspect
of Trimec 1000 is its low odor, which means that weed-free turf
can be accomplished without raising undue concerns from people passing
by treated areas”, explains Doug Obermann, Product Manager
for Gordon’s Professional Products. This characteristic is
ideal for public areas such as parks, sports turf and residential
lawns. “And with more active ingredients translocating down
to the root, all major lawn weeds are controlled—even the
most deep-rooted perennials,” says Obermann.
Trimec 1000 can
be used in most cool-season and warm-season turfgrass areas. State
registrations are complete in 49 states (excluding Alaska). Trimec
1000 is the most recent addition to the trusted Gordon’s Trimec
family of reliable broadleaf weed control options.
Corporation is 100% employee-owned. The company has been in business
for over 60 years. While the company focuses primarily on the development
of professional turf and ornamental products, they also market agricultural
specialty, consumer lawn and garden and animal health care products.
