T-Zone™ Broadleaf Herbicide for Tough Weeds

PBI/Gordon Corporation is pleased to announce the EPA approval of their new T-Zone™ Broadleaf Herbicide for Tough Weeds. T-Zone, containing triclopyr, sulfentrazone and phenoxies which provide exceptional control of tough broadleaf weeds in cool-season turfgrasses.

T-Zone will be marketed under our ProForm brand, Gordon’s line of fast-acting herbicides with unique active ingredients. “Triclopyr gives T-Zone an extra kick for controlling problem weeds like wild violets,” says Doug Obermann, Product Manager for Gordon’s Professional products. “The “T” is triclopyr; the “Zone” is the sulfentrazone which provides enhanced speed as well as yellow nutsedge suppression” explains Obermann. Other weeds including ground ivy, oxalis and black medic are also among the tough turf weeds controlled by T-Zone.

T-Zone, like all the ProForm products, was developed to provide the professional turf manager with a precision performance tool to eliminate tough turf weeds – fast. “There are a lot of triclorpyr users who have been waiting for this product,” says Obermann. “With twice the amount of triclopyr that many competitive products have, T-Zone will be immediately recognized in the marketplace as premium product for weed control,” he said.

The ProForm line of herbicides was introduced in 2001 as a brand for new products offering unique solutions to the marketplace. Other ProFrom products include SpeedZone®, PowerZone®, SpeedZone® Southern, Surge® and Q4® all contain precise ratios of protox inhibitors with phenoxy herbicides and dicamba. “The product line has become well known for its enhanced speed and activity,” says Obermann. “T-Zone is a great addition to the line.”

Limited T-Zone trial samples will be available through distributors this summer; the product is expected to be available for fall tough weed application.

PBI/Gordon Corporation, a Kansas City, Missouri corporation is 100% employee-owned and celebrating over 60 years of business as a manufacturer and distributor. While the company focuses primarily on the professional turf and ornamental industry, they also market agricultural specialty, consumer lawn and garden and animal health care products.

what's in it ????

Can't find detailed info from the PBI Gordon website regarding this new product. Wondering about percentages, etc too. We'd try it, but first I have to know what's in it. What formulation, etc. So far....nothing. IMO - This is no way to promote a product. Ester/amine?

It's by far the most expensive weed control we buy. We only use it in the fall. $66.50/gl

Ya its expensive but works. Nutsedge suppression is a bonus.
I am also considering straight 3 way with Turflon Ester.
