Discussion in 'Pesticide & Herbicide Application' started by MrBarefoot, May 5, 2005.

  1. Does anyone have any feedback on PBI's new weed control product "Surge".

    works great for me, best thing I have found for clover. Kills clover in one shot. I mix it up into my bp sprayer and spot spray with it.

    What is it? I mean, what all is in it? I'll look it up. :)

    Ok,...It's 3 way (just a weakened version of it).
  4. According to the PBI rep I met at a trade show, it is similar to SpeedZone.

    The big difference is SpeedZone has Carfentrazone, and Surge has Sulfentrazone instead.

    I like the price, and I am interested in giving it a shot.

    I just sprayed over 500,000 sq ft with it. It does show visual results quickly but total burn down is slow.

    Total burn down time for surge is a downside, the specs on the jug say up to two weeks for total kill. But for the price it works pretty well.
  7. Thank you gentlemen for your input. I have more questions for you now.

    What was your weed control product of choice before you tried Surge, and do you think Surge performed better?

    Do intend to replace that product this season with Surge?

    Anyone using a Perma-Green to apply it?

    How does Surge handle Violets? (I know its not labeled for Violets)
