Our products range from fertilizers, bare ground and vegetation management, as well as adjuvants and dyes.

 

One of the finer products you can find in our store is SpeedZone Broadleaf Herbicide, a fast-acting herbicide that destroys a surprisingly large variety of weeds from spoiling your lawn.

 

WHY USE SPEEDZONE BROADLEAF HERBICIDE

 

Manufactured by PBI/Gordon Corporation out of Kansas City, Missouri, and established in 1947, you can expect years of knowledge and experience in each of their products as well as professional grade standards.

 

This product is one of the fastest weed killers on the market after all its main feature is stated in the branding, SpeedZone.

 

Delivering visible injury activity in a matter of hours, it ultimately kills weeds in about seven to fourteen days. With its fast-acting formula, there is no doubt this product brings results.

 

It has been proven in university and real-world trials to provide faster results than 4-Speed XT, in trials against Dandelion, Spurge, White Clover, and Buckhorn Plantain weeds.

 

Labeled to target more than 100+ species of weeds, this is what we considered a true-broad spectrum herbicide. Some of the weeds included on this list are bedstraws, ground ivy, white clover, dog fennel, bull thistle, black medic, clover, dandelion, chickweed, English daisy, nettle, velvetleaf, wild violet, wild garlic, kochia, mustard nettle, knotweed, lawn burweed, oxalis, poison ivy, pigweed, red weed, among many others.

 

It is a post-emergent weed control product, which means that it treats weeds that have already grown and are making your lawn unsightly.

 

It consists of four active ingredients, Carfentrazone-ethyl 62.%, 2-Ethylhexyl ester 28.57%, Mecoprop-p acid 5.88%, and Dicamba acid 1.71%.

 

Carfentrazone-ethyl is in the aryl triazolinone family and inhibits protoporphyrinogen oxidase or Protox for short, which is an extremely important enzyme in chlorophyll production.

 

In other words, this product disrupts the chlorophyll production in weeds, which as we all know, all plants need to survive.

 

This product also has outstanding cool weather performance, which may affect the effectiveness of other herbicides.

 

This product is labeled as having high-selectivity, which means it will only affect weeds that are listed, which is a great plus when spraying near a garden. However, we would be careful when spraying as to not affect beneficial plants.

 

This product comes in two sizes, a 1-gallon bottle, and a 2.5-gallon bottle.

 

WHERE CAN I USE THIS PRODUCT

 

This product is labeled to be used in warm-season and cool-season turfgrass in institutional sites that are defined as turf areas around properties or facilities providing a service to public or private organizations including, but not limited to hospitals, nursing homes, schools, museums, libraries, sport facilities, golf courses (fairways, aprons, and roughs), and office buildings.

 

Ornamental sites include turfgrass established around residences, parks, streets, retail outlets, cemeteries, industrial and institutional buildings, recreation areas, fairgrounds, and areas adjacent to athletic fields.

 

It’s also good to be used in residential/domestic sites that are defined as areas associated with the household or home life including, but not limited to apartments, complexes, condominiums, patient care areas of nursing homes, mental institutions, hospitals, or convalescent homes.

 

It also works in agricultural sites that specialize in commercial sod production and in non-cropland sites such as highway rights-of-way (principal, interstate, county, private, and unpaved roads), roadsides, roadside ditches, road shoulders, road embankments, dividers, and medians.

 

HOW TO USE

 

Before using this herbicide take care to read all labeled instructions and precautions and wear protective equipment (you can buy protective equipment here).

 

To use this product you will need a sprayer. Our easy to use and convenient Solutions 1 Gallon Pump Sprayer with lifetime warranty would be ideal (you can buy it here) for residential use or you can browse our professional tank and backpack sprayers here if you’re a lawn care professional.

 

When using this product take care not to apply near bodies of water such as lakes, rivers, ponds, reservoirs, or agricultural irrigational canals, or ditch banks.

 

Also be careful when spraying close to gardens, trees, and beneficial vegetation as these plants may be affected.

 

TIP: Use a plastic container or cardboard as shields for the flowers, trees, and vegetation you want to protect. Although this product boast high-selectivity, which means it won’t affect nearby vegetation, is better to err on the safe side.

 

Take care to use this product in favorable weather conditions, which would include a warm sunny day and when wind conditions do not exceed 10mph, which could raise the likeliness of translocation of product to other nearby vegetation.

 

To mix this product, its best to fill your tank or sprayer halfway with the required amount of water, then add product and then completely fill the tank or sprayer with water, and shake thoroughly to allow for complete dilution.

 

A best practice to put into effect would be to agitate the product constantly as you use it, as an emulsion of the product might form (which simply means that it will be improperly mixed, in other words, tiny droplets of the product will form in the water and lessened its effects when applying).

 

When mixing this product take into account that measurements may vary depending on the species of turf on which it will be applied. A complete mixture rate table is found on the label, specifying recommended amounts of product for each species of turfs.

 

You can use this product as a broadcast treatment for the whole yard or a spot treatment in cracks in sidewalks, pathways, garages, driveways, or other structures near vegetation.

 

If using this product as a broadcast treatment on a warm-season turf such as common bermudagrass, hybrid bermudagrass, zoysiagrass and buffalograss mix at a rate of .75-1.5 fl oz per .1-5 gals per 1,000 sq ft.

 

After mixing the product simply point and shoot close to the where the weeds are growing and you should start seeing injury evidence within a couple of hours.

 

A good technique for spraying would be to apply directly to areas affected without swinging the sprayer nozzle back and forth, but as stationary shots close to where the weeds are, as side-to-side motions result in uneven coverage of product and improper application.  

 

If a secondary application needs to be made to control the weeds, wait about 30 days before reapplying. For exact limitations on application rates depending on the type of application (broadcast or spot spray) and type of species of turf, check the label.

 

CONCLUSION

 

This fast action and reliable professional post-emergent herbicide quickly takes care of business.

 

It is great under cooler application temperatures and as true broad-spectrum herbicide, you can expect more than 100+ types of weeds to be completely eradicated from your property.

 

With a high concentration of its active ingredient, Carfentrazone-ethyl, you can expect to disrupt the chlorophyll production in targeted weeds. If you’re looking for fast an easy solution to your weed problem, reach for this product.
