Carmel, IN – SePRO Corporation has announced that Octane 2%SC will be introduced to the U.S. lawn, landscape, and golf markets. Octane 2%SC contains the active ingredient, Pyraflufen ethyl, which when added as a tank-mix with post-emergent broadleaf weed herbicides, dramatically increases the speed of kill, and broadens their weed spectrum. Visual herbicidal results are evident within 24-48 hours of application with Octane.
Octane will join the SePRO product portfolio beginning November 15, 2006. SePRO, a leading manufacturer of turf and ornamental chemicals, markets brands such as Cutless 50W* Turf Growth Regulator, Cutless Granular Landscape Growth Regulator*, Junction* Fungicide/Bactericide, and Pentathlon* DF and LF to the lawn and golf turf industries.
“Today’s consumers demand instant gratification and we realize that the cost of a call back for professional lawncare operators is increasing. Octane herbicide will be a great tool to improve current broadleaf weed control by providing fast and affordable results. Faster visible results will reduce consumer call backs and consequently provide cost savings for lawncare operators” says Roger Storey, Vice President, Turf & Ornamental Business Unit, SePRO Corporation. “Octane will be a great addition to our growing list of product offerings for the turf market”.
