PBI-Gordon’s 2020 Early Order Program (EOP) gives golf course turf managers terrific deals when you order qualifying products from a PBI-Gordon distributor between Oct. 1 and Dec. 11, 2020. But did you know that if you place an order before Oct. 31, you can maximize your rebate and get even better deals? Here’s how it works:
You can increase your rebate by up to 25% when you reach qualifying rebate levels:
- Level 1: Rebates that reach $500 to $999 get a 15% bonus*
- Level II: Rebates that reach $1,000 or more get a 25% bonus*
*The rebate bonus is calculated from the rebate amount. For example, if your rebate is $750, your rebate bonus will be $112.50 ($750 × 15%). Added together, your total rebate would equal $862.50.
2020 EOP featured products
PBI-Gordon’s 2020 EOP features 16 of the company’s most popular products, including SpeedZone EW, an advanced emulsion-in-water formulation that puts more of the product’s active ingredients on the weed for more complete coverage and exceptional performance. Other products featured in this year’s EOP program include:
- Union Fungicide SC: Two active ingredients provide broad-spectrum disease control, including superior Pythium disease protection.
- Kabuto Fungicide SC: Kabuto is proven to provide industry-leading control of spring dead spot, plus preventive and curative control of dollar spot in turfgrass, including the carboxamide-resistant kind.
- Tekken Broad Spectrum Fungicide: Combines two active ingredients to give golf course turf managers dependable control of 21 of the most problematic diseases in turf, including dollar spot, brown patch and anthracnose.
- Segway Fungicide SC: University and real-world trials show Segway Fungicide SC provides proven protection against Pythium disease over a period of seven to 28 days.
- Vexis Herbicide Granular: A proprietary formulation delivers exceptional control of sedges and kyllingas, plus additional listed broadleaf weeds.
- Q4 Plus Turf Herbicide for Grassy and Broadleaf Weeds: One single product to control crabgrass and yellow nutsedge, as well as other tough broadleaf weeds.
- SpeedZone EW Broadleaf Herbicide for Turf: This herbicide features a novel emulsion-in-water (EW) formulation — a technological advance from emulsifiable concentrate (EC) formulations. The EW formulation creates smaller-sized particles than EC formulations, meaning that more active ingredient gets on the leaf surface for improved efficiency.

- Katana Turf Herbicide: Katana is a selective post-emerge herbicide that controls annual and perennial grasses, sedges and broadleaf weeds. Highly selective in most warm-season turfgrasses, Katana is also an excellent product for removal of overseeded cool-season grasses.
- SpeedZone Southern EW: Features an advanced emulsion-in-water formulation that provides rapid control of tough broadleaf weeds in sensitive southern turfgrasses.
- TZone SE Broadleaf Herbicide for Tough Weeds: Uses the proven performance of triclopyr and precise ratios of multiple active ingredients to provide effective cool-weather weed control in a speed product.
