Barricade® Herbicide Features Long-Term Guaranteed Crabgrass Control

The only herbicide on the market with the long residual and performance to last throughout the season following application, Barricade® pre-emergence herbicide is supported by a money-back guarantee that the product will control crabgrass well into 2009.  According to Syngenta Professional Products, Barricade is unique in the marketplace.
The Barricade Fall Guarantee Program is ideal for lawn care operators (LCOs) who prefer to get a jump start on spring crabgrass control on cool season turf. For LCOs who typically make spring herbicide applications, The Barricade Spring Guarantee Program covers product performance through fall 2009. Registration for both programs begins September 2008.
To register online for The Barricade Guarantee Programs, LCOs can go to or call 1-800-395-TURF (8873). All program details are available on the web site, including prescribed rates and application dates for each region of the U.S.
Details of The Barricade Guarantee Program include:
• Customers who purchase $5,000 or more of any combination of Barricade flowable, Barricade 65WG water-dispersible granule formulation, or Barricade on-fertilizer from authorized Syngenta Channel Partners between September 1, 2008 and May 15, 2009 qualify for the program.
• In addition to a minimum $5,000 purchase of the Barricade products, lawn care operators must apply the products according to the label at the proper rate, conditions, application date and timing to qualify for the program.
• In the unlikely event of crabgrass breakthrough, submit a claim by August 1, 2009. Syngenta will verify purchase levels and a Syngenta territory manager will work with the claimant to determine eligibility for reimbursement of products (up to $80 per acre).
• An area cannot be covered by both the Fall program and the Spring programs. Thus, LCOs can decide which program – Fall or Spring - best suits their needs for the particular property.
“In many climates, a single fall application of Barricade will control next season’s crabgrass, as well as many other broadleaf and grassy weeds. A spring application will last until fall of the same year,” said Bob Goglia, lawn market manager for Syngenta Professional Products. “Because Barricade gives lawn care operators maximum application flexibility, it allows them to spread out their workloads, and save time and money related to callbacks. The Barricade Guarantee Program is another way Syngenta gives lawn care operators an added layer of confidence in their herbicide purchase.”
