From Oct. 1 to Dec. 5, lawn care operators can save in four ways, including off-invoice volume discounts, select product rebates, agronomic pairing incentives and fall purchase tier rebates.

PRE3 Agronomic Pairing Incentive: Applying the PRE3 program in late fall provides proactive resistance management for maximum control of Poa annua. The solution is based on mixing Specticle FLO, Tribute Total and simazine for a PRE and POST combination approach.

Dual-Defense Agronomic Pairing Incentive: In the defense of lawns against weeds, lawn care operators need effective preventative and curative strategies. Bayer has it covered on both ends with Specticle FLO preemergence and Celsius® XTRA postemergence herbicides.
