Pen-A-Trate™ ECO Granted Registration in California

WAUKEGAN, ILL. (April 6, 2020) – Turf, ornamental and aquatics professionals in California now have a more environmentally-friendly option that optimizes the performance of tank-mix partners. Pen-A-Trate ECO is an OMRI-certified, nonionic surfactant, drift reduction agent, and deposition aid.

Precision Laboratories introduced Pen-A-Trate ECO in the fall of 2019. This unique formulation maximizes performance with drift reduction technology that ensures spray applications stay on target, maximizing droplet spread and retention. Additionally, Pen-A-Trate ECO is approved for use in and around aquatic areas. The high-surfactant load also provides improved performance for turf and ornamental spray mixes.

“Increased public awareness and scrutiny regarding the safety and performance of spray applications has brought forth the need for more environmentally friendly products,” says Justin Olmstead, Turf Product Manager at Precision. “Having successfully met the high standards for product registration in the state of California, we are excited to bring this new level of safety and performance to our customers in that state. Pen-A-Trate ECO is a premium surfactant with a safe and more biodegradable formula. It allows the applicator to improve the performance of their applications without negatively impacting the surrounding habitat.”

Pen-A-Trate ECO reduces small droplet sizes that contribute to drift while increasing spray droplet retention to keep more product on the plant. Along with being approved for aquatic use, Pen-A-Trate ECO is also OMRI-listed for peace of mind around homes and public greenspaces.
