FMC Announces "Friday Night Lights" Contest Kicks Off for High School Turf Managers
PHILADELPHIA (July 31, 2012) - With high-school football season just weeks away, FMC Professional Solutions will help schools keep players safe from fire ants with the 2012 "Friday Night Lights" contest, running August 1-31, 2012. Three schools will each win ten (10) bags of the new Talstar® XTRA Granular Insecticide featuring Verge™ Technology (a $500 retail value) and all five seasons of NBC's award winning TV show, "Friday Night Lights" on DVD.
Have you recently had a fire ant problem? Have your budgets been slashed? Or do you have players destined for greatness? Visit the FMC promotions web page (click Friday Night Lights) and tell us why your school deserves to win.
"School budgets are shrinking, yet the need for fire ant control is more important than ever. We've all read stories about kids getting stung and games being cancelled," said Adam Manwarren, FMC Product Manager for turf and ornamental products. “FMC is happy to help some deserving schools have a safe football season."
Talstar XTRA featuring Verge Technology offers fast fire ant control—within 15 minutes!—plus season-long residual. It can be applied on fire ant mounds or as a broadcast over fields. And now, formulated on the Verge granule, Talstar XTRA is virtually dust-free, and breaks down and disappears into soil in minutes.
