Ask The Expert: Why You Should Consider Turf Products in November

In our industry, in order to stay ahead of your competitors, you have to plan ahead of time. With winter right around the corner, profitable opportunities for the upcoming seasons of 2021 can be overlooked. This is the best time for you to take your business to the next level of success with turf product purchasing. We’ve connected with Bob Hartman, our Director of Turf, to discuss why you should consider turf products in November!

From Bob:

As the season is winding down, your turf winterizing products have been spread, you’ve sprayed your last round of broadleaf control products, you have applied your anti-desiccants to your trees & shrubs and you think it may be time to relax as it relates to the turf category; but that could not be further from the truth.

In the fall, the manufacturers play a big role in product listings and purchasing decisions. This is the time of year when new products are introduced to the market. This is a great time for contractors to connect with the Central Sales Team as they can help identify what new products will make sense for your business. It’s also a time to talk about what products have been discontinued or changed. Central can help you with any problems you are seeing. Our alternative products will save you labor, time, and provide you with best in class solutions.

This is also the time of year that manufacturers offer end user rebates on products you purchase on an annual basis. The Central Sales Team has a list of all end user rebates, by manufacturer, which they can share with you now, so you can see your true net cost. These rebates allow you to be even more competitive in the marketplace. We have found, in most instances, a lot of contractors were unaware that these rebates even existed.

But when you think of the best opportunity available to you, as it relates to profitability, it’s committing to your purchases at this time of year for the upcoming season. We offer several programs that can be tailored to fit your budget, your buying habits, your cash flow and your overall needs. Reach out to a Central Sales Person and they can show you the way to profitability when securing your next years’ agronomic needs.
