Bayer to unveil vegetation management herbicide

August 23, 2013 -  By

Environmental Science, a division of Bayer CropScience, is slated to launch Esplanade EZ—a new vegetation preemergent herbicide for protecting municipal infrastructure—at the American Public Works Association (APWA) International Public Works Congress & Exposition in Chicago, Aug. 25–28.

“Municipal maintenance programs typically require three to five herbicide applications per six-month growing season,” said Matt Nespeca, manager of Bayer’s Industrial Vegetation Management business. “Esplanade EZ can control weeds for up to six months with a single application. This helps municipal managers reduce their overall labor expenditure and operate more efficiently by allowing them to focus their crews on other activities.”

The product may be applied in bare ground areas such as roadsides, curbs, sidewalks, gravel yards and parking lots.
