GREENSBORO, N.C. – Refuge non-selective herbicide from Syngenta has received registration from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for use on aquatic and wetland sites, forestry, railroad, utility and other vegetation management sites.

With five pounds-per-gallon of glyphosate acid, Refuge is the most concentrated liquid glyphosate formulation labeled for the vegetation management market. It offers broad-spectrum, systemic and non-selective control of more than 170 emerged annual and perennial grass and broadleaf weeds, and unwanted woody brush and trees.

“Refuge is 25 percent more concentrated than the most common glyphosate products labeled for vegetation management, making it effective and convenient for customers,” says Dan Steltz, market manager, Syngenta Lawn & Landscape. “Applicators are able to handle and store 25 percent less material and rinse and dispose of 25 percent fewer containers.”

Additional features include:
• Tank-mix compatibility with many other herbicide products
• Rainfast within 30 minutes after application
• Purchases by professional aquatic applicators qualify for the 2010 H2O Pro Spring Purchase Program

As with all products, it is important to read and follow label instructions when using Refuge.

Refuge is not currently registered for sale or use in all states. Please check with your state or local extension service before buying or using this product.
