| October 1, 2013

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. – Environmental Science, a division of Bayer CropScience LP, today announced Specticle FLO and Celsius are approved for use in California. Specticle FLO, a pre-emergent herbicide, protects against a broad spectrum of broadleaf and grassy weeds including Poa annua, crabgrass and goosegrass. Celsius delivers post-emergent control of more than 150 weeds, and offers reduced risk of phytotoxicity during summer months compared with other post-emergent herbicides.

“We’re pleased to help turf managers in California simplify operations and grow their businesses  with the latest technology in  pre- and post-emergent weed control,” says Jeff Michel, herbicide business manager for Bayer’s turf and ornamentals business. “Specticle FLO’s long-term residual requires fewer applications, which helps cut fuel, labor and pesticide costs and Celsius helps simplify operations, offering one of the broadest spectrums of control on the market.”

Specticle FLO delivers protection against key grassy weeds such as Poa annua as well as more than 50 broadleaf weeds. It effectively controls weeds at the lowest use rates on the market, requiring up to 40 times less active ingredients than other pre-emergent solutions.

Celsius offers safety on bermudagrass, zoysiagrass, St. Augustinegrass and centipede turf types, and provides a single solution for many difficult-to-control grassy and broadleaf weeds. The product features a convenient application window and requires 25-75 percent less active ingredient than other current post-emergent herbicides.
