Bayer CropScience introduces Bayer Specticle G

The granule herbicide provides up to six months of broad-spectrum weed control.

| February 8, 2013

Environmental Science, a division of Bayer CropScience LP, has launched Bayer Specticle G – a pre-emergent herbicide that provides green industry professionals up to six months of broad-spectrum weed control for use in landscapes, including mulched areas and around ornamentals, and in warm-season turf.

“Green industry professionals invest a lot of time and resources in the control of troublesome weeds,” said Jeff Michel, herbicide business manager at Bayer. “Specticle G sets a new standard for residual control at the lowest use rates on the market. This helps lawn and landscape maintenance managers save on time, fuel and labor costs by reducing the number of treatments needed to achieve optimal results.”

Bayer Specticle G protects against a broad spectrum of more than 80 grassy and broadleaf weeds, as well as annual sedges. The product requires up to 40 times less active ingredient than current standards, resulting in significantly less herbicide placed in the environment. In addition, unlike other pre-emergent herbicides, the applicator-friendly formulation will not stain or leave any odor behind after treatment.

“Specticle controls even the most stubborn weeds, like Poa annua,” said Michel. “It helps maintain premium, weed-free landscape beds for the entire growing season – making it one of the most effective tools in any turf manager’s arsenal.”

Application and Use
Bayer Specticle G is formulated for convenient storage, measuring and spreading. Apply the product at 100-200 lbs. of product per acre (2.3-4.6 lbs. per 1000 sq. ft.) around ornamentals. A subsequent application of Bayer Specticle G can be made within 90 days after the initial application to extend weed control provided that the total amount of product applied does not exceed 400 lbs. per acre (9.2 lbs. per 1000 sq. ft.) in a 12-month period.
