Environmental Science, a division of Bayer CropScience LP, launched Esplanade EZ – a new vegetation solution for protecting municipal infrastructure. The product offers municipal maintenance professionals broad-spectrum, pre-emergent control of weeds and grasses in bareground areas such as roadsides, curbs, sidewalks, gravel yards and parking lots.
“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 (IVM) 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.”
Esplanade EZ delivers new herbicide technology in an easy-to-use format that quickly burns down existing vegetation and provides extended residual control of more than 75 grassy and broadleaf weeds.
Bayer entered the industrial vegetation management market in 2011 with the launch of Esplanade 200 SC, a pre-emergent solution for use on railroads, roadsides and industrial areas.
Note: Esplanade EZ is currently EPA registered, and is undergoing state registration this summer. Please check with Bayer to determine if Esplanade EZ is available in your state. For more information visit http://www.BackedbyBayer.com. Always read and follow label instructions.
