Esplanade 200 SC will be the first product offered from the new industrial vegetation management group of Bayer CropScience LP's Environmental Science division. Esplanade offers extended residual broad-spectrum weed control and low use rates.

“Esplanade is the next generation in long-lasting, pre-emergent weed performance that answers the needs of today's industrial vegetation managers and applicators,” said Gilles Galliou, vice president of commercial operations for Bayer. “For customers seeking greater efficacy and improved safety, this product will provide an excellent solution for control of unwanted vegetation on roadsides, railroads and industrial areas.”

Esplanade is the most powerful cellulose-biosynthesis inhibitor herbicide discovered to date with up to 60 times less active ingredient on the ground when compared to competitive products. It has superior broad-spectrum control of more than 75 weed species that lasts up to eight months.
