Bayer CropScience launches non-selective herbicide Specticle Total

SpecticleTotal_1Gal_RGB (2)To help turf managers more effectively manage areas of unwanted weeds and grasses, Environmental Science, a division of Bayer CropScience LP, today announced Specticle® Total – a non-selective herbicide with unparalleled residual control. Specticle Total not only kills existing weeds, it prevents new ones for up to six months. It is easily mixed in a backpack sprayer.

“Landscape managers struggle to maintain effective, season-long control of weeds in landscape and hardscape areas,” said Jeff Michel, herbicides business manager for Bayer’s professional turf and ornamentals business. “Specticle Total helps them save time and money by delivering effective, long-lasting control in a convenient application – thereby reducing the need for re-treatments.”

Specticle Total provides lawn care professionals and golf course superintendents fast, effective control with visible results in hours. It is rainproof in 30 minutes and uses less active ingredient, which results in less herbicide in the environment. Specticle Total can be used in a variety of landscape and hardscape areas, including mulched areas and around ornamental plants and grasses. It can be used around buildings, fence rows, decorative gravel and lava rock areas, as well as in parking lots, paths and walkways, driveways and sidewalks, patios, rocky or sandy areas in desert climates and bare-ground, non-crop areas.
