fall application benefit

Think forward. Think fall bareground applications.

A Bayer fall bareground application program provides operational benefits and herbicide resistance management.

Crew and other operational benefits

A fall application reduces weed retreats and the need for expensive reactive mechanical treatments. This also reduces the time crews are working in potentially dangerous bareground areas.

  • Minimizes the risk to public (thrown rocks, accidents) and management crew (vehicles hitting mowers) when mechanical treatments are required
  • Maintains structural stability of infrastructure when weeds are not present
  • Helps reduce the amount of dead weeds, grass, and brush hazards associated with wildfire and obstructed lines-of-sight

“The most dangerous job in our district is mowing and string trimming on the interstate. Not just dangerous for us, but for the public also.”

– Southern Roadside District Superintendent


Herbicide resistance management

The key to managing herbicide resistance is using multiple modes of action in the tank at the time of application. Tank-mixing with a Group 29 herbicide like Esplanade can help manage weeds that have developed resistance to other herbicide classes. There are no reported instances of cross-resistance in indaziflam, the active ingredient in Esplanade.

Tank mixtures: The applicable labeling for each product must be in the possession of the user at the time of application. Follow applicable use instructions, including application rates, precautions and restrictions of each product used in the tank mixture. Not all tank mix product formulations have been tested for compatibility or performance other than specifically listed by brand name. Always predetermine the compatibility of tank mixtures by mixing small proportional quantities in advance.
