Bayer innovation chemistry saves time and resources

A fall application extends the season, allowing land managers to spread out the application period and better utilize crews and equipment. And by applying in the fall, you can fully utilize the soil residual benefits and flexibility of a Bayer bareground program.

  • Focuses on weed control before weeds have an opportunity to produce more seed
  • Often provides season-long vegetation control with one application
  • Reduces the need for mechanical treatments
  • Saves time, money and helps balance spring workloads – resources can be reallocated to other beneficial needs

Weed species controlled:
Kochia, Russian thistle, cheatgrass, bindweed, marestail and Italian ryegrass. See product label for complete list of weeds.

Geography matters

Since effective bareground control is not a one-treatment-fits-all approach, it’s important to consider tank-mix combinations based on the weeds present at each site. Esplanade provides tank-mix and custom blend flexibility to help control a broad-spectrum of weeds consistently across variable geographies.

Due to variability in rainfall, temperatures, weeds, and soil types across the U.S., it’s important to consult with your Bayer Area Sales Manager for weed identification and to discuss the product solutions and tank-mixes that are most effective for your area.

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.
