PRE-PARE™ Now Registered in Canada

Extend your burndown with new PRE-PARE™ Burndown Herbicide by Arysta LifeScience

CARY, NC (December 1, 2009) – Now Canadian spring wheat growers can enjoy a stronger, longer lasting burndown by adding PRE-PARE™ Burndown Herbicide to their glyphosate application. Proven in Canadian trials and current use by U.S. wheat growers, glyphosate plus PRE-PARE improves yields by adding residual activity on wild oats and green foxtail.

“PRE-PARE extends the standard burndown application by making glyphosate work harder and the burndown last longer.” says Craig Brekkas, Product Manager, Western Canada with Arysta LifeScience. “Current products on the market miss the residual grass component. Only PREPARE keeps wild oats and green foxtail from robbing valuable nutrients from an emerging wheat crop. Due to PRE-PARE’s residual control in the soil, vital fertilizer, nitrogen and moisture will be feeding the wheat – not the weeds. It really enhances the value of a glyphosate burndown,” adds Brekkas.

“We’ve had great success with PRE-PARE in the U.S. and we expect Canadian growers to see the benefits offered by using PRE-PARE in their standard glyphosate application. It gives wheat the head start it deserves for higher yields down the line,” concludes Brekkas. Go to or call 1-866-761-9397 toll free for more information.
