Arysta LifeScience launches EVEREST® GBX for cross-spectrum control of grassy and broadleaf weeds in one pass

Grassy and broadleaf weeds are no match for EVEREST GBX 

CALGARY, AB (February 25, 2010) – Producing spring wheat in Canada just got a little less complicated. Growers now have the best in class control of grassy and broadleaf weeds in one pass. EVEREST® GBX when combined with the grower’s choice of phenoxy controls more weeds better than other single product on the market today. More importantly, it targets the most difficult weeds to control.

Weeds like buckwheat, cleavers and kochia along with other yield robbers like flushing wild oats and green foxtail can be silenced in one pass. “The advantage of EVEREST® GBX is its ability to be customized, based on individual weed spectrum and pressure,” says Craig Brekkas, marketing and key account manager, Western Canada for Arysta LifeScience. “Rates are flexible and can be changed based on your weed concerns providing a wide weed spectrum and economy at the same time. It really gives more control at better value to maximize yields.”

EVEREST® GBX combines two powerful herbicides that together aid in resistance management – providing powerful Group 2 and Group 4 activity in one easy to use product.

EVEREST® GBX is built from the proven, Flush after flush™, foundation herbicide, EVEREST®. With the addition of Group 4 fluroxypyr and combined with 2,4-D or MCPA it provides control of a broad spectrum of grassy and broadleaf weeds better in just one pass.
