A new burndown herbicide offering improvements over previous products powered by Roundup Technology will be available to wheat growers across the Western Great Plains in time for spring burndown, 2013.

The new product, branded RT 4 herbicide, is specially reformulated for farmer and retailer use and can be applied preplant, post-harvest and to fallow ground and will replace the current RT 3 brand going forward.

RT 4 is an American-made product that has been tested and formulated exclusively for Western Plains growing conditions. It will be priced competitively with foreign-made generic glyphosate formulations, according to Monsanto. Wayne J. Jelinek, Monsanto U.S. Roundup and RT 4 Manager, explains that growers will notice significant improvements in RT 4 over the previous RT 3 herbicide.

 “The most noticeable benefits will be the improved handling characteristics and reduced foaming,” Jelinek explains. “The new herbicide will maintain the same level of concentration, offering improved logistical efficiency by covering more acres per gallon than most generics and branded imitators.”

RT 4 herbicide will also feature reliable, consistent performance on tough-to-control weeds, including annual and perennial weeds, improved performance under cool and wet spring conditions, and better performance during hot and dry summer weather, according to Monsanto.

“Monsanto’s commitment to bringing improved formulations to growers across the U.S. and the world is our primary objective,” Jelinek stresses. “Roundup brand agricultural herbicides have been on the market since 1974, and we have worked hard to improve these formulations many times over. We are not yet finished, and Monsanto will continue to improve on its flagship herbicide brands.”

RT 4 herbicide will be supported by Monsanto’s Tough Weed, Tough Conditions Warranty and the Roundup 30-Minute Rainfast Warranty. Monsanto will begin shipping RT 4 in November of 2012, making this latest brand available for the Spring 2013 burndown season.
