Price Reduced For Weed Management Tool

Bayer CropScience has cut the price of Ignite herbicide in time for the 2010 season. The company is reducing its price for the herbicide in the range of 20% effective immediately.

Ignite is a powerful, nonselective herbicide alternative to glyphosate. High-yielding LibertyLink corn, cotton, canola and new LibertyLink soybean varieties enable use of Ignite over-the-top to control weeds efficiently.

“The use of Ignite herbicide and the LibertyLink trait is fundamental in preserving the utility of glyphosate and glyphosate-tolerant crops as a viable crop production tool,” says Andy Hurst, Bayer CropScience product manager for Ignite herbicide and LibertyLink.

“Growers want to avoid weed resistance yet maintain simple and efficient weed management,” Hurst explains. “The launch of LibertyLink in soybeans and new FiberMax cotton varieties with the LibertyLink trait enable effective weed management combined with high yields.”

In corn, growers can take advantage of their Herculex, SmartStax, and Agrisure hybrids with corn borer protection by choosing the cost-effective option of Ignite on those acres this year.

Additionally, Ignite is an effective burndown tool prior to emergence of glyphosate-tolerant crops. Ignite can be applied as a burndown treatment prior to planting or emergence of cotton, soybean, canola, corn or sugarbeet.

Bayer CropScience is fully committed to supplying Ignite herbicide to meet the demand as crop acres with the LibertyLink trait ramp up, Hurst says.

“The company has invested more than $150 million in expansion of Ignite manufacturing capacity to accommodate expected demand,” Hurst says. “In addition to seed and crop protection portfolios, Bayer CropScience will lead in the development and commercialization of next-generation herbicide-tolerant traits and other traits of value in soybeans, cotton, corn, canola, and other crops.”
