Accord XRT II specialty herbicide (Circle 909), a new high-load, non-selective herbicide from Dow AgroSciences that provides vegetation managers with the latest innovation in glyphosate technology, has been accepted for use by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The advanced glyphosate formulation is easier to handle and gives applicators improved tankmixing capability—even in cool temperatures.

Accord XRT II, featuring a patented DMA salt, delivers proven, consistent broad-spectrum control of more than 100 annual and perennial weeds, plus woody plants in a formulation with lower viscosity. In addition, the low-odor, low-foam formulation contains a proprietary blend of surfactants that helps deliver superior performance on target species and reduces the chance for measuring and mixing errors.

Accord XRT II contains 5.4 lb of active ingredient per gallon, resulting in less handling and lower use rates so vegetation managers can treat more acres per gallon when compared to 4-lb active ingredient formulations.

Accord XRT II will be available in 2008 in Continuum Prescription Control & Container Management System-returnable, refillable containers that eliminate disposal issues and save applicators time.
