Summit Agro USA, LLC

CARY, N.C., Oct. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- American almond growers have a powerful new tool for both pre-emergence and post-emergence weed control: MISSION® herbicide by Summit Agro.

"Grape, citrus, tree nut and conifer growers have increasingly taken advantage of the long-lasting residual weed control provided by MISSION since we first introduced the product in 2012" said Jon Forbis, Herbicide Marketing Manager. "We are pleased to now offer this effective herbicide tool to almond growers."

MISSION herbicide contains the active ingredient flazasulfuron, which is absorbed through the roots and foliage of difficult to control grass and broadleaf weeds including Italian rye grass, Hairy fleabane and Filaree species. "The broad application window, low application rate and compatibility with burndown products will provide almond growers with a great deal of flexibility." noted Forbis.

MISSION herbicide is available exclusively through Tenkoz member companies and Helena Chemical Company. For more information, visit or call your local representative.
