Glyphomax XRT also contains a new surfactant for ease of handling and convenient use. Approved for use on all Roundup Ready crops, including corn, soybeans, cotton and canola, the product offers non-selective control of more than 100 perennial and annual broadleaf weeds and grasses.
“Bringing this new, high-load glyphosate to the market is part of our commitment to our customers to invest in improved formulations and products,” Miller adds.
