New Innovations Help Land Managers Enhance Public Safety
Wilmington, Del., January 26, 2011 – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has granted DuPont registration approval for DuPont™ Perspective™, Streamline™ and Viewpoint™ herbicides. The three innovations will provide land managers with new tools to help control overgrown vegetation that can cause safety issues, including power outages, fires and road hazards.
Based on aminocyclopyrachlor, a new chemistry from the DuPont pipeline with a favorable environmental profile, these products provide long-lasting control of a wide spectrum of difficult brush and broadleaf weeds in utility rights of way, roadsides, railroad sites, nature preserves, parks and other areas.
“These science-powered innovations demonstrate how DuPont can help land managers improve public safety to protect people,” said Rik L. Miller, incoming president DuPont Crop Protection. “DuPont has a rich pipeline of new, innovative products for land managers as they work to control vegetation that can cause many safety issues.”
The U.S. registration marks the first commercialization of this chemistry, which is being developed for use in land management, pasture/rangeland and sugar cane markets around the world. Commercialization of pasture/rangeland products based on this chemistry is anticipated in the United States in 2013.
The new land management herbicides for the U.S. market were designed to meet the specific needs of a wide range of land managers in multiple settings.
