OHP becomes bigger player in ornamental herbicide market


Over the course of the next few years, nursery growers will see more OHP products in container and field plantings across the country. We are launching two new herbicides in the next two years to complement Casoron®, our pre-emergent herbicide.


"We are positioned to become a leading player in orna- mental herbicides, much like we are with insecticide/miticides and fungicides," says Dan Stahl, OHP VP of marketing and business development.


First, Biathlon® herbicide will be launched in the second quarter of 2011. The pre-emergent granular product is a combination of oxyfluorfen and prodiamine produced on an easy-to-use, dustfree, and low odor granule.


Biathlon is intended for use in containers and provides long-term broadleaf and grassy weed control at labeled rates. The rate is 100 lbs. per acre with a maximum of two applications (200 lbs. maximum) per acre per year.


The second new herbicide, Marengo, will be launched in 2012 and will contain an entirely new active ingredient for both broadleaf and grassy weed control. The pre-emergent liquid herbicide exhibits excellent plant tolerance.


Stay tuned to OHP for more details on our new herbicides in the coming weeks.
