The article reports on the use of the pre-emergence grassweed herbicide Defy from Syngenta. The late approval for the product's marketing has met seemingly same advantages of the chemical product released by Avadex company. Iain Hamilton of Syngenta says Defy differs from Avadex's because it is a liquid that does not need specialist equipment to apply. It also has low volatility, and while Avadex is strong on wild oats, Defy is not, he claims.
