We now offer Glyphosate Original brand glyphosate, a stand-alone product labeled for over-the-top applications in Roundup Ready[R] cotton, through the 4-leaf stage.

Harvest Aids: CottonQuik[R], our enhanced-ethephon product, opens bolls faster than other products in this class. We now offer FreeFall[TM] brand thidiazuron, the No. 1 defoliant active. When these two products are mixed together, they produce a synergistic effect that speeds up leaf drop and boll opening. Super Boll[R] brand ethephon rounds out our harvest aids.
