SUPPRESS® Herbicide EC Receives EPA Approval

Vista, CA:   Westbridge Agricultural Products announced today the EPA approval of SUPPRESS® Herbicide EC, a highly effective new tool for organic growers. SUPPRESS® Herbicide EC is registered as a broad spectrum contact herbicide for post-emergent, non-selective weed control for use in all agricultural food and non-food crops. The formulation is a proprietary emulsifiable concentrate that has been approved by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) for use in organic food production.
In four years of university research trials, SUPPRESS® Herbicide EC has consistently shown excellent results in controlling various weeds, even under unfavorable conditions. The product provides rapid, effective control under cool and cloudy conditions as well as warm and sunny conditions.
Weed management is an ever-present problem in agriculture. Yields are reduced as weeds compete for space and resources that crops depend on, and weeds act as hosts for pest insects and plant diseases which can move into cultivated crops. Weed control is always a difficult challenge for organic growers and there are few effective and economical options available for use on organic food crops.
“The introduction of this new product is exciting news and what organic growers have been waiting for,” says Westbridge President, Tina Koenemann. “The herbicide will provide growers with a safe and valuable tool to help meet their production goals. It could also prove to be a valuable option for conventional growers to use as a rotational herbicide where resistant weeds have become a problem.”

From its Organic TRIGGRR®, Organic BioLink®, Earthtrend® and SUNBurst® brands to Botector® and Blossom Protect™ biopesticides, Westbridge provides a portfolio of high quality products that provide solutions to growers facing challenges in disease control, pest resistance and nutrient management.
