Guelph, ON – As of January 1, 2020, Bayer Environmental Science Canada has assumed the marketing and technical support roles for VisionMAX® Silviculture Herbicide. Bayer Environmental Science currently manufactures and markets numerous vegetation management products for use in the industrial vegetation and forestry markets.

“Bayer is excited to add VisionMAX to its forestry portfolio and our team is looking forward to supporting forest managers and their operations across Canada,” says Colin White, Canadian Marketing Manager for Bayer ES. “Through its proven formulation VisionMAX has become a well-established brand within the Canadian forestry industry and is a trusted solution for conifer release and site preparation for forest managers,” says White. “VisionMAX will anchor Bayer’s expanding forestry portfolio which also includes Velpar® for woodland management. With VisionMAX Bayer will continue to offer the same commitment to stewardship and technical support to the forestry industry that has led it to become a recognized leader in the vegetation management industry.”

VisionMAX is a Group 9 herbicide that contains 540 g glyphosate as potassium salt and a unique surfactant mixture in a proven formulation. VisionMAX is water soluble, rainfast within 30 minutes of application and has no residual activity. Bayer is also pleased to announce that Univar Environmental Science will be distributing VisionMAX and will be responsible for the sales and logistics for the Canadian forest industry.
