Roundup to launch wand and stronger concentrations

Roundup returns to Glee (12-14 September Birmingham NEC) with new product launches.

Roundup has redesigned its range with three clear product ranges: Roundup TOTAL, Roundup TOUGH and Roundup PATH.

The new look 2017 range for the glyphosate-based product now includes Roundup Optima+ concentrate, Roundup Gel for targeted application and a new Path and Drive range, specifically for use on hard surfaces.

Roundup will be launching its newly designed Pump N Go 5.0L that allows up to 10 minutes of controllable spraying, and features improved packaging for easier storage for both retailers and customers. Also new for 2017, Tough Roundup Gel is 10 times stronger than Original Roundup Gel,  for tackling tree stumps and deep-rooted, woody perennial weeds.

Glee will also see Roundup launch the telescopic Gel Wand that dispenses the weedkiller through a trigger.

Roundup lawn and garden business director Gary Philpotts said: "We’re pleased to be bringing even more good news to retailers at this year’s show - 2017 is an exciting year for Roundup with new products hitting the market, especially with the new telescopic Gel Wand which is a great addition to our range.

Roundup has four of the top five weedkiller lines in GfK’s weedkiller chart, helping Roundup’s market share grow to over 39 per cent, with a 3.3 per cent increase since last year between January-June 2016.
