Syngenta plans to launch two new Touchdown glyphosate herbicides in the U.S. for the 2004 season. Touchdown Total and Touchdown Hitech will complement the established Touchdown IQ and TouchdownCF products.

Touchdown Total is a glyphosate herbicide product targeted mainly for glyphosate-tolerant crops and will be labeled for use in soybeans, cotton and corn, in addition to preemergence treatments in conservation tillage systems.

Touchdown Hitech is a highly concentrated glyphosate product designed mainly for markets where customers use their own additives, and to penetrate dense foliage.
