“Halvetic is a herbicide present on the market for three years, which was developed based on the innovative BGT technology, registered in Poland by Ciech Sarzyna. The product allows you to maintain the current effectiveness of glyphosate-based products, while reducing the dose of the active substance per hectare by half, compared to the existing market standard. This is a breakthrough on the global glyphosate formulation market, and at the same time the Ciech Group’s response to the challenges related to the transformation of agriculture towards a more sustainable one. The effectiveness of Halvetic has been confirmed in about 500 trials and field tests conducted in several climatic zones and on four continents.
