3. Sugars in our product increase the elasticity of the pre-emergent barrier.

Reduction in usage is not seen in all pesticides.
These are really far-fetched claims and don't make sense from a plant physiology perspective.

Ask your sales rep for the peer reviewed university research data backing his assertions. If he can't give you any, then the claims are nothing more than hot air.
