Dow names new herbicide Arylex

Dow AgroSciences is to sell its new herbicide active ingredient, halauxifen-methyl, under the Arylex brand. It is the first member of a new structural class of synthetic auxins, Dow points out. Arylex controls broadleaf weeds at low rates in a range of crops, it adds. The company plans to market Arylex in mixtures, primarily with other proprietary Dow ais, to create a range of products for specific geographic areas. "The introduction of Arylex active will strengthen Dow AgroSciences' leadership position in the cereal herbicide segment," says Tim Hassinger, vice-president of Dow's crop protection business. The company is evaluating Arylex product concepts around the world in all major herbicide markets, with initial registrations expected in 2014. The US EPA has scheduled an approval decision for the use of halauxifen-methyl on wheat, barley and triticale for the third quarter of 2014 (Agrow No 670, p 22).
