Bayer debuts Adengo in Portugal
Bayer CropScience has launched its maize herbicide, Adengo (thiencarbazone-methyl 90 g/litre + isoxaflutole 225 g/litre + cyprosulfamide safener 150 g/litre), in Portugal. The suspension concentrate formulation is for pre- and early post-emergence use against broadleaf weeds and grasses. It affords broad-spectrum residual control, the company says. The EU granted full approval for thiencarbazone-methyl earlier this year (Agrow No 680, p 6). Adengo was launched in Argentina in 2010, and the same combinations debuted in the US as Corvus (Agrow No 598, p 38). The first approval for thiencarbazone-methyl came in 2008 in Romania, where it was also introduced as Adengo (Agrow No 551, p 22).
