Bayer seeks to import Sakura to New Zealand

Bayer CropScience has applied to the New Zealand Environmental Protection Authority to import its herbicide, Sakura 850 WG (Kumiai Chemical's pyroxasulfone 85%), for use on wheat. It is for the control of various grass weeds including annual and perennial ryegrass (Lolium spp), brome (Bromus spp), annual poa (Poa annua), vulpia hairgrass (Vulpia bromoides), barley grass (Hordeum spp) and wild oats (Avena spp). Pyroxasulfone has a unique mode of action, which allows the control of some weeds not easily controlled by other currently registered herbicides, Bayer points out. The company made its first global launch of Sakura in Australia for the 2012 season. The New Zealand application is open to public comment until February 2nd.
