Imaflex acquires pesticide film technology from Bayer

The Canadian company, Imaflex (Montreal, Quebec), has acquired the global rights and assets to Advaseal, a plastic film formulation for the controlled release of pesticides, from Bayer subsidiary Bayer Innovation. The acquisition includes the herbicide-coated product, Advaseal HSM, which has received US EPA approval for the control of broadleaf weeds and sedges, and also reduces fumigant emissions. Imaflex plans to introduce the product in spring 2015. The Advaseal technology differs from Imaflex's proprietary co-extruded agricultural film technology in being able to release herbicides, fungicides and nematicides simultaneously, which is a pre-requisite for fumigant replacement products, the company notes. It can be processed at ambient temperatures, allowing use with biological products. Imaflex plans to submit its first co-extruded herbicide film formulation for US registration next year.
