BASF/Embrapa to debut new Clearfield rice
BASF and the Brazilian agricultural research corporation, the Embrapa, have co-developed a imidazolinone herbicide-tolerant rice line. BRS Sinuelo CL is a Clearfield rice variety tolerant to BASF’s herbicide, Only (imazethapyr + imazapic), for the control of red rice ( Oryza sativa). The companies will debut the product this season in Brazil’s Rio Grande do Sul state. They expect 5% of the state’s rice area to be planted with Only-herbicide-tolerant rice.
