Large trials for Bayer's Sakura in Australia

Bayer CropScience is to carry out large-scale trials of its pre-emergence cereal herbicide, Sakura (Kumiai Chemical’s pyroxasulfone), in Australia this year. The trials at over 200 sites across the country will be used to validate the performance of the product using standard farm equipment, the company points out. Some of the trials will cover 60-100 ha, it adds. Sakura is due to be introduced in 2012. A launch had been planned for this year, but was delayed because of the need for more studies ( Agrow No 602, p 25).
