Australia to approve Bayer's Sakura

The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) has proposed the approval of Bayer CropScience’s herbicide, Sakura 850 WG (Kumiai Chemical’s pyroxasulfone), for use on wheat, barley and triticale. The N-phenylphthalamide herbicide would be approved as a new active ingredient in the country. It would be the first global approval for the herbicide. Sakura is for the pre-emergence control of broadleaf weeds and grasses, including annual ryegrass ( Lolium rigidum) and barley grass ( Hordeum glaucum). Bayer is carrying out large-scale trials this year ahead of a planned launch in 2012 ( Agrow No 617, p 22).
