Australia to OK BASF's saflufenacil

The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) has recommended the approval of BASF’s herbicide, saflufenacil (trade-marked as Kixor), as a new active ingredient. It is used to control broadleaf weeds prior to crop planting and for industrial applications. BASF received its first approvals for saflufenacil in Latin America in 2009 ( Agrow No 574, p 27). It launched several saflufenacil-based products in the US and Canada last year ( Agrow No 589, p 25). The Australian approval decision is subject to a 28-day public comment period from December 6th.
