Australia to OK Syngenta's prosulfuron
The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) has proposed the registration of Syngenta’s sulfonylurea herbicide, prosulfuron, as a new active ingredient. It would be for the post-emergence control of broadleaf weeds in turf. Prosulfuron has been sold in Europe and North America since the 1990s for use on maize and small-grain cereals. The APVMA decision is subject to a 28-day public comment period from January 17th.
