US OKs Bayer cereal herbicide mix
Bayer CropScience has received US approval for a new cereal herbicide based on established active ingredients. Huskie Complete (pyrasulfotole + thiencarbazone-methyl + bromoxynil + mefenpyr-diethyl safener) is for the post-emergence control of a range of grasses and broadleaf weeds in spring, winter and durum wheat. It is the first use of thiencarbazone-methyl in a small-grain cereal herbicide, the company points out. The company indicated last year that it was planning to combine the maize herbicide in a cereal herbicide mixture ( Agrow No 620, p 23). Bayer received US approval for pyrasulfotole on cereals in 2007 and introduced it in combination with bromoxynil as Huskie in 2008 ( Agrow No 526, p 22).
