Brazil Anvisa OKs BASF's saflufenacil

The Brazilian health inspection agency, the Anvisa, has added the BASF herbicide, saflufenacil (trademarked as Kixor), to its list of approved pesticide active ingredients. The Anvisa is the first of three required competent authorities’ approvals, and this is the first positive Anvisa recommendation this year. It considers the toxicological profile of ais. The approval is for use on 16 crops including cotton, maize, sugar cane and soybeans, variably as a pre- and post-emergent application and as a dessicant, all subject to a 30-day comment period from March 22nd. The application would then pass to the Ministries of the Environment and Agriculture for full commercial approval. BASF received first approvals for saflufenacil in Argentina, Chile and Nicaragua, where it is sold as Heat ( Agrow No 574, p 27).
