Australia to approve ISK's flazasulfuron
The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) has proposed the approval of Ishihara Sangyo Kaisha’s sulfonylurea herbicide, flazasulfuron, as a new active ingredient. It is for the pre- and post-emergence control of grasses, broadleaf weeds and sedges in warm-season turf. Flazasulfuron was launched for use on turf in Japan in 1989 and has since been introduced elsewhere in Asia, Europe and the Americas on turf, grapevines, sugar cane, olives, citrus and for non-crop use. The APVMA decision is open to public comment until June 20th.
