Canadian use extension for Dow's Starane II
The Canadian Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) has proposed the extended approval of Dow AgroSciences’ herbicide, Starane II (fluroxypyr 333 g/litre), for the post-emergence control or suppression of kochia ( Kochia scoparia) in industrial and other non-crop areas. It represents a major new use for the herbicide, the PMRA notes. Starane II is approved in Canada for use on small-grain cereals, rangeland and pasture. The extension decision is subject to a 45-day comment period from July 20th.
