Arysta’s Proponit gets Russian approval
Arysta LifeScience has received complete registration for its herbicide, Proponit EC (propisochlor 720 g/litre), on maize, spring oilseed rape and sunflowers in Russia. The approval is valid for ten years. The product is already registered in Chile, Mexico and Ukraine. It was introduced in Ukraine in 2010 and has proved to be “very successful” in the market. Globally, Proponit is applied on maize, sunflowers, oilseed rape and soybeans. It is also under development on sugar beet. Arysta acquired Proponit from Hungarian agrochemical company Nitrokemia in 2006 ( Agrow No 501, p 1).
