Bayer's Laudis goes aerial in North Dakota
The US North Dakota Department of Agriculture has issued a special local needs (SLN) registration for Bayer CropScience's herbicide, Laudis (tembotrione ), to allow aerial application on maize fields too wet to access with ground equipment. The approval is intended to allow the control of kochia (Kochia scoparia) and certain glyphosate-resistant weeds. Kochia is one of the most serious weed problems in North Dakota and much of the kochia in the state is resistant to other herbicides, the Department notes. The SLN approval expires on December 31st 2017.
