BASF's tritosulfuron gains full EU approval
The European Commission has confirmed the completion of the EU registration process for BASF's new small-grain cereal and maize herbicide, tritosulfuron. The active ingredient will be added to Annex I of the EU agrochemical registration Directive (91/414) on December 1st 2008. The approval was cleared by the EU pesticide regulatory committee earlier this year ( Agrow No 545, p 10). Tritosulfuron already holds provisional approvals in several EU countries, where it is available in combination products with dicamba.
